Product Description

As the years pass and we watch more and more of our family, friends and mentors pass away, it is only natural to ask questions about heaven. However, our understanding of heaven is often limited to a few half-forgotten Sunday school lessons and the insubstantial images provided by popular movies and T.V. Fortunately, in Heaven Randy Alcorn provides us with a thoroughly researched and biblically definitive description of heaven. As Alcorn addresses our most serious questions about heaven, including the nature of judgment, and answers a few of our less serious questions as well, including the accessibility of cafe mochas the sweet by and by, we will develop a deeper understanding of our eternal destination and will find the courage to strive for heaven while we're living on earth.

Publisher's Description

What will heaven be like? Randy Alcorn presents a thoroughly biblical answer, based on years of careful study, presented in an engaging, reader-friendly style. His conclusions will surprise readers and stretch their thinking about this important subject. Heaven will inspire readers to long for heaven while they're living on earth.

Library Journal

The last decade saw a growing number of "life after life"-themed books entering the marketplace, each trying to provide a glimpse into the next world. This one is destined to hold a unique place among those titles. Drawing on sound biblical and historical fact, noted Christian writer and speaker Alcorn tries to correct some of the popular myths generated by the mass media. Part 1 is certainly the more substantive section, for here the author skillfully establishes complex theological foundations in accessible language with wonderfully illustrative stories. Part 2 may be more interesting as it addresses such popular questions as what the resurrected Earth will be like, what our bodies will look like, what will happen to our pets, and what will occupy our time in heaven. However, the book is most effective when read consecutively, for the theological background in Part 1 is essential to understanding Alcorn's conclusions in Part 2. Although Alcorn is writing for popular consumption, the detailed notes and select bibliography will satisfy more scholarly interests. Recommended for larger public libraries.-John-Leonard Berg, Univ. of Wisconsin Lib., Platteville Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Publisher's 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. (Oct.) Forecast: Tyndale is committing $80,000 to promote this title, which will certainly be a CBA bestseller and perhaps a crossover hit. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    I was greatly blessed by this book and my anticipation of our life in Christ after this present world was challenged and stirred to greater expectations. It gives you a 'solid' feel for the 'afterlife'. This will challenge your heart and expectations in the greatness of our salvation in Christ.

    This review was written for Heaven - eBook.
    I had heard a lot about this book, and was hoping it would teach me more about what the Bible says about heaven.

    Randy Alcorn began the book by stating some of the things many believe about heaven and hell. Then, he explains that heaven and hell are real, physical places, and that they are our eternal destinations, and that the default for all of us, until we come to faith in Christ, is hell.

    Which is all scripturally based.

    Then, he begins to introduce other ideas. Revelation 21:1-3 says that there is a new heaven, and a new earth, and the new Jerusalem comes down out of heaven. Alcorn, however, states that heaven is actually where God is, and that the new earth will be the new heaven (p. 45 of the hardcover).

    While John calls this the new heaven and new earth (again, Rev. 21:1-3), Alcorn states that it is actually the old earth, restored. While John called it a new earth, it's not really a new earth at all. 'So will the earth we know come to an end? Yes. To a final end? No.' (p. 90-91 hardcover). This is also in contrast to 2 Peter 3:10, But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.

    The elements will be destroyed, but somehow, they will be then renewed. While I don't argue with God's ability to do this, it isn't a biblical idea. Just an imaginative one.

    On p. 103 of the hardcover, he states, As God and man will be forever united in Jesus, so Heaven and Earth will for-ever be united in the new physical universe where we will live as resurrected beings. To affirm anything less is to understate the redemptive work of Christ.

    So if you don't believe that the new heaven and the new earth are one, you are understating the redemptive work of Christ! It would be challenging to prove that from scripture.

    This type of thinking is the foundation for the book. It really isn't a biblical perspective on heaven. In fact, most of it relates not to heaven, but to his vision of the new earth, which is in his mind, is also the new heaven.

    Initially, I had hoped to write up my problems with the book, but by page 130 of the book, I had 11 pages of notes. If the book was biblically based, that shouldn't happen.

    If you buy this book, look up the verses referenced, and others. Look at the verses, separate from the book. Ask God if they really mean what Randy believes they mean. Study of the Bible should help us better understand God and truth, it shouldn't lead to mere conjecture. And this book is based significantly on conjecture.

    This time I bought this book as another gift. I was so impressed with Heaven that I have purchased it several times as a gift for people who are grieving over the passing of a loved one. It is filled with accurate Scripture and is very calming to read as we find out what it is like where our loved one is now and where we will spend eternity if Jesus is our Savior. This book was originally recommended to me by a pastor friend.
