Review by Diane Busch
This book is really an exhaustive research project on all biblical references to heaven. The author does a good job of pointing out the false thoughts and statements about heaven that permeate society, some of which have been around for a long time. He also paints heaven in such a great way, helping the reader to realize what an amazingly beautiful and wonderful place it will be. He also teaches how our life here on earth (for those who put their trust in Christ) is preparation for our eternity in heaven. Reading this book really helps the Christ follower get excited for eternity. It also may help those who have not yet put their faith in Christ, to learn more about that, so that they too will be able to spend their eternity in the unbelievably wonderful heaven God is creating.
This book is 475 pages long, so for some people, listening to the audiobook is a good alternative.
