Everything the Bible Says About Heaven
The title of this book caught my attention. I sometimes wonder about heaven and speculate on what it is really like...Are there really cute baby cherubs strumming harps on clouds?
Thankfully, Everything the Bible Says About Heaven does deny that myth because what you find is a great reference book scripturally documenting heaven from Genesis to Revelation .
Throughout this book, there are very few commentaries on the selected passages, which leaves opportunity for readers meditate on the Word and/or to engage in biblically-based dialogue about heaven.
I would highly recommend this book to be used in a bible study...One can explore what the bible says about heaven in a meaningful way as the editors have compiled the contents of this book with a sense of direction.
Chapter 1 - The Place Where God Dwells: Old Testament Visions of Heaven
Chapter 2 - Many Mansions: New Testament Visions of Heaven
Chapter 3 - Heaven in the Book of Revelation
Chapter 4 - Between Heaven and Earth
Chapter 5 - Answers From Heaven
Chapter 6 - Who Will Go to Heaven?
Like mentioned, this book is a scriptual reference, having little commentary, and leaves opportunity for some fantastic discussion. Check it out for yourself!

I didn't think much of it when it happened, but it did and here I am. What was it that led up to this event? I can barely recall. It doe...
I suppose I should write something. I have been reading over my blog posts of late and noticed that I have not been so "revealing"...
