With large font and colored accents this question stealthily leaps from the back cover, "Do you ever wonder wonder about heaven?" Sadly, very few biblical books are written and even fewer biblical messages are preached on this topic. Have you ever wondered where ever is located? What will you being doing once you arrive in heaven? Dr. Paul Enns tackles these questions and many more in his book called Heaven Revealed.
This is a thoroughly researched and very well written book on a very important yet mysterious subject. All believers and many non-believers expect to go to heaven when they die. Many people have developed some pretty far-fetched ideas over the ages that reflect where they think heaven is, what heaven is like, and what we will doing for all of eternity in heaven. Enns attempts to answer those questions by drawing our attention to a careful examination of biblical references to heaven.
Dr. Enns weaves his explanations against the backdrop of his own experience with loved ones and friends who have already crossed that "great divide" and now reside in what we know and believe to be heaven. With his great deftness and skill he gives hope and information to those who have loved ones there, removes fear from those who are on the brink of entering heaven, and those who need assurance and guidance. This is a well written book and very easy to read. One can say it is even compelling, I could not put it down and finished it in two long afternoon reads.
Dr. Enns begins with his story concerning this subject and then systematically answers 13 questions about heaven in just 187 pages. The end notes section is full of valuable references and materials germane to the subject of heaven. I highly recommend Heaven Revealed as a wonderful source of comfort and truth.
