I found this little treasure among my mother's things. If she had read it before her passing, I know it would have brought her much comfort, and indeed a longing to go to her true home. So glad I read it!
I really enjoyed this book. Randy Alcorn answers a lot of questions about heaven based on scripture. It's a shorter version of his longer book, Heaven. It's encouraging and challenging!
This book is a must read!I loved this book from beginning to end. I started reading it after my husband died. I had never thought much about heaven before he left to go. Now, I needed to know everything about it. It was where I most wanted to be, but I knew very little about it. I became enthralled by chapter five. I think I've read that chapter at least 5 times. The beauty of heaven became so real there, as I looked up all the scriptures. I'd read these descriptions before, but this time I coul...
I snatched this up because my bible has an excerpt from Randy Alcorn in the book of Revelation and I was ENTHRALLED with his words. I always thought we'd bounce around on clouds like cosmic Care Bears in Heaven, strumming harps, and obediently worshipping God for all of eternity (which sounds honestly really dull). Imagining the new heaven and the new earth and Jesus going to prepare a place for us, along with rewards for how we lived our lives ... it was all very inspiring and definitely change...
This is a wonderful little book! I've read a couple of works by Randy Alcorn on Heaven and loved them all. In spite of all of them being on Heaven, there are differences in each that adds to my knowledge and understanding. His books are very Biblical and full of truth that few people are aware of - even Christians. This book is a gem, brimming with hope and excitement and joy! There's an old song that says, "This world is not my home, I'm just a passing through..." This book cements that truth a...
I will read this book over and over and over again. We were created for so much more! This is not our home, it’s only the training ground.This book was given to me just after my husband unexpectedly passed away, leaving me with 3 teens. I never got mad at God, and I’ve leaned into his faithfulness every single day. I have become obsessed with understanding more about heaven. I know I’ll see my husband again one day, but boy am I’m excited to have read this book before I see him. I’ve got lots of...
InspiringChristians and nonchristians alike should read this book! Randy uses the truth of Scripture to explain the many facets of heaven and why we should not be afraid of death. This is a book to be digested, a thinker’s text, a great reference. There are a plethora of thought-provoking questions that one needs to settle for himself as he reads. Would also be a great basis for a Bible study or Church School class. Can’t wait to read more from this author!
Very thought provoking and goodThis book is must reading for all who would call themselves followers of Christ and those who are seeking Him. This book gives a different perspective of heaven. It's use of scripture backs up the message of this book. It can change your outlook on this life and the next. I definitely recommend you read this.
Truth be told...So much to think about, then so much to do. This book truly opened my eyes, Randy Alcorn doesn't candy coat the truth, He tells it like it is so we will have our "second chance" here on earth to store up our Treasures in Heaven!!! Thank you, Randy!!!
Don’t miss out vRandy makes Heaven as our ultimate dwelling so excited and appealing that we can hardly wait to arrive. He stresses how important it is to lay aside every weight and the sins that hinder us as we lay up our treasures there
I need a book like this to keep an eternal perspective before me at all times. This world is not my real home.
Inspiring Wonderful perspective on life and heaven. Comforting for those who have lost loved ones who are Christians. Ready to read.
Heaven What a wonderful way to describe Heaven. Thank You needed to read this at this time in my life. Looking forward to Heaven
Wonderful, encouraging read as to what awaits us in heaven as we journey here on earth to heaven. He uses Bible verses, chapters for his focus.
Another excellent Randy Alcorn book, although it dragged on sometimes on certain topics. Wasn't too fond of how Alcorn kept...talking about his own books.
Wonderful pictures of heaven that can encourage, uplift, and inspire all seekers.
The best book about Heaven -- as well as how our lives here on earth impact our eternal life -- I've read!
Great quick read, on keeping your heart and mind set on heaven. I loved Alcorn's fictional portrayals of heven in his novels. This book briefly touched on the topics and questions about heaven.
A delightful encouragement of heart, soul and mind! Giving us a clearer picture of all that God HAS told us about heaven in His Word, Alcorn draws us closer to Jesus in love, gratitude and hope, for ourselves and our loved ones. I will reread this, probably a few times. One critic complained about the many quotes from his own previous books; this was not a problem for me as I felt they were much like verbal "illustrations" inserted to clarify his points. He is the first to admonish all who read
It's hard to decide how to rate this book. The first 3/4 get one star. This is because it is almost all excerpts from other books he's written. If I wanted to read those books, I would've read them. The last quarter of the book I found helpful. He isn't quoting other books ... he's writing his own stuff. But the majority of the book I felt was a waste of time.I only finished this book because I dislike not finishing books. I'm glad I did because the last few chapters were the best part of the bo...
What a great book! It' well-written and very brief about a heavy subject such as eternity. It has helped me to see beyond what I could see, which is the world to come. And I think every Christian should read a kind of book like this one.
Excellent book...Portrays heaven using Biblical imagination! Thoroughly enjoyed reading it (though at times some concepts can seem like speculation - I still wish and hope much of it is true). Nonetheless, an uplifting read and highly recommended!
Very rich with scripture and full of different view points on what we know as "eternity". I really enjoyed this book.
An interesting, Biblical discussion of eternity and heaven.
This book changed my perspective on heaven. I was taught spirits floating and praising God. This book tells us that there will be a life there and not just floating spirits.
Excellent book. It has a way of capturing your mind and transporting you into this book's vision of heaven.
I was given this book when our son was killed. Alcorn expands your views of heaven.
Great book! Lots of good insight and explanations with Bible verses to prove his points. Very informative and easy to read. Enjoyable and thought provoking!
I would recommend this to anyone!
Best little book on heaven I have ever read! Love Randy's insights and that he backs it all up with scripture...actually excites you about going to heaven!!
