" . . . And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
What a wonderful blessing it is to know that we can live with God forever!
Yet heaven remains a mystery to us. We can't fully comprehend it, so we hesitate to discover it. We rarely give heaven a second thought until the pain and suffering of this life forces us to grasp for a greater hope.
Like so many others who have journeyed through suffering, Dave and Jan Dravecky have caught a glimpse of heaven's glory. They have drunk deeply of its comfort and hope. And they desire to help others discover the truth about heaven, experience the hope and comfort that heaven provides even in the midst of suffering, and look forward to the eternal home God has prepared for his children.
Opening the Bible to see what it reveals about heaven, Dave and Jan take you on a journey that will lift your spirit and make the vision and hope of heaven real to you. The Draveckys share the wisdom and insight of well-known peopleJoni Eareckson Tada, R.C. Sproul, A.W. Tozer, C.H. Spurgeon, Billy Graham, and otherswho have caught a glimpse of heaven from this life. And they have added the touching, triumphant stories of those who have watched their loved ones walk through heaven's gates.
Those who face the trials of illness, grief, and suffering will find ready encouragement within these pages. A caring gift for those who suffer, especially those who may be facing death, Glimpses of Heaven opens the gates of heaven for us to view and inspires us to live in light of its wondrous promise.
