Novelist and theological analyst Randy Alcorn has written extensively about heaven for both adults and young people. Now, in Tell Me About Heaven, he successfully makes theology about heaven something even children can understand. With the help of magnificent paintings by master artist Ron DiCianni, Alcorn creates a story about a young boy named Jake who comes to spend time with his grandfather just four months after the grandmother has died.
Jake is sad that his grandfather cannot cook as well as his grandmother, and he misses her voice, the attention she gave him, and her friendly smile. He confronts his grandfather, asking why his grandmother had to die. To his shock, the grandfather says that he misses his wife dearly, but he would not bring her back even if he could. This is because she is now in heaven with Jesus, suffering no ailments and having fun with her relatives and friends who passed before she did.
This prompts Jake to ask his grandfather where heaven is, what it is like, who is there, and what the "new heaven" will be like after saints' spirits are reunited with their bodies back on earth. In separate chapters, the grandfather (called Papa) discusses the Garden of Eden, Christ's birth on earth, Christ's conquering of the tomb, and even what it is like to make the transition from earth to heaven at the time of death. Everything is done in story form with lots of interactive dialogue between Papa and Jake as they go fishing, out walking with the family puppy, or just sit together at meals. Sometimes Jake reads from Papa's Bible, and other times Papa tells biblical stories or events from his life. The information is positive, affirming, non-threatening, yet completely solid scripturally.
This book can be read a chapter at a time over a week or more, or it can be read in one long session. The color paintings of angels (some of whom are African), historical figures such as Abe Lincoln, wild animals, and Jesus are detailed, elaborate, and powerfully graphic. They add a lot to the overall impact of the book's narrative. This is a book that will not become dated quickly. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Christian Book Previews.com

    A wonderful book, for young and old alike. Truly inspiring. I bought for my grandchildren, neighbor and one for myself. The pictures and text capture the comfort, peace, assurance and safety of "Going Home"

    Very helpful story to either read with a child, or let the older child read. Helps them process the death of a loved one by sharing the glories of Heaven in a story format.

    This book is a conversation between a young boy and his grandpa during the boy's first visit back to Grandpa after his grandmother's death, four months previously. Grandpa corrects the boy's misconceptions and misinformation from others about where Grandma is.My 97 year-old father just went Home to heaven. Knowing the excellence of Randy's study on Heaven, and believing the book would help my children answer THEIR children's questions about where Grandpa had gone, I bought the book. It was so good, we sat around Dad's bedside and read it aloud, twice, before he died, for his blessing, and our. A favorite vignette is the boy saying," I don't like it when people say, 'I hear you lost your grandma.' I didn't lose her. When you lose something, you don't know where it is. But since we know Grammy's in Heaven, we haven't lost her, have we?" This actually is for probably best for children a little older than my grands (the oldest is 2nd grade) but it will still be invaluable to their parents in talking about the delights my dad is experiencing right now.
