Heaven Revealed by Paul Enns
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.
After losing his wife of 45 years, Enns began to think more and more about Heaven. He searched the scriptures and wrote "Heaven Revealed". I can't say I believe everything he wrote is correct, I feel it's more his opinion but what he wrote is heartwarming and inspiring. Scripture doesn't tell us much about what Heaven is like, we won't know until we get there.
The book is easy to read, full of scripture, and would be good for group discussion. Enns asks many of the same questions most people do after losing a loved one, he put in personal experiences to help with understanding.
I think the book will instill hope and comfort to readers. I give it 4 out out of 5 stars.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
