Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.

From the Inside Flap

Have you ever wondered . . .

What is Heaven really going to be like?
What will we look like?
What will we do every day?
Won't Heaven get boring after a while?

We all have questions about what Heaven will be like, and after twenty-five years of extensive research, Dr. Randy Alcorn has the answers.

In the most comprehensive and definitive book on Heaven to date, Randy invites you to picture Heaven the way Scripture describes it-a bright, vibrant, and physical New Earth, free from sin, suffering, and death, and brimming with Christ's presence, wondrous natural beauty, and the richness of human culture as God intended it.

God has put eternity in our hearts. Now, Randy Alcorn brings eternity to light in a way that will surprise you, spark your imagination, and change how you live today.

If you've always thought of Heaven as a realm of disembodied spirits, clouds, and eternal harp strumming, you're in for a wonderful surprise.

This is a book about real people with real bodies enjoying close relationships with God and each other, eating, drinking, working, playing, traveling, worshiping, and discovering on a New Earth. Earth as God created it. Earth as he intended it to be.

And the next time you hear someone say, "We can't begin to imagine what Heaven will be like," you will be able to tell them, ""I can.""

Format: Paperback
As a Christian I have always believed I would go to heaven when this life is over. However after reading Randy Alcorn's book I look forward to it with a new anticipation. The author bases his understanding of Heaven clearly from scripture and when it is only his own assumption he states that and gives reasons for his ideas. Jesus taught that what God has prepared for His family is beyond imagining and clearly we will do more than 'sit on clouds and play harps'. How boring!! The experience Alcorn describes is anything but boring. Take the book slowly and savor the contents. Enjoy.

The book is wonderful! The second hand book was a blessing! The book was in a-1 shape-the only way we knew that it was second hand-was the message on the inside written by a loving wife to her husband. He must have been termianally ill & she wanted to lead him to heaven. He must have passed & the belongings were given away. What a blessing to have recieved a God given message.

Maybe all 2nd hand books may not be in good shape. I have ordered 2 more for friends-will let you know how that turns out.
Also the price went up-not happy about that.

This is a good book, has a good theme which will interest many, but to me, much of it seems to be repetitive and too wordy. It does shed new light on the subject of heaven and it answers many questions about what it will be like, and some portions of the Scriptures which mystified many, are clarified and make sense to me.

Alcorn lets his imagination go with this topic, however, his use of Scripture to back up his ideas certainly carries the reader along on the journey of discovery of just what is in store for us in heaven. The book is a long read - but, the reader who completes it will not be disappointed and will certainly be inspired and have spirits lifted by what he learns. A very logical and complete presentation.

Reading this book as recommended by trusted friends, has filled in several gaps and has deepened my amazement at the prospects which lie before everyone who puts his/her faith in Jesus. Especially, that Jesus himself wanted us to have a lively anticipation of living with him in his glory by meditating on the words he left us. Randy Alcorn is both bold and balanced in his interpretations.

I have read this book twice and will read it again most likely through the coming years. I am now leading a book study at church. I feel that Randy has been honest and sincere in his writings, and has used many Scripture passages to support all that he shares. I have shared this book with anyone that God has impressed on me to do so. It has opened a whole new attitude about Heaven!

A scriptural-based book that encourages readers to meditate daily on what our eternity with God may be like. Causes readers to see how, in the every day on earth, we are indeed getting glimpses of our eternal life with Christ for much of what we experience on earth will be a part of eternity, yet will be perfectly restored and redeemed as was the garden of Eden before the fall.
