Description

Why a book about heaven?

 

For all the skepticism that abounds in our time, people still want to know what happens after death. Do you know with any certainty where your conscious, thinking, self–aware, communicative self will be? And does it matter, as long as you are in ‘heaven’? But the importance of ‘heaven’ does not consist only in it being the alternative to ‘hell’. It is not just an abstract future state into which we will slip, it is a physical reality which can give us joy and hope even now as we look toward it.

 

Derek Thomas examines how the Christian can and should think about heaven:

 

1. We Die … Then what?

2. Are You Ready?

3. Falling Asleep

4. The Trumpet Shall Sound

5. The New Heaven and New Earth

6. What Will Heaven be Like?

7. Like the Angels
