Publisher's Description

There are all kinds of ideas about what heaven will be like but

many of them just don't fit with what God has said in his Word.

Beam and Wilson take a humorous, insightful, and biblical look

at heaven and what it will really be like.

What's your picture of heaven? Will you be sitting on a cloud strumming a golden harp? Will you be singing in an eternal worship service? Will the gates be pearly and the streets paved with gold? Is the place you picture a place you would really

want to spend an eternity? Does your answer disturb you? This book paints a refreshing picture of heaven from Scripture. In the process the authors answer the questions that you may not have had the courage to ask and put aside many of the myths you might have thought were true.

    Ever really wonder what heaven will be like? We will all come to the end of our lives at some point and only two choices will remain where we will go from there, either heaven or hell depending on your beliefs. But what do we really know about heaven and where do we gain that information from?

    The people who die and return with glimpses of what the afterlife holds for us or do we look to God's Word, the Bible to see what His promises are?

    Joe Beam and Lee Wilson took an extensive study into the Bible to look at what The True Heaven really looks like. Are they Bible scholars? By no means. Just a couple of guys trying to understand scripture and put it into effect in our lives. Do they have all the answers? Obviously not. They aren't shy about sharing their views, but they admit that they are just that - their views. Their goal in writing this book isn't to get you to agree with everything; it is to get you to think. Feel free to disagree, to ask your own questions. Their hope is that groups of Christians - or anyone interested in what happens after human death - will use this book as a starter for Bible study, discussion and lively debate. I personally think they have done an outstanding job!

    In their book, The True Heaven: Not What You Thought, Better Than You Expected that tackle with scriptures such questions as "What happens when we die?" "Will we have bodies in heaven?" Are the dead aware of what is happening on earth now?" "Will we keep our memories in heaven?" "Do animals go to heaven?" and so much more.

    I guess the biggest question and one that Joe and Lee addressed in the book was the fear that all we would be doing in heaven was sitting around singing worship songs for an eternity. That might be enough to scare some people who don't appreciate some worship songs. Imagine doing that FOREVER, yet is that really what God intends for us when we get there? You'd be surprised at just what the Bible reveals God's plans were and what he intends to do to restore those plans. I found great comfort in digging along with them through scripture and seeing God's voice speak to me through His Word, about being reunited with our loved ones and wondering just how we will spend our eternity. Will we eat real food? Will we have supernatural powers? Will we know everything once we get to heaven? What happens after we die, do we go straight to heaven, remain in a deep sleep or does judgement immediately await us?

    I think this is a fantastic book to research things on your own through a personal study or even better as a small group study. They include some amazing study and group discussions in this book and I could see working through this book in a study a chapter at a time. The best part is that there is a real place that God has created for His believers for when we die and I, for one, am happy to know what it might be like according to God's word when I get there.

    I received The True Heaven by Joe Beam and Lee Wilson compliments of Lee Wilson, himself for my honest review. I think this book puts to rest some of those deep fears we all have that after this life on earth, what happens next. It provides hope to those who are grieving the loss of babies and small children that didn't get to know about Jesus, and for me, what happens to my pets when they die. This book is about hope for something so much more. It's encouraging and shows us that God does really love us as much as we want to believe and that they will be a better plan for us, once this life ends. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars in my personal opinion and think it's a great place to begin a personal study on your own to find out what God has to say about it all.

    Fantastic book on Heaven. Joe Beam takes the time to ask the questions we always wanted to know, but were afraid to ask. His use of the scriptures to backup his conclusions are amazing!
