From the back cover:
It’s not easy separating fact from fiction when it comes to heaven, nor is it always easy to see how the afterlife can affect our lives today. After a car accident caused his nineteen-year-old son to unexpectedly enter heaven, Pastor Steve Berger chose to reject despair and commit himself to carefully studying his son’s new, eternal home. He had no idea how much there was to learn, and his life hasn’t been the same since. This biblical and deeply personal study of heaven will give you hope for the future.
But more than that, it will show you what it means to live today in light of the reality of heaven. If your view of heaven isn’t life-changing, it needs to be adjusted. Let Pastor Berger’s exploration of eternity fill you with overflowing hope, courage, and purpose.
I was excited to read this book, thinking that it would better help me imagine what heaven might be like. I found it to be much more. It is a source of encouragement of making a difference while we are here on Earth, waiting for the reality of heaven. I loved the way that Berger reminded readers that even though heaven is our real home, and our hope is in heaven, we should not be complacent. I also appreciated his descriptions of what we will do in heaven, all based on verses from the Bible.
Overall, I thought this book delivered exactly what it hinted at on the cover – hope, courage, and passion through a fresh vision of heaven. If you are searching for a book to encourage you to make a difference, persevere in your walk, and look to the future, this is a great book for you.
