Jesus has returned, Judgment Day is over, God has created a new heaven and a new earth where people will live forever in the New Jerusalem.

What is that life like? Is it a world of disembodied spirits sitting around playing harps and singing hymns of praise to God? A somewhat boring world?

Fortunately, God has promised us much more: Our bodies shall be resurrected, and our n

Honestly - and as a Christian I'm kind of ashamed to admit this - this is the first depiction of heaven that's really been attractive to me. The book describes how we often think of heaven as being filled with "lethargic bliss:" Everyone sitting around, singing hymns and being happy. It seems so ... boring.

Really fascinating story, that only served to make me homesick :)

I enjoyed reading this book. Although I think one should be careful about visualizing something we cannot comprehend yet I liked the continuous focus on God's love for His creation throughout the story, and after all, that's what is most important. ...more
