Product Description

Our culture has a lot to say about heaven. But too much of it is based more on imaginative speculation or "supernatural" experiences than on the Bible itself.

In the latest addition to the Theology in Community series, Christopher Morgan and Robert Peterson have assembled an interdisciplinary team of evangelical scholars to explore the doctrine of heaven from a variety of angles. Among other contributors, Ray Ortlund examines the concept of heaven in the Old Testament, Gerald Bray explores the history of theological reflection about heaven, and Ajith Fernando looks at persecuted saints' special relationship to heaven in the New Testament. This team of first rate scholars offers modern readers a comprehensive overview of this often misunderstood topic - shedding biblical light on the eternal hope of all Christians.

Endorsements

I do not know another series quite like Theology in Community. Each volume is grounded in both the Old and New Testaments, and then goes on to wrestle with the way the chosen theme has been developed in history, shaped the lives of men and women, and fits in the scheme of confessionally strong Christian theology. The volumes are characterized by rigor and reverence and, better yet, they remain accessible to all serious readers. If we are to pursue more than unintegrated biblical data, but what Paul calls 'the pattern of sound teaching,' this is an excellent place to begin.
-D. A. Carson,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

This distinguished series brings together some of the best theological work in the evangelical church on the greatest themes of the Christian faith. Each volume stretches the mind and anchors the soul. A treasury of devout scholarship not to be missed!
-Timothy George,
Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School

We live in a day of cloudy thinking about the most important matters of life. What is needed is meat but along with instructions about how to use a fork. In this series, Chris and Robert help us understand difficult doctrines by being both biblically faithful and culturally accessible. I highly recommend this series to all who want to know, love, and worship our great God.
-Darrin Patrick,
Lead Pastor, The Journey, St. Louis, Missouri; Vice President, Acts 29

Robert Peterson and Chris Morgan have put together an elegant and edifying series of books for the Theology in Community series. This series tackles some big and juicy topics on theology, ranging from kingdom to suffering to sin to glory. They have recruited some of the best theological thinkers in the world to explain what it means to have a 'faith seeking understanding' in our contemporary age. The volumes are full of solid teaching in biblical, historical, systematic, and practical theologies and contain a wealth of immense learning. A valuable resource for any thinking Christian.
-Michael F. Bird,
Ridley Melbourne College of Mission and Ministry
