This book is part of my collection that really focuses in on Biblical Commentary more than anything else (including some well known authors in the theological world). All of these books haven't been read cover to cover, but I've spent a lot of time with them and they've been helpful in guiding me through difficult passages (or if I desire to dig deeper). ( )

"Other than the Bible itself, this may well be the single most life-changing book you'll ever read." - says a quote prominently displayed on the dust jacket. I remember the first time I looked at this book and saw this quote from a man I have no knowledge of named Stu Weber. I thought to myself "Yeah, right... I'm sure it's a good book, but THAT's gotta be an exaggeration." Now having finished the book, I can agree with Stu Weber's analysis! This has been a life-changing read for me - one that I'm sure to revisit again.

The author does a fantastic job of taking deep subject matter and explaining it in a conversational tone, meant to be understood by the masses - he didn't write this just to impress his colleagues. The chapters typically range between 8-12 pages each, making for easily digestible chunks.

There is a deficiency in the church when it comes to teaching about heaven, and a considerable amount of the teaching that does exist makes incorrect assumptions that are unbiblical in nature. It's difficult to have a longing for something that we don't understand and cannot rightly imagine. Randy Alcorn has attempted to correct this, having written an in-depth analysis of what the Bible has to say about heaven - and there's more there than many might assume. Going beyond a simple textual study of the doctrinal side of heaven, Alcorn instructs the reader in how having a right understanding of eternity should impact our day to day lives. This should spark the average reader to transform his thinking, attitude and actions.

Knowing that this present world will end and be resurrected into new heavens and a New Earth should profoundly affect our behavior. Thinking of Heaven leads inevitably to pursuing holiness. Our high tolerance for sin testifies of our failure to prepare for heaven.. ( )

First 1/4 was amazing. 5 stars. Appendices were good as well. I'm sure the rest was good. It it just didn't interest me as much so I skimmed most of it. Overall fantastic book. I found it incredibly encouraging and resolved many of the issues I've had reconciling the beliefs I was raised with with what I found in scripture. ( )

This has been an important part of a work that God has done in my heart, enflaming a longing for heaven and for God in whole new ways. If Christians lived with this perspective it would transform our daily lives. I feel as if the engine of my Christian life just got supercharged. I don't know that Randy is right in all of his perceptions, but I do know that it won't be less than this! This is what Christ saved us for, so make sure you know what the Bible has to say about heaven. ( )

This was a very interesting and enjoyable book. Some of his ideas regarding heaven are really "out there," so to speak, and I will be spending some time in the Scriptures to investiagate what he was talking about. I am planning a Bible study on Heaven and this will be a resource that can be helpful. But it was very interesting to read by itself. What is this cloud of witnesses cheering for us? Where is Heaven? What about this New Earth? A lot of questions answered. ( )

Bookstores overflow with accounts of near-death and after-death experiences, complete with angels giving guided tours of Heaven. A few of these books may have authentic components, but many are unbiblical and misleading.

The truth is, in our seminaries, churches, and families, we are given amazingly little attention to the place where we will live forever with Christ and his people—
God never gave up on his original plan for human beings to dwell on Earth.
It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven ... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life.
God has given us glimpses of Heaven in the Bible—to fire up our imagination and kindle a desire for Heaven in our hearts.
