When we experience snippets of happiness and, sometimes, pleasure, we often wonder why the world we live in cannot sustain these kinds of wellbeing. Hence, we feel as if we miss something. According to this book, though, we find nothing good here on earth for which heaven lacks a better substitute--one of infinite proportions. Whether we desire greatness, beauty, holiness, healing, or answers to questions of ultimate concern, heaven will satisfy these desires completely. Hence, this book aims to help the believer anticipate a glorious end to this life and an even more glorious beginning of a new one. Moreover, the book helps to create frameworks enabling the reader to live a meaningful life here on earth in spite of the reality of pain. If this goal helps a suffering saint to face his or her hour of trial bravely, then it will have accomplished its purpose.
Joseph Okello writes about heaving using his mind as a philosopher and his heart as a pastor. The result is a book that lays a solid foundation for us to stand upon as we seek to fulfill the hunger of our heart for eternal life.

Human languages lack the words to describe the glory and the beauty of heaven. However, Dr. Okello's book, written with the passion of a pastor and the mind of a theologian, leaves the reader longing to be there!
