It is all for the Glory of God alone that I wholeheartedly endorsed the first two Christian books, Barrio Walk: Stepping Into Wisdom and Broken Walk: Searching For Wisdom written by Ruben Gonzales. This book, Golden Walk: Following Wisdom Into Heaven completes what Ruben calls the Walking In Wisdom Series. God has had His Hand on him as the three books have been published in the past three consecutive years. Mr. Gonzales has found a need and is filling it through his writing. He fully understands that many raised like him are not privileged to hear the entire Gospel. He wants others to see the full Bread of Life scriptures he did not receive until mid-life.


As Children of the King, we must do all we can to help each other on this earthly walk as we follow Jesus into Heaven, “Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord.” Psalms 89:15  I am so proud of Ruben as he has demonstrated his conviction to share the Good News. He uses a blend of life experiences, humor, and well-placed scriptures throughout his books. We share a mutual love for our Lord knowing He is the One that keeps our steps steady and sure.


His main purpose for writing Golden Walk is to provide others with scriptures and Biblical stories that were not disclosed to him until age 47. His father did not accept Christ as Lord until age 78 about two months before his death. For the remainder of his life, Ruben vows to tell everyone he can about how Jesus Christ changed his life. There are many lessons in Golden Walk; you’ll enjoy reading No Blueberries in the Barrio.


Golden Walk: Following Wisdom Into Heaven is divided into three parts. Part one, Get Ready will help people understand how it is imperative to receive salvation. It includes teachings on forgiveness and repentance. The second part, Get Set talks about what to do after receiving salvation; this includes, reading the Bible, witnessing, and baptism. The third part Let’s Go gives insight on what we can expect when we reach Heaven. The reader is offered hope and excitement about our transition into eternity. This book provides a roadmap built on Golden Steps to encourage readers and increase faith.


Mr. Gonzales grew up in the barrios of Phoenix Arizona and East Los Angeles. He spent two years in a seminary in Compton California. He is a Vietnam veteran who struggled with alcohol for 30 years. Although he had success while working 39 years at the U.S. Postal Service, he has experienced the darkness of being separated from the Truth. Ruben also cherishes the Joy that comes from accepting Christ and having a new song placed in his heart. He understands the purpose for the remainder of his life is to do God’s work by the writing and speaking of His Goodness. – Everything we do is all for the Glory of God alone.


“May the God of Hope fill you with all Joy and Peace as you trust in Him.” Romans 15:13  Until we meet in Heaven . . . Find a Need and Fill It. I love you!

Endorsements for Golden Walk

Once in a good while comes to us a book that we simply cannot put down when we start to read it. I remember the slogan “Inquiring minds want to know”; well, who doesn’t have an inquiring mind, especially when it comes to the subject of heaven. No matter where you have been to on this great planet of ours, heaven defies every conceivable thought we might have of its beauty.


Every question you could possibly have about heaven has an answer in this book as Ruben helps you navigate through it all. My questions that I hadn’t even thought about asking are covered, and of course the trend of “wisdom” in this, his third, book follows right along the same path.


Remember, we are talking about eternity here. This means that we will have all the time in the…I was going to say “world,” all the time, period, to talk to the saints of old; our relatives and friends will all have a story of how they got there.


Follow along page after page as heaven is brought to you in full color and in 3D, 4D, I don’t know, surely many dimensions. One thing is for sure, you will never be so glad that you accepted Jesus than after you finish reading this book. If you have never asked Jesus in your heart, you will certainly want to as He not only gives us an awesome life here but he also offers a great retirement plan that is “out of this world.”

Golden Walk: Following Wisdom into Heaven, is the third book of award winning Christian author Ruben Gonzales’ series on Walking in Wisdom.

A hallmark of Mr. Gonzales’s style is telling engaging stories interwoven with timely, powerful scriptures and spiritual truths and this book follows richly in that fashion.

As the third book in a series of three, this book is set into three parts: Get Ready, Get Set, and Let’s Go. These sections lead the reader through receiving salvation through Jesus Christ, what comes next after salvation, and finally, what Heaven is really like. (Hint: we’re not going to be resting on clouds.) It’s more beautiful and glorious than we’ve ever imagined.

Mr. Gonzales is a gifted storyteller and wordsmith, and you will enjoy his engaging vignettes of family life. He draws readers into his stories in such a way that you feel like you are part of his family. But he doesn’t write to receive acclaim for himself. He writes to tell as many people as he can how to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior and enter into a life that will be eternal.

Is Heaven a question for you or for a loved one? This book will give you sound, Biblical answers. Our unpredictable times are the evidence of the groans and labor pangs of creation Romans 8:22 speaks of. Time is growing shorter and circumstances are becoming more desperate for people who do not know the truth of Jesus Christ.

This book is a gift to yourself, to loved ones, friends and neighbors. Don’t hesitate. Buy it for yourself and gift a copy to a loved one while you’re at it. It is a fountain of hope and truth in a world gone mad.
