In this sequel to Heaven, How I got Here, Colin S. Smith masterfully retells the gospel story from the perspective of Judas Iscariot.
Judas, who betrayed Jesus, and Peter, who denied Jesus, both hit a low point in their lives when it looked as if they were done with Jesus forever. Yet these men responded in very different ways. Judas separated from the other disciples and gave up on faith in Christ completely. Peter chose a different and a better path.


Written with pastoral warmth, a biblically-shaped imagination, and a solemn awareness of the eternal torment of hell ... -Jonathan Prime, Pastoral Ministries Director, Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches

Smith gives hope for recovery ... he answers the deep questions ... All in the mouth of Judas, the one who eternally regretted giving up Jesus. -Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Chair, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois

Of all human beings, none passed so close to the gates of heaven on his way to hell than Judas Iscariot. His story, expertly told here by Colin Smith, is an urgent cautionary tale for each one of us. -Tim Challies, Blogger at

Creative, insightful and deeply, deeply challenging, Heaven, So Near - So Far is a page-turning must read. -Steve Brady, Senior Minister, First Baptist Church, Grand Cayman
