Eternity by Tony Evans

Book description:

We often think of heaven in two extremes: It’s either a dreamy existence where we float around on clouds with nothing much to do, or it’s something far off in the future that we don’t want to happen until we accomplish all that we want to in this life.

Both of these are flat wrong, and Tony Evans looks to Scripture to set the record straight. Simple and straight-forward, Eternity is a short book on what eternity with God will really be like.

“God hasn’t told us everything [about heaven],” writes Evans, “but Scripture gives us enough glimpses and enough promises about heaven for us to know we don’t want to miss this place of eternal joy.”

Walk through Scripture with Evans as he plainly explains what heaven is like, who will be there, and what they’ll be doing. With engaging illustrations and practical insights, you’ll know what awaits believers forever and how that matters for life today.

My review:

I was surprised when this book arrived in the mail. It is a very small, thin, book and only has about 80 pages. However, there are a lot of thought-provoking ideas within the pages.

I appreciated the detailed explanation about what believers can expect heaven to be like. Certainly it is something that all believers already eagerly anticipate seeing. I also really appreciated the way that Evans backed up his description about what to expect in heaven with references to what the Bible says about heaven.

A surprising effect of this book is the way that it motivated me to tell others about heaven, especially loved ones who are not believers. The thought of them missing out is too painful to contemplate.

If you have questions about what heaven will be like, this is the book for you. It provides a Biblically-based description of what we can expect and answers a lot of questions that I had and that I have heard others ask over the years.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
