Have you ever wondered . . . ?
  • What is Heaven really going to be like?
  • What will we look like?
  • What will we do every day?
  • Won't Heaven get boring after a while?
  • We all have questions about what Heaven will be like, and after twenty-five years of extensive research, Dr. Randy Alcorn has the answers.
    In the most comprehensive and definitive book on Heaven to date, Randy invites you to picture Heaven the way Scripture describes it—a bright, vibrant, and physical New Earth, free from sin, suffering, and death, and brimming with Christ's presence, wondrous natural beauty, and the richness of human culture as God intended it.
    This is a book about real people with real bodies enjoying close relationships with God and each other, eating, drinking, working, playing, traveling, worshiping, and discovering on a New Earth. Earth as God created it. Earth as he intended it to be.
    The next time you hear someone say, "We can't begin to image what Heaven will be like," you'll be able to tell them, "I can."
    "Other than the Bible itself, this may well be the single most life-changing book you'll ever read."Stu Weber
    "This is the best book on Heaven I've ever read."Rick Warren
    "Randy Alcorn's thorough mind and careful pen have produced a treasury about Heaven that will inform my own writing for years to come."Jerry B. Jenkins
    "Randy does an awesome job of answering people's toughest questions about what lies on the other side of death."Joni Eareckson Tada
