Philosophy & Religion • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

The ultimate "lofty" topic is brought within grasp in this beautiful reading by British-born actor Simon Vance. Heaven is examined as a physical, spiritual and metaphorical concept developed from Greek and Hebrew notions of the afterlife, and depicted in early Christian teachings, art and folklore; in the works of Saints Augustine and Thomas Aquinas; and in THE Divine Comedy of Dante. Vance, whose audio repertoire includes works by Eric Ambler, P. G. Wodehouse and a biography of Oscar Wilde, articulates Russell's scholarly words with such crisp elegance that the subject is made accessible, and listening is a little slice of heaven.
