Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We all have questions about what heaven will be like. Randy Alcorn helps answer some of these questions by sharing from his extensive research on the topic--all from a biblical perspective. His writing will surprise readers and stretch their thinking beyond anything they've imagined heaven to be like. "Heaven will help readers strive for eternity while they're living on earth.

Review:

"According to Alcorn (The Treasure Principle; Deadline; Safely Home), the subject of heaven rates as one of the least accurately discussed subjects in the whole of Christendom. Even seminarians fail to give appropriate time and attention to heaven as described throughout the Bible because other themes take pre-eminence both chronologically and preferentially. Alcorn is likewise astounded that the majority of Christians who do take time to consider heaven often possess faulty, nonbiblical assumptions, one of the most common being the misconception of heaven as a place of unending church services. The author, who is also the founder of the nonprofit organization Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM), has spent years studying what the Bible says about heaven, and in this compelling and comprehensive resource, he offers every conceivable question about heaven, or the 'New Earth,' as a Christian believer's ultimate destination. Alcorn answers the expected queries on heavenly life as well as quirkier ones: will Christians drink coffee in heaven? Will there be homeownership, and what about sex? Will our pets be in heaven? Evangelical scholars and laypersons alike will appreciate Alcorn's expansive — though perhaps long-winded — musings on this neglected subject, a real boon in a time when many people are eager to understand what happens after death. Forecast: Tyndale is committing $80,000 to promote this title, which will certainly be a CBA bestseller and perhaps a crossover hit." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

I loved this book. Reading it answers so many questions and there are bible references from which every answer is derived. If it is just opinion it is so stated. This book leads you to imagine what Heaven will be like and it will suprise you. Not at all what most people think!
