"The Best Possible World: A Search for the Nature of Heaven is a valuable gift for those seeking wider avenues leading to the divine. Kelly McCleary uses order, beauty and love to frame her reasoning for a God who seeks to be in relationship with us. She writes effectively and communicates clearly words of encouragement for those seeking a God who is active in the world. She does not dodge the difficult theological questions which often deter faith, but through her arguments and reasoning she continues to arrive at a place where God is present, active and loving. I highly recommend her book to those who are seeking and those who desire to renew their faith."?
— Steven Yoder, pastor, First Mennonite Church, Bluffton, Ohio
"I recommend The Best Possible World: A Search for the Nature of Heaven to anyone who has ever debated the relationship between religion and science. A compelling read that explores the connections of art, love, science and faith."?

"Kelly McCleary's book The Best Possible World: A Search for the Nature of Heaven is a thoughtful expression of Jesus's challenge [to human beings] to love God with all our heart, soul and mind. McCleary brings together an accountant's attention to detail, a scientist's questioning of nature, and a theologian's insight and curiosity about God as she explores the order, beauty and love of God. I would recommend this book to anyone who is searching for heaven without giving up an inch of intellectual integrity." ?
— Rev. Dr. Robert Erickson, pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Jefferson City, Missouri
"I read a lot and have never come across a book like this before. It challenged me, a non-believer, particularly the parts about space and the universe and how it all pulls together. It made me really think."
— Barry Mongan, Wayzata, Minn.
“It was an imminently readable book with its combination of science and faith. It certainly was a very satisfying read. I would highly recommend it.”
