Overview

Is it wrong to speculate on heaven? Some wild and weird ideas have come about because of ideas that are not rooted in the nature and character of God. However the author of this studies argues that even though people can be falsely led in the subject of heaven, it may be worse to never think about it at all. In our fear of teaching an incorrect picture of heaven, sometimes we end up with no picture and heaven becomes, in a sense, an ‘empty address.’

Everyone has questions about the life hereafter. Questions such as these: Will our bodies have substance or will they be spirit? Will we experience our life in heaven with our five senses? Will we want to meet those that ‘have gone before?’ Will we know one another? Will there be time in heaven? If so, how will it work? If not, then what? What do the images of heaven given in Scripture mean? Are they metaphorical? Are they literal?

Instead of focusing on what will be ‘missing’ in heaven, the author leads the reader into a deep discussion of God’s nature and His clear intentions for His creation. “God is creative, intelligent, socially interactive, and loving. Far more than anything in the animal world, humans are also like this. God made us this way… for heaven.” (p. 49)

Boles does a wonderful job of looking carefully at the natural questions that arise regarding the hereafter and seeks to answer them from a Scriptural, helpful and sensitive perspective.

Heaven has 8 chapters and 69 pages.
