Heaven isn t just a dream; it s a promise
For far too long, we ve talked about heaven as if it were a dream or someplace that only exists in fairy tales. We want to believe it s real, but with such an expanse of contradictory information, it s difficult to know what to believe.
To add even more confusion, we are left to sift through the tales of individuals who say they have crossed over and returned. With so many competing narratives and accounts based on what many think are beyond-death experiences, wouldn t it be nice to have a straightforward examination of what the Bible says about heaven?
Best-selling author and New Testament scholar Scot McKnight thought so too, which is why years of research have come to fruition in The Heaven Promise. It represents the perfect blend of thoughtful investigation coupled with an easily digestible presentation.
My hope, McKnight shares, is that people will be hopeful about heaven.
Now with a convenient discussion guide, The Heaven Promise offers an infusion of hope alongside a healthy anticipation of eternity.
After all, heaven isn t just a dream; it s a promise."
Heaven. Eternity. The Afterlife.
When you mention any of these concepts, people of all ages and from all walks of life are certain to have opinions. How can we know for sure what heaven will be like?
According to New Testament scholar and popular author Scot McKnight, all we need to do is turn to Scripture to answer our questions. McKnight helps you examine God's Word in order to discover what awaits you on the other side of the grave and find answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding heaven, including:
1. What about Near Death Experiences?
2. What about Rewards in Heaven?
3. Who Will Be in Heaven?
4. Is God Fair?
5. Will There Be Families in Heaven?
6. What about Children Who Die?
7. What about Cremation?
8. What about Purgatory?
9. Will There Be Pets in Heaven?
10. Why Believe in Heaven?
Heaven isn't the construction of a fairy tale or some mystical narrative. It's very real; it's very good; and it's very much the fulfillment of God's promise to you.
