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.

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.

    We ordered this book for our Senior Adult Bible Study. They are loving it. Some even bought extra copies to give as Christmas gifts.

    This review was written for Heaven.
    I haven't finished this book yet, but am very satisfied at what I've read so far. I was concerned going into it after reading someone else's review saying that this may be something like a false gospel (can't remember her exact wording but it was something like that). Well, I like how Randy made it very, very clear that he could be wrong about some things, and that you could contact him if you had Biblical evidence for a reason he was wrong. He also makes it clear that the Bible is the Word of God.

    That being said, I'm learning SO much about Heaven! The study guide is great too! Please, do yourself a favor and don't hesitate to buy a copy for yourself....and a friend! :) It's important stuff!

    Randy is a great writer. The one fact alone for me to order it was that he had read 140 books in research. and to bring all the good parts listed in over 300 footnotes is impressive. I have ordered copies for most everyone in our congregation. would recommend it to every christian as encouragement to know more about where we all want to end up - in HEAVEN.

    This review was written for Heaven.
    As the author suggested, when planning a trip to an unknown place, it is wise to prepare ahead. Study that place. Think on it so that upon arrival, you'll feel comfortable. As a Christian, I plan on going to Heaven, and I appreciate the efforts the author employed to compile this tome.

    In addition to many verses from the Bible, Alcorn used his extensive collection of material for his opinions. Although it is an intimidating work with 535 pages, I must say, it's worth the read. (I read a chapter or two each day until finished. It might serve well for a group study.)

    The one caveat I have is the repetition. It should have been edited more carefully.
