Even as a committed follower of Jesus it is so easy to loose sight of heaven during our day to day experience on earth. Dr. Lutzer focuses on what God has revealed in scripture to comfort His children about the reality of heaven and likewise the reality of what awaits those who have rejected God's provision for sin. He brings it all together at the end of the book with a call to repentence and acceptance of Jesus. This book was a great encouragement to me and is a great evangelistic tool. Praise be to God for His teachers. FIVE STARS
I have given at least 15 of these books to friends & family. It makes heaven so REAL. I was told by a lady who'd lost her husband, that second to the Bible this book did her more good than anything else. I've read it 3 times, not counting the times I just look up particular things. I shared it w/my husband about 4 months before his passing...it is so "uplifting" that it made us both feel better.I have 2 favorite lines: #1 While you're at the funeral home looking into the face of your loved one, he has already looked into the face of Jesus.#2 "Certainly dear widow, your husband who is heaven, continues to love you as he did on earth but w/a fonder, sweeter, purer love. A love purified by God".I would recommend this book to anyone & everyone!
Great book, scripture and events in the bible to back it up. We used it in our sunday school class. Explains a lot of questions you have about death. I am so glad and thankful to be a child of God and know where I am going!
