One thought on “Heaven

  1. Josh Crews

    This is my 1 book After justification finished atonement at the cross, this is the most wonderful, joyful topic to know, discover and just ponder The saints will reign with Christ on this very Earth, made perfect at the resurrection Every Christian brother sister I will always see again and am never saying goodbye for the last time The biblical doctrine of Heaven the New Earth is very under taught, under preached, and under grasped by modern western Christianity but is a treasure chest full of u [...]

  2. Maureen

    I love this book Even now that my husband has been diagnosed with a dreaded cancer, incurable but treatable I ve had this book for a few years but always skimmed a chapter or two until now Randy Alcorn writes so wonderfully about Heaven and what it will be like for the believer A true inspiration for those of us who belong to Christ.

  3. Nathan

    For many Christians this book represents an outside of the box approach to thinking about and envisioning Heaven The common theme is What if and Why not when it comes to the realities of our future Home The author lays the groundwork for his claims with specific scriptures on the topic that have been undertaught and or passed off as figurative This is a refreshing look at Heaven that has given me a renewed anticipation of my ultimate reward

  4. Doug

    Have to say this book was largely a 476 page exercise in begging the question Alcorn begins by assuming that the New Jerusalem of Revelation and the New Heavens New Earth of Isaiah describe the final state of heaven and then deduces virtually everything about heaven from those axioms If he s wrong about those passages, then the book could only be about twenty pages long The problem is that Isaiah s description of the New Earth still includes death No shall an infant from there live but a few da [...]

  5. Natalie Weber

    This is unquestionably the best book other than the Bible, of course that I ve ever read At a whopping 500 pages, it may appear daunting, but it is broken down into short, easy to manage chapters I could almost feel myself being blessed each morning as I read from it, and I wouldn t be surprised if I read it again someday once everyone else in my family finishes reading it, since I ve told them all that they absolutely must Mr Alcorn shatters the preconceived conception that most people today ha [...]

  6. Ron

    It was okay, but it should have been much better The subject deserves better, and Alcorn is capable of better For openers, he crowded two or three hundred pages of essentials into almost six hundred He hid his serious arguments in idle speculation and self quotations yes, he cites his own fictional works Believers in the literal inerrancy of the Bible may even have trouble which some of his convoluted logic, but most of it is so buttressed with footnotes see above and Biblical citations that the [...]

  7. Leslie Christopher

    I didn t finish this book.got about 3 4 of the way through it and it became so repetitive and so much conjecture that I just didn t see the point I will say that the first several hundred pages are devoted to the actual theology of Heaven and Alcorn does a great job of documenting his claims Biblically, and I enjoyed this part very much I also want to give him credit for not being dogmatic about his eschatological view, and for repeatedly stating that his vision of what the New Creation will act [...]

  8. Kristin

    This book completely changed my view of heaven It made me realize some things that I had believed but never really realized what I believed This is packed full of scripture references so it isn t just his opinion.This has helped me look forward to heaven as well as see how my life here on earth right now ties in with my life that I will live in heaven.I realized that I used to think that you lived here, then you died and then everyone started out on the same playing field again so to speak This [...]

  9. Dan Mills

    I loved this book This definitely goes into my favorites category This book took away some of the fear of dying I believe the author is right on the mark, theologically, and expounds with logic in area s that are not in black and white in God s Word Below are a couple of my favorite quotes As long as God keeps you here on Earth, it s exactly where he wants you He s preparing you for another world He knows precisely what he s doing Through your suffering, difficulty, and depression, he s expandin [...]

  10. Stephie

    Great biblical insight about what heaven and the new earth will be like and how incredible and not boring both will be.Reminds the reader that God is accomplishing everything for His name s sake for His own glory it shall all be accomplished And the already accomplished work of Christ his life, death, and resurrection are not only the means by which individuals are saved from their sins against God, but also the means by which the whole earth all of creation shall be redeemed.This book has a jaz [...]

  11. Maria Elmvang

    Randy Alcorn brings forth a lot of ideas I d never thought of before like an intermediate Heaven where believers go between the time they die and the bodily resurrection to the New Earth it makes lots of sense and there is Biblical grounds for it, I d just never heard that theory before and while there are a few where I think he draws broader conclusions than the Scripture allows, on most of his theories I completely agree I highly recommend it to any Christian If you don t really look forward t [...]

  12. Stacey

    I am pretty excited about reading this book, because at times I can be rather apathetic about heaven I know my vision can Fall flat on it s face in light of what is coming In the preface he talks about Florence Chadwick swimming from Catalina Island to the shore of mainland CA she stopped 1 2 a mile from the shore The next day she said, All I could see was the fog.I think if I could have seen the shore I would have made it Alcorn s vision is to show us the shore This book, has changed my perspec [...]

  13. Debi Walter

    This book has helped me grow in my love for eternity There have been times when thinking of life after death has frightened me, not knowing what to expect Randy has researched the Scriptures extensively, and his perspective is like a fresh breeze blowing in a stagnant room I didn t realize how much I had embraced a false view of Heaven until now Everything that I love about life here on Earth is just a shadow of the world to come When I arrive in Heaven it will be familiar to me because that is [...]

  14. Ruth

    If American Evangelicals suffer from any areas of spiritual poverty, they re the areas of the Holy Spirit and the theology of heaven If you find that your ideas of the eternal state are vague and insubstantial, I strongly suggest this book as a good place to start I like the clear biblical basis for Alcorn s major points, and I like that when he s speculating, he says so Best of all, even his speculations are not mere speculations they re rooted in overarching principles observable in Scripture [...]

