My good friend recommended this book. She said it was very encouraging and enlightening. I enjoyed reading the book, and it has given me a lot to think about and to hope for. A lot of what Mr. Alcorn suggests makes sense to me.
I have both of these books and from what i have read so far they're excellent. I bought the big book from Christian Book and received the small book as a gift. Great gift. I would advise anyone to purchase this book.
You'd think it would be easy to find a biblical book on heaven and I had the hardest time finding one that was truly based on the bible. John Macarthur does have one and it is biblical, but Randy's went into more detail. And Randy was very careful to not say "This is how it will be." He would give you the closest he could find what the Bible says about heaven and you could make your own decision. I really tried hard to find something unbiblical about this book and I could only find a teeny tiny small detail that I thought might be far fetched. After a year long study in this book it changed my Christian life and can't wait for eternal life. I highly recommend every Christian read this book.
"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.
