I enjoyed this book and refer to it frequently. It has an immense amount of information about the subject, Heaven, and is well supported by biblical references. As important as this subject should be to Christians, seldom is it mentioned other than in passing. Yet it should be our great hope and encouragement. This book is written in layman's language and captures the reader's attention. It is difficult to put down. It is also a great reference work.

In his book, Randy Alcorn helps a Christian reflect on Biblical texts that detail Heaven. Scripture is used to paint the picture of Heaven and Scripture is used to base his conjectures.
I appreciated this and was glad to read a text on Heaven that wasn't soley based on a near death experience.
It's an easy book to read and I recommend reading it from front to back rather than choosing sections of personal interests.

Read this book for our church's bookclub and loved it! I then gave MY copy from bookclub to my niece and bought this one for myself!
Publishers Weekly, 2004-08-30 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. (Oct.) Forecast: Tyndale is committing $80,000 to promote this title, which will certainly be a CBA bestseller and perhaps a crossover hit. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
