Publisher's Summary

Most of the human race believes in a life beyond the here-and-now. Religious writings have put such beliefs into words - often esoteric, mysterious words - for thousands of years. Among such writings are those which form the Christian Bible: the 66 books commonly called the Old and New Testaments.
Strangely, the Bible doesn't say much about what the life which lies beyond is like - that is, how it is actually lived. There are excellent reasons why, of course - chief among them being that while we are living here, we should focus on living this life as God would have us live it.
The Bible insists, however, that we are connected to the life beyond in a cause-and-effect way - that is, how you live here determines how you live hereafter.
Morover, tantalizing allusions to Heaven are scattered throughout the Bible.
The Last Bridge weaves a tale about a man who actually travels beyond this life and world, experiencing the reality of what the Bible hints at. It is not, however, merely an imaginative travelogue. Our hero is a stubborn agnostic....one who has been deeply wounded by life. What his adventures do to him - and the events in which he becomes involved - form an absorbing narrative full of surprises all the way to the final page.

Loved it

What did you love best about The Last Bridge?

Compelling story, dulcet narrator,


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Bridge?

The narrator's voice, and the fact that the son is reading the late father's words.


What about Michael A. Smith’s performance did you like?

Michael Smith has a voice like butter. One can easily become lulled away from the story at times because of that quality.


Any additional comments?

Look forward to the sequel which I pray is forthcoming

Where does The Last Bridge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the very best


Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was, of course, the hero, who struggles with his own faith while experiencing the very fulfillment of it. Also the Angel Rynniel, who teams up with the hero near the end of the story.


What about Michael A. Smith’s performance did you like?

The performance was articulate, clear, well-paced, and he did a remarkable job with all of the character voices, especially the non-human ones.


Any additional comments?

It is interesting to note that the author has a doctor of Divinity degree, and the incredible breadth of details are all well within biblical teaching, despite the fictional nature of the story.
