This book was a very quick read - written in simple and understanding prose, based on Scripture, especially Revelation. It answers questions about Heaven - what it will be like based on the information the Bible gives us. Anne Graham Lotz makes it easy to understand, and offers up such sweet stories in support of what Scripture tells us. This is a book that I could see being extremely useful to someone who is nearing the end of their life and who maybe hasn't accepted Jesus yet. Or perhaps has a ...more

I liked this pretty quick read.

She writes well, is organized and from a personal viewpoint which I like.

Some quotes:
"One day God will remove all the scars and tears; until then, He will give us encouragement."

I liked her illustration about how God can use our suffering. The illustration is of a rowdy atmosphere in a pub. Drinks on a platter are being served but the server is bumped and the drink splatter against a newly whitewashed wall.

A mess is observed until a famous artist in the pub jumps u

Recommends it for: someone who is dying or recently lost someone
I read this book a long time ago and have since gifted it twice. My friend Melanie's mother was dying of cancer. She had a lot of questions, so I gave her my book. I bought it again because it was so good. I ended up sending that copy of the book to my aunt when she was dying. After she passed, my uncle read it. He told me it was very comforting to her in her final days. It's a great book if you've got questions about what happens when you die - and how do you get to heaven, anyway.

I think that this book was good, I just wasn't the target audience. It has some good, Biblical information about Heaven. I especially liked the part where it mentions Heaven as being a place that is bought and paid for. I hadn't thought of that before. :) And it is a short read, so I don't feel that I wasted my time, but I also didn't feel like I learned a whole lot. I much prefer the larger book "Heaven" that is almost a textbook on the subject.

What a great short book to recharge your batteries and remind yourself the goal is heaven.
Anne Lotz (Billy Graham's daughter) does a great job explaining what heaven is in a down to earth way. I enjoy her writing style and her way to add lists (without numbers) to explain.

This little book was amazing. Anne does a wonderful job pulling from Revelations details about Heaven and what our home will be like, when we, as believers, go home. I would highly recommend it to everyone!

Anne has a way of getting a whole lot of facts out of a short section of scripture. Just when I thought I knew all there was to know about heaven, I read this book and find out more.

“Heaven will not only look fresh and new, it will feel fresh and new. John gives us, not just a vision of Heaven’s fresh beauty, but a “feel” of Heaven’s serenity, which permeates the atmosphere because God is there: And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev. 21:3–4).” 0 likes
