Book Review: Heaven Revealed

Heaven Revealed
Heaven Revealed: What is it like? What will we do? and 11 Other Things You've Wondered About
By Paul Enns
Moody Publishers, 2011
English, 208 pgs.

There are so many questions in life... but few are as universal as: "What is the afterlife like?" For those who have put their hope and trust in Jesus Christ here on earth--Heaven awaits. Addressing questions as basic as What will we do there? and What is it like?, theologian Dr. Paul Enns dives deep into the Scriptures while reflecting on the very personal nature of what is to come. Heaven Revealed is concurrently a helpful, easy-to-read guidebook for Christians as well as an encouragement for those of us who are left here on earth after our loved ones who are Christians pass away. Follow along as Dr. Enns succinctly leads you through what the Bible has to say about Heaven.

In grief, we all need hope--hope for our loved ones who are now gone, and hope for ourselves as eternity looms closer. Heaven should be something to look forward to, not something to be confused about.

This is a scripture filled book with the questions most people ask about Heaven. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on "What will we do" and ""What will life be like". I agree with the author that too often people picture Heaven as just sitting around playing harps. I personally believe there will be more to it than that. I believe that we will have full, perfect lives. There will not be pain, suffering, sorrow or loss. There will be joy, banquets and perfection. There is just so much in this book and it's all pulled and interpreted from Scripture. I have a feeling this is going into my husband's sermon prep library!

I received 2 copies of the book, one to review and one to give away, in exchange for an honest review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
