This is the best book about Heaven I have ever read. I found out more than I have heard from 45 years of Bible preaching. I lost my wife of 54 years in 2013 and had some concerns about our relationship in Heaven, Alcorn gave me much assurance from his book, that she will be my sweetheart for evermore!
It is a shame that Christians can not get much about Heaven in preaching today. Sure I know it is all about winning souls, but assuring those souls after salvation I believe is as much importance.
Also most of the Christians today have no concern about Heaven, their minds are on the here and now. Which I did most of my life.
If we would have our minds more on Heaven things here on earth would be less stressful.
Sorry for the preaching, I am just a sinner saved by Grace.
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!
