You'd think it would be easy to find a biblical book on heaven and I had the hardest time finding one that was truly based on the bible. John Macarthur does have one and it is biblical, but Randy's went into more detail. And Randy was very careful to not say "This is how it will be." He would give you the closest he could find what the Bible says about heaven and you could make your own decision. I really tried hard to find something unbiblical about this book and I could only find a teeny tiny small detail that I thought might be far fetched. After a year long study in this book it changed my Christian life and can't wait for eternal life. I highly recommend every Christian read this book.
"Heaven," by Randy Alcorn, is the best resource I have found that describes Heaven and what we can look forward to. This book gave me a greater desire to share God's promises of everlasting life in the place that He has prepared for all who have accepted and put their trust in His Word. It's a wonderful resource for those who minister to the elderly.
I lead a women's growth group and we've been reading Heaven by Randy Alcorn. We are only about halfway through and as a group we have decided to stop and do something else. We have all learned something from the study. But concepts that could have been covered in a paragraph go on for 3 or 4 chapters. I found the book very long-winded and some ideas somewhat "out there".
I had purchased Randy Alcorn's book Heaven several years ago in book and cd form. I purchased it this time to help answer questions a senior couple in our Country Church had brought up. I wanted them to have a Biblical work that was well referenced and Randy's book filled the bill.
