I find the book to be very inspirational. The depth in which Spurgeon takes us into the personality of God is amazing, especially since it was written over a hundred years ago. It gives me a greater understanding of the love my God has for me and all upon this earth, and a heightened desire to share my faith with others. Alcorn's commentary also adds to this appreciation and desire. It is on the Christmas list for many of my friends.
This very well written book will make you homesick for the place God has prepared especially for YOU. Well done and great reading. Give it a try, you will not regret purchasing this small gem of a book. Highly recommended.
Any thing by Spurgeon is great to read and will make you think about your future with God. Loved it!
Great book! We have just finished reading and have been blessed and more anxious to see our Saviour. I'm sure sometime during eternity I will be able to have some time (?) with Bro. Spurgeon and thank him for the many hours his writings have blessed us during our devotional times.
This is an an excellent blending of the seemingless timeless thoughts of Charles Spurgeon with the more recent study and writings of Randy Alcorn. A very comforting devotional book - especially for those of us who have had a loved one go home before us and are now considering what they are experiencing and looking forward to our reunion with them for eternity.
No author in history has more material in print than Charles Spurgeon. During his lifetime, Spurgeon and his writings affected the world far and wide. Today, nearly 120 years after his death, countless people continue to have a passion for this London preacher, and more and more discover him every day. Some of Spurgeon's most powerful sermons were those that he preached on the topic of Heaven. Up until now, however, very few of these sermons have been accessible to a mass audience. In what is sure to become an instant classic, best-selling author Randy Alcorn has compiled the most profound spiritual insights on the topic of eternity from these sermons and arranged them into an easily-accessible, highly inspirational devotional format complete with his own comments and devotional thoughts. Whether you are familiar with the works of Charles Spurgeon or not, you are in for a treat, as Alcorn invites you to sit at the feet of the Prince of Preachers and discover timeless pearls of wisdom from one of the greatest theological minds of all time.

A good mix of Spurgeon & Alcorn. Charles Spurgeon was a man of God who knew the right things about his Savior. He wrote and said so many things that it was no small feat to settle on one topic. Eternity the joy Spurgeon entered into years ago and has probable found so many more wonderful things out about it that this book pales in comparison. The blend of Alcorn's insights he has gleaned from Spurgeon and the Bible are a blend that makes this a worthwhile read. This type of material is worth repeating with more Spurgeon and many other Godly men of the 1800's.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Tyndale House Publishers for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
