Since the dawn of Christianity, one question has plagued both believers and skeptics alike: Is there truly a Heaven? If so, what is this magical place truly like? Unfortunately, there is only one way to find out the answer to this question, and no one has lived to answer it. Sure, there have been some who have claimed to have seen Heaven, but there is no concrete proof to their claims.

Fortunately, one man has taken the time to put together all that is known about Heaven and has put together a great book that answers many of our questions about eternity. In Heaven, Randy Alcorn uses information exclusively from the Bible to look at what God has told us about Heaven.

This book is an amazing read that answered tons of questions I had about God’s Kingdom. Heaven is broken down into 3 sections: the Theology of Heaven, a questions and answers section, and Living in the Light of Heaven.

Each section focuses on the results of Alcorn’s years of Biblical research into the issue of Heaven. Throughout the book, Alcorn tackles the tough questions, including: What will we do in Heaven? Will we see family and friends? Will we have physical bodies, or will our souls just float around?

I really liked how Alcorn brought up the idea that the Heaven that exists now is just temporary and that after Christ’s return, God will create a new Earth for His children to inhabit. For those that doubt the existence of Heaven, one should look no further than the first paragraph of Alcorn’s book. The passage is from John 14:1-3.

Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

Jesus’ own words show that Heaven must exist, and Alcorn himself encourages those who find his observations incorrect to test his writings against Scripture.

If you have ever wondered about Heaven, I highly suggest you get a copy of this incredible book. Heaven by Randy Alcorn is a refreshing and eye-opening read that will leave you more confident in the joys of eternity.
