A thousand counterfeits vie for your attention, trying to convince you that they are what you're looking for.But you'll never find true satisfaction with what the Shadowlands of this world have to offer.What you really crave can only be found in the land of substance

A delightful encouragement of heart, soul and mind! Giving us a clearer picture of all that God HAS told us about heaven in His Word, Alcorn draws us closer to Jesus in love, gratitude and hope, for ourselves and our loved ones.

This book is a real eye opener. Lots of Scripture references.
It certainly dispels the "Hollywood" version of Heaven.

Great book! Lots of good insight and explanations with Bible verses to prove his points. Very informative and easy to read. Enjoyable and thought provoking!
Kathy Rogers
Best little book on heaven I have ever read! Love Randy's insights and that he backs it all up with scripture...actually excites you about going to heaven!!
Christa Baker
Very rich with scripture and full of different view points on what we know as "eternity". I really enjoyed this book.
Christopher Brehm
Excellent book. It has a way of capturing your mind and transporting you into this book's vision of heaven.

I was given this book when our son was killed. Alcorn expands your views of heaven.

Great book, I really enjoyed. I could hardly put it down. Highly recommend!
Good information by a trusted author, but a slow read for me.
