MARIETTA — Nelson Price, a long-time columnist at the Marietta Daily Journal, released a new book electronically on May 15. Price is pastor emeritus of Roswell Street Baptist Church in Marietta. Price retired in April 2000 after leading the church for 35 years.

Price said his book, titled “Heaven,” attempts to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding common perceptions of the afterlife.

“Heaven is a mystery encapsulated in an enigma encased in a conundrum,” he said. “I wanted to address some of the issues.”

The 20th in a long line of faith-based books (and one novel), “Heaven” is the first of Price’s tomes to make its debut electronically. Others, such as “Farewell to Fear” and “Prayer: Closet Power,” were initially published in traditional print but will appear as e-books in coming months.

Price said he saw widespread interest in the issue of heaven and decided to dig deeper.

“Heaven has been a popular topic recently in secular movies, novels, social media,” he said.

“One specific question I wanted to address relates to the topic of whether a person really can visit heaven and return.”

Although Price said he penned the work in just four months, he has been fascinated with the subject all his life.

“Hopefully the book will inspire and inform,” he said.

Price has written a weekly column in the Marietta Daily Journal for 46 years. “Heaven” is available for $5.55 on Amazon.com and through Kindle, Smashwords and NOOK.