  16. Debbie

    I learned that I have a very limited view of what Heaven can be like I think that I have grown spiritually because of this book and have become excited learning about Heaven.Yes, I will see my pets there and lions and horses and all other kinds of animals Lions and tigers and bears, oh my.

  17. Paul

    A life altering, paradigm shattering book Unfortunately, as a church we have done a poor job casting a captivating view of Heaven to our children This bled into adulthood for me When I began reading this book, my perception of Heaven was painfully boring The problem was, I had never been shown just how much the Scriptures have to say about the place Instead of viewing the Earth we live on as a shadow of what is to come, I pictured heaven as being other wordly and ethereal.Randy Alcorn s materpie [...]

    Randy is a great writer of both fiction and non fiction This book is the definitive book on Heaven He also has the Heaven for Kids, in paperback version, which I am currently reading to our family weekly, on our Sunday evening family time.What I like about Randy is that he makes Heaven real and a place you long to go, not the fictitious eternal church service that some people portray it as He is also very clear when he is quoting directly from scripture or when he is speculating based upon his u [...]

  19. Lynette Norton

    I m thankful Randy had the insight to write such a book as this Since the death of my daughter I have wanted to know about Heaven and why not, she lives there now When people lose a loved one they have so many unanswered questions and Randy does a great job addressing most every one I can think of about their new address Heaven Trouble is their new residence is in a place where we can t just get on an airplane and go for a visit, but Randy uses scripture to paint us a beautiful picture of what [...]

  20. Adrianne

    Loved the book a bit wordy at times in terms of being repetitive, he likes to make the same point sometimes than once so that we definitely get it I definitely enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone that may have questinos about Heaven Although some of the stuff is speculative, Alcorn atleast advises of such He provides great scripture to back many of his opinions although I would suggest to him with sticking to one version of the Bible, preferrably the King James Version All in all a GRE [...]

  21. Mike

    Although repetitive in places, the author presented ideas, supported by scripture, that caused me to to step back and reevaluate what I had previously thought about heaven This book appears to be very well researched and in my view, the author depicts a credible and compelling view of heaven I highly recommend this book, including the appendices, for anyone that is curious or not sure what to believe about heaven.

  22. Cindy

    Alcorn makes the distinction between the intermediate heaven now temporary and the new heaven new earth final state He develops a case for a Physical Heaven final state , as well as other aspects of heaven learning, rest, new bodies, ruling, culture all grounded in Biblical Scripture.

  23. Mike

    I can t wait to die When you read this book all about the biblical Heaven and New Earth , you ll want to get there too What a great book This is an exhaustive study of every aspect of the afterlife from a biblical perspective Every question that you can think to ask about Heaven is asked and answered in this book Frankly, I can t wait to read it again.More importantly, I can t wait to get there What a wonderful place it is And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am going there because many [...]

  24. Brian The Furnace Man

    You mean we won t be spending eternity as disembodied spirits floating around on clouds playing harps I was so looking forward to that According to the author if we can imagine it then it is a possibility Not the disembodied spirit part The author does a very good job bringing out the biblical evidence that this is not true However, he speculates that we will possibly be able to travel the new universe to visit other planets So if this is a possibility than why not be able to float on a cloud pl [...]

  25. Amber O"Bryant

    Becoming Heaven FocusedThis book was a breath of fresh air for a believer who feels presently stuck in an evil world and lacks the desire for an ethereal otherness, convinced that he or she was created for something Alcorn presents the argument that our culture s view of Heaven, a cloud lined, white washed, harp filled existence, leads believers to desire this world above the one we were created for As Christians, we should be filled with hope and desire for Heaven, not dread or avoidance.Thoug [...]

  26. Audrey

    I ve cried buckets of tears while reading this book It gives me such a longing for what God has prepared for those who love Him Sometimes I wonder what I will do when I meet Jesus for the first time Will I dance for joy, fall down and worship Him, or give Him a huge hug I do know I will be delighted and thrilled I can t wait to see the home that He has prepared for me I can imagine that one of the first things I will be doing will be dancing with the pure joy of living One idea that thrills me i [...]

  27. John

    This book is a really fun read Just know that Alcorn operates off of what he calls the principle of continuity, meaning that the New Earth is going to be almost exactly like the Garden of Eden I don t have a problem with that line of thinking, but I m also not ready to say it s explicitly in the Bible, like Alcorn does but it certainly seems to be implicitly there.There are a couple times where he states his own speculations as if they re fact Like when he says at the bottom of p 254 that The mo [...]

  28. Jamie Paul

    A very enlightening book on the Scriptures presentation of Heaven Too, the book gives insight to the works of C.S Lewis, which now has me wanting to pursue his work for my personal reading As a writer who has published one spiritual novel Where The Birds Go When It Rains with many planned, I am grateful for Randy Alcorn s clarification of the Intermediate Heaven vs The New Earth My limited Christian knowledge did not have me educated about the differences, according to the Scriptures The book i [...]

  29. Zach Landes

    This is a book I often go back to Because it is a book that changed a significant portion of my theological mindset Before reading this book, I have to admit my view on what heaven will be like was deeply inaccurate And I am happy to report that the reality of heaven is much exciting Randy Alcorn does an amazing job of using the text of The Bible to piece together a great picture of what heaven will be like, and it blows away most erroneous depictions of heaven thanks largely in part to our med [...]
