Format: Paperback
I came across this book after having read John Milton's "Paradise Lost", which refers to a great war in Heaven, and Dante's "Divine Comedy", covering much the same thing ... while those two texts are centuries old, and written as poem, this book is new - and presented as a conventional fiction. It is well written and fascinating, and I recommend it to anyone interested in the topic.

The actual term - war in Heaven - is Biblical, found in the Book of Revelation. It's meaning is open to interpretation: Milton took it as the war that led to Lucifer being exiled to Hell just before God created the Earth. Most others view it as referring to the end of days, when Satan will build his forces and assault Heaven. This is the premise of the present book.

It's about a group of humans, most suffering in Hell, who are freed by the fallen angel Abaddon and mount an attack on Satan - who, all the while, seeks to defeat the forces of Heaven.

This book, while readable on its own, is the second in a trilogy. The entire trilogy is exciting, and well worth a read. While encompassing epic battles, it's also a story about love.

If you love Jesus may I recommend that you do NOT read any of the books in this series, I read the first one, forcing myself at times and felt utterly filthy at the end of it. I started the second just in case and it was disgusting and totally unscriptural.

In many ways this second book in the Tears in Heaven series is better than the first. Mainly because you already know the key characters from the first book and it means the book grabs you very early on. Has a fictional novel it's very good, entertaining and well worth a read. I wasn't all that sure with the way the book protrayed the war in heaven. There were times when it felt more like a human war. But that said it's well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Novel of the War in Heaven with Revelation Truths 31 Aug. 2009
By Robert A. Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is/was a tough book for me to review and read. I typically do not read novels, but stick to spiritual growth for the building of the body of Christ, and theology of the Word.
The 'story' as told by Kenneth Zeigler is quite unique. It grabs your attention! We know of the Word in the Book of Revelation, but this novel, that is part of the Tears of Heaven series is enlightening, easy to read, a story to tell, and a book for the Bible novel reader. It is a book for 'prayer warriors'to read. The novel stage is set with the reference from the Book of Revelation 12: 7-9.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was so excited to recieve this book 29 Aug. 2009
By K. Commesso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a MUST read. If you have read the first book you must read this one. Moving, exciting, emotional roller coaster. As soon as I took this out of my mailbox I sat and read for over an hour. The battle continues into Heaven. Lucifer and his hatred for humans continue in this story. I felt as if I was standing in the middle of this war. I do suggest reading the first book though. For those of you who have read it, you will be hanging on the side of your seat with the last chapter of this book. For me the Spiritual cliff hanger has me wanting more! Please consider this on your must read Christian books. I just pray this author releases another book soon!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Science Fiction verses the Supernatural 10 Sept. 2013
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ken's first book was better in that it was more credible and less sci-fi. I find it hard to marry the supernatural with sci-fi, but that could be just me. I am not a sci-fi fan and found myself skipping the technical stuff. God and Jesus in this book reminded me more of how Sherrylyn Kenyon portrays the gods of ancient Greece in the Dark Hunter series. More like glorified men. Jesus at best comes across as a demi-god.
It was said of Jesus that...
"It was as if a portion of God's divine spirit had been placed into a vessel of flesh. He was well known and respected by this assembly, the only true son of God the Father - Jesus the Nazarene." And "the angels are to treat humans as they do God's firstborn."
I believe it fails to give Jesus the glory found in Revelation (Rev 1:9-18) (Rev 19:11-16) and I feel it lacks the majesty and sanctity of the true Heaven of Revelation.
It strays into the impossible realm of human warfare in both Heaven and Hell, complete with weapons and killing, explosions, atomic bombs, and rubble and all the hallmarks of a normal war along with space travel, worm holes and high tech gadgets. Meanwhile God and Jesus sit back and agree with Satan not to interfere. God is basically held hostage in the Holy Place along with any humans who seek refuge with him, until those humans get angry enough to rise up and fight. Heaven it seems, is not a safe place for angels or humans and God is pretty weak and without discernment.
Again the Holy Spirit is reduced to something that powers spacecraft.
"At some point he would have to switch to internal power - the temporal capacitors. In essence, it was the power of God's Holy Spirit captured in a high energy containment field." end quote.
Can the Holy Spirit be captured and contained? That the Holy Spirit is reduced to a power source, and not truly God, co-equal with the Father and the Son, continues to concern me deeply.
I cannot seriously recommend this book because at the core of the Tears of Heaven series, the Holy Spirit is just raw power and Jesus a created being. If as a Christian this would bother you, then don't read it. If it doesn't or you want to check it out, go ahead. It is a good read, even though I don't agree with the theology at all. Missing in this series is the worship of Jesus. If Jesus is not worshiped, then who is the Jesus of this Series? Not mine. Not the bible's that's for sure and that really matters.

5.0 out of 5 stars The War in Heaven 27 Feb. 2010
By S. Augustine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kenneth Zeigler captivates the reader with a story of war between good and evil. He paints graphic pictures of the torments of hell and the struggle between freedom and captivity. If you like suspenseful Christian fiction you will enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tears of Heaven Series will change your life!!! 31 Jan. 2012
By William A. Fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The War In Heaven is a must read. I honestly could not put the book down. Kenneth Zeigler's Tears of Heaven series has been the best read I have had in a long time. It has been awhile now since I have read the series, and still to this day the characters from the series are very vivid in my mind. Now when I think of heaven, and wonder what my mother is doing, I have a good idea of what she might be up to. I truly believe that God has given Mr. Zeigler an amazing gift and a vision of what heaven and hell is truly like. If you haven't read any of the series I would truly suggest that you start with the book, Heaven and Hell the first in the series and let the adventure begin. There were moments that I was truly stunned by what was happening, yet I did not ever think it could be untrue, and then there were times when our Lord Jesus came onto the scene that I was truly undone, and I wept and wept. I don't think I have ever been so moved by a book or a series of books in my life. I cannot hardly wait for the next book in the series to come out. Please read the series, and then suggest it to everyone!!!
