"Heaven," by Randy Alcorn, is the best resource I have found that describes Heaven and what we can look forward to. This book gave me a greater desire to share God's promises of everlasting life in the place that He has prepared for all who have accepted and put their trust in His Word. It's a wonderful resource for those who minister to the elderly.
I lead a women's growth group and we've been reading Heaven by Randy Alcorn. We are only about halfway through and as a group we have decided to stop and do something else. We have all learned something from the study. But concepts that could have been covered in a paragraph go on for 3 or 4 chapters. I found the book very long-winded and some ideas somewhat "out there".
I had purchased Randy Alcorn's book Heaven several years ago in book and cd form. I purchased it this time to help answer questions a senior couple in our Country Church had brought up. I wanted them to have a Biblical work that was well referenced and Randy's book filled the bill.
This book by Randy Alcorn is awesome. It quotes scripture (that means everything to me) and makes me even more homesick than I already was. It is so comforting to know where my soul will be when I am at last called home and get to see my God - my Father - my Creator face-to-face.
