Everybody has one. It’s called a "haunt detector." It’s the little alarm that goes off in our heads whenever we detect that something mysterious or supernatural has occurred. You could be sitting around relaxing one day at home, and for no special reason you start thinking about someone. Maybe you haven’t thought about this person in years. Then the phone rings; you pick it up, and amazingly, it’s that person! Many of us have experienced this phenomenon.
What is it?
Anthony DeStefano answers this compelling question in his fascinating new book, The Invisible World. No matter how little we may understand or how fleeting such moments can be, he explains the reality of the spiritual dimension that surrounds us and shows how it is immediately accessible to everyone. All aspects of the spiritual realm are discussed, including the existence of angels and demons, the whereabouts of loved ones who have passed, and even the presence and activity of God in our lives. Written to be completely consistent with traditional Christian teaching, The Invisible World will help readers embrace a certitude that makes it easier to act according to their moral beliefs, give them a greater sense of the richness of life, and show them that no amount of suffering in their life—physical, mental, or emotional—will ever be able to destroy the profound sense of inner peace that can be experienced on a daily basis.
For those seeking reassurance about meaning in their life, nothing is more significant than to be reminded that no one is alone. In The Invisible World, Anthony DeStefano shows the truth of this in a captivating and inspiring way.
I may not always agree with Anthony DeStefano, but there is no doubt he is a highly intelligent and witty writer; and assuming the existence of an invisible world, he has produced a very interesting and thought-provoking book about spirituality.

Anthony DeStefano brings to life "the hidden world God has created for us," a world that surrounds us but is difficult for even the most convinced Christian to get in touch with, much less the seeker or non-believer. And he does this in a more vivid and realistic way than I would have thought possible. Angels, devils, and grace? DeStefano makes them almost visible. This is a wonderful, compelling book, completely consistent with traditional Christian teaching and common sense -- and very, very readable.

Sadly, many people today are so materialistic in their thinking that they’ve forgotten that the most important things in life are unseen and spiritual. Love, honor, compassion, forgiveness, hope—All of these are invisible. Finally, there is a book that makes the whole invisible spiritual world come to life in the most extraordinary and vivid way. Anthony DeStefano’s words will inspire even the most hardened and materialistic cynic to begin exploring a richer, fuller life based on faith on a God who is so good.
