curt johnston5 Stars Out Of 5June 9, 2005curt johnstonI'm no academic. After 100 pages, I began to wonder why Alcorn's hypothesis tested by a full court of scriptural reference has not been woven into the central core of biblical teaching more extensively in the past 2000 years. Had I somehow missed the clear scriptural concept of Heaven in God's great plan? I found myself wondering if Alcorn's theology of Heaven was ... well, hype. I began referencing cited scripture through various translations. I tracked Greek & Hebrew key words ... conclusion: Alcorn's on to something! I've not heard the paradigm shifting message this clearly anywhere before. Maybe it's been out there and I just needed to read the book!Heaven is a must read, basic tool for understanding our final destination.
Dr. Robert W. Kellemen5 Stars Out Of 5May 30, 2005Dr. Robert W. KellemenPastor, seminary professor, speaker, and writer Randy Alcorn has written a monumental opus on heaven, humbly titled "Heaven." I often have taught that our views of heaven are too heavenly and not earthy enough. Alcorn's entire book communicates the same message. His theme is continuity--all that is beautiful about life on earth continues in the new heaven and the new earth. All that is horrible about life on earth is healed in the new heaven and the new earth. Notice the phrase "new heaven and new earth." When you do, consider Genesis 1:1, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." What is heaven? Some ethereal, non-physical place where spirit beings sit on clouds playing harps eon after eon after eon after boring eon? Hardly! In Alcorn's biblically accurate hands, heaven becomes what God designed the Garden of Eden to be--a physical place of beauty, a relational place of harmony, and a purposeful place of meaninful, creative work without weeds. Read Alcorn's "Heaven." It could and should change how you live on earth now. It could and should change how you view how you will live for all eternity. Reviewer: Dr. Robert W. Kellemen is the author of "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," and the forthcoming "Sacred Companions: A History of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
Rev. Patrick Lockhart5 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2005Rev. Patrick LockhartWhat a 21st century masterpiece. I have and will never look at Heaven in the same way again. Randy Alcorn has given us a truly wonderful and biblical view of Heaven. I would highly encourage every Christian and non-Christian who has had various questions concerning the afterlife to read this book through. I promise you it will open your eyes to some very powerful biblical truths. This book is not only doctrinally sound, but Alcorn's hermeneutical skills are right on track also. It is well worth the time to read! If I could I would rate it a 10 out of 10!
Ann5 Stars Out Of 5December 7, 2004AnnI've never read a book that gave you such an appetite for heaven. I always wondered like most people, just what will we do in heaven. He gives such a beautiful and exciting picture of Heaven. I figure even if it isn't exactly the way Randy describes it, that means it's only going to be better.
Linda Orr5 Stars Out Of 5November 1, 2004Linda OrrI have read over 100 books on the subject of Heaven and I have never read one that touches the soul as Randy Alcorn does in his book called Heaven. It is so informative, easy to read and understand and he backs up everything with scripture. There is not a more important subject than where one will spend eternity. Randy Alcorn has spent 25 years writing this book and it shows. When you are reading this book, you know the Holy Spirit has to be revealing this to him because it is so profound and clear and when you look up the scriptures yourself, it is crystal clear to you. I have the book and the book on Audio. Both are magnificent and would make excellent Christmas gifts because it is a destination that we all are going to be going to.
