By the time you finish reading this book, you will have a biblical basis for envisioning the eternal Heaven. You will understand that in order to get a picture of Heaven…you don’t need to look up at the clouds; you simply need to look around you and imagine what all this would be like without sin and death and suffering and corruption.
pg. 17, Heaven by Randy Alcorn
How do you picture Heaven?
According to Randy Alcorn’s wonderful book, I’m not alone in the way I used to answer that question. People describe Heaven as a wonderful place where we have nothing to do but worship at the feet of our Lord. This conjures up an image of, as the book puts it, “an unending church service.”
Sound exciting? Maybe…for a little while. But face it; even the most dynamic church service gets wearing if it goes on too long.
If that’s your idea of Heaven, you’re not alone. But this book provides Biblical support for much more than that. The Bible promises those of us who have accepted Jesus as our savior an eternity that’s richer than we can even imagine.
Each chapter addresses a specific question about our eternal home, such as:
Are you looking forward to Heaven?
Can you know you’re going to Heaven?
What will it mean to see God?
Will we be ourselves?
Will Heaven ever be boring?
Will our dreams be fulfilled and missed opportunities regained?
Will animals, including our pets, live again?
That’s just a small sample of the questions Alcorn gives well-researched, Bible-based answers to.
As a pastor with a bachelor of theology and a master of arts in biblical studies, Alcorn is highly qualified to write on the topic of Heaven. He makes it clear from the beginning of the book that it is true to Scripture. You can trust that this book is as accurate a work as one might hope to find on this topic. And it’s an important subject. After all, if you intend to reside in Heaven one day, don’t you want to know as much about your final destination as you possibly can? I know I do! And after reading this book, I’m more at peace and more hopeful than ever before.
