I have been giving this book away for years now, and can attest to it's value as an evangelistic tool. For someone searching or considering eternity, this easy reading book presents many contemporary views on passing into the "next life"...then Dr. Lutzer takes the reader back to scripture for God's truth. He presents the material in easy to understand language.
If you share the gospel with someone who isn't ready to repent and trust Christ, this makes a great tool to put in their hands which will keep them confronted with eternity. If they do trust Christ, it makes a great evangelist tool for THEM to reach their friends and family.
I buy these by the case (68 copies), and for not much more than the price of a gospel tract. All believers should fervently wish to obey the last command of Jesus whilst he was still on the earth (preach the gospel), and we are hard pressed to find a better evangelistic tool than this little gem. Ideal for either group or personal outreach, this is a great investment in eternity.
Thank you Christianbook.com for providing this wonderful resource at such an affordable price!
I read Randy Alcorn's book "Heaven" which was an excellent overall book on heaven and I highly recommend it! However, shortly after I finished Randy's book, I found this book by Dr. Lutzer. It was marvelous! The book is 1/5 the size of "Heaven" and wasn't quite as in-depth but the overview of both heaven and hell was excellent. Very easy to read with thought provoking remarks. He backs his view with many scripture references and is thorough in his analysis. The church does not focus enough on Hell and its ramifications. Other than to bring God glory and to enjoy Him forever, escaping the torment of Hell is precisely why Christ died and was raised for us! We all too often forget this and for this reason the reality of Hell MUST be brought to the forefront again!
