What is Heaven like? Popular media portrays boring white clouds, but many verses in the Bible give hints of a wonderful place of joy, vitality, and restoration. Whether you are just wondering or know someone facing death, the Heaven eBook explores everything Scripture says about that elusive and much-desired place.
Some of the topics:
Why is Heaven important?

What is the new heaven and the new earth?
This eBook gives biblical reasons to have confidence that we will recognize one another, that we will be freed from suffering and pain, and that we will have joy and a closeness with one another and with the Lord that is beyond our experience here.
Gain new insights from the Greek words neos and kainos to see that our lives will be better, renewed, and transformed, to their original glory and purpose. Compare the media's view of heaven with the real vibrant heaven of Scripture.
We have glimpses of heaven in our daily lives: in the love we experience for and from other people, in the majesty of nature's beauty and power, in the generosity and kindness of people in times of need, in the smile of a happy baby, in the loyalty and warmth of our pets, and in moments of deep emotional and spiritual connections with our loved ones and God.
This eBook will give comfort and inspiration to those wondering about heaven. Those who have surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ will know the joy and fulfillment of being in a place that has the best of this life and much more.
