As the years pass and we watch more and more of our family, friends and mentors pass away, it is only natural to ask questions about heaven.

Fortunately, in Heaven Randy Alcorn provides us with a thoroughly researched and /5(). How exactly do humans reach heaven? How Do I Get to Heaven? makes the way plain, explaining seven key Bible verses from the apostle Paul’s letter to Rome. From “There is none righteous, no not one” (Romans ) through “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans ), this little book provides a clear and easy-to-read explanation of humanity’s problem (sin 5/5(2). Although there is a lot of speculation and imaginative elements to the book, I found that his picture of heaven and the new earth opened up for me a longing for and anticipation of my future It’s a lengthy book ( pages) and at times, overly wordy, but I loved that Alcorn took our often pre-conceived ideas of what heaven is like or could be /5. One thing that makes heaven what it is are the persons who will be absent from heaven. Who will be absent? The unwritten are not there. "Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Rev) The words, “Book of Life” occur seven times in the book of Revelation. Yes.
Everyone wants to know about heaven and everyone wants to go there. Recent polls suggest that nearly 80% of all Americans believe there is a place called heaven. I find that statistic encouraging because it tells me that even in this skeptical age there is something deep inside the human heart that cries out, "There's got to be something more. In the last book of the New Testament, Christ tells John to write down His revelation of the future. “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City coming down out of heaven from God. A book called Proof of Heaven is bound to provoke eye rolls, but its author, Eben Alexander, had space in a Newsweek story and on shows like of Fox & Friends to detail his claims. Read into those endorsements — and nearly 15 million copies sold — whatever you will, but in a big new Esquire feature, Luke Dittrich pokes large holes in Alexander's story, bringing into question the . If you are wondering what happens when we go to heaven, find some answers in Heaven by Randy Alcorn. In his book, Randy breaks down biblical answers and facts based on years of research and study. Presented in an engaging, reader-friendly style, his conclusions will surprise readers and stretch their thinking about this important subject.
This FREE ‘taster’ from Ian Kingsley’s parent book: ‘Reality Check: Science Meets Religion’, shows how Heaven can be ‘found’ again—a place just as tangible as this world—as hinted at by Jesus. Plausible explanations for some of the mysteries of religion can offer doubters a sounder foundation for belief in God in an age. The last book in God’s archives is the single volume, called the “Book of Life.” Even at this judgment of the wicked, this book is the final answer of man’s eternal judgment. Notice this statement, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 15) No doubts could be allowed. He included some very kind words about my book Heaven. Thanks, Paul. When I was researching Heaven, I read volumes on the subject, many long out-of-print.

Daniel 10 speaks of the book of truth, Ezekiel receives a book from heaven to eat, Revelation mentions various books–the book only the Lamb can open, the book of life, the little book held by an angel, and so forth. Not only are there books kept in the presence of God, but also those God himself writes, as referenced in Exodus
