This was what caught my eye...'One moment after you die, you'll find out what's on the other side.' Don't wait until then, read Randy Alcorn's biblical perspective on Heaven now. Verse by verse see what the Bible actually says about Heaven! The reality is that we are all going to die. Not one soul will avoid death's sting. Aren't you just a little curious about what happens next? This book will really make you think about salvation and eternity.What happens next is eternally critical for all of us.

One of my most favorite book. It makes me long for the place I was created for. Not just to escape this very hard world but for the best of reasons

This book answered a couple of questions that I've had in the back of my mind since I became a Christian as a child. I found the book hugely comforting and exciting. I was also challenged by the concept of building up treasures in heaven - not something I've heard preached a lot. This is a small book, packed with great truths.

I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it! If you are a Christian, this book will become one of your favorites, one you'll want to share with others, and reread periodically for encouragement and edification! It's a thrilling reminder that even the smallest of kind deeds, done in Jesus' name, will be rewarded by Our Heavenly Father. We are less likely to grow weary in doing good if we view our lives in light of eternity. Thank you, Randy Alcorn and God bless you!
