Overview

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Alcorn has been narrating his own books for some time now, for better or worse. His untrained style is never better utilized than here. In this work about the concept of heaven (an adaptation of his work HEAVEN, for adults) he keeps his manner conversational, as if talking directly to children. Kids introduce the questions, and Alcorn responds. He sounds practiced as well as comfortable with his own vocal limitations. He speaks kids' language, interjecting words like "cool" and "awesome" where he feels necessary. This adaptation is also aimed at adults looking for ways to answer their kids’ questions, although preschoolers may not understand some of the deeper concepts."

Not only are the answerswonderful for children, but they will apply for skeptics as well as new believers. Placing such important questions in such a presentable way will give parents, grandparents, and Sunday School teachers a valuable resource.

I love this book, and it really means alot to me. This book helps me know God more than I already do. God has done many miracles through me, because I have told him I would follow him, and this book helped me recognize these things.

The ideas in this book are expressed in a fairly complex manner,and would be difficult for early teens or younger to comprehend.Also this book repeatedly emphasizes that the only way to Heaven is by believing in Jesus Christ,not by doing good deeds.The could be quite upsetting to kids who are of a non-Christian religion.

This is by far the best book I have ever read to my children about heaven. It has completely answered any questions they could ever come up with. It really makes you think about it differently than you ever have before. Death becomes much less scary when you see what is coming next.

If people who do not believe in Christ read his book and find it upsetting it is because they are going down the wrong path in life. Heaven is real and God and Jesus Christ ar real. If non Christians find this upsetting it is because they are believing lies

In a language kids can understand, Randy Alcorn explores Biblical answers to the questions kids often have about heaven. Alcorn addresses questions and answers based on scripture in a style relevant to today's kids. The book also has a summary of the Gospel for those who want to be sure they are going to Heaven someday. Randy encourages kids to live “in Light of Heaven.” Examples are entertaining and the answers are always backed up with Scripture references and Biblical principles. It also deals with secular misconceptions such as people becoming angels or ghosts when they die and sitting on clouds, etc. Absolutely one of the best books for children ever published. Heaven for Kids is well-written, thought-provoking, and based on scripture. The book is not intended to be the definitive word but intended instead to challenge the reader to give hope and a promise for a better tomorrow. This book has lots of Biblical answers about Heaven and it is easy to read & understand. I recommend Heaven for Kids to any and all children who want to know what Heaven is all about. Reading about what heaven is about should make you more determined than ever to reach the lost. I received this E-book for my review.
