Finally I am eternally minded

I first listened to this book about 4 years ago when I was having heightened anxiety. I was in the midst of a tramatic season in my life. I was actually calling to get an appointment to get put on some calming medicine when someone interupted me and to share audible and this book Heaven by Randy Alcorn. I listened to the book and it began to change my life. As I now had a biblical picture of where I would be going I stopped dwelling on the things I couldn't change where I was currently. My faith grew so much stronger and I could deal with this present because my future hope was opened up to me. Now four years later and I walk in this knowing and expectation. When I read the bible I no loger gloss over all the bible says about my future dwelling place. This world has lost it's grip on me. Depression and anxiety are still here sometimes but they don't own me. I only need remember that this present suffering doesn't compare to the joy coming.

Inspiring

I was glad for the use of scripture to give weight to his insights. This is a great book to use with scripture to give insight into what heaven will be like.

Very good!

I chose this book because I have AML and possibly only have a year to live. I have been a Christian for 36 years but really never gave heaven much thought. Knowing I will be there soon I decided to learn more . This book definitely gave me a longing for heaven!

Wonderful book!

Well written and easy to follow. I was impressed with the extraordinary amount of scripture documentation throughout the book. Every topic and concept was backed up with Scripture references. It was so good I could hardly wait to get to the next chapter. I am now listening to the book a 2nd time for details I missed. Anyone wanting to know about the after life will be interested in this book.

It will make you long for Heaven!

I enjoyed this book very much. Prior to reading this book, I had a hard time envisioning a lot of the aspects of Heaven. Randy does a great job a showing how we can extrapolate details of the new earth from observing not only our present earth, but also God's original intent for our present planet. Well done!

Very inspirational book!

I’m so glad that God put this audiobook in my hands to listen to. It’s so inspiring, full of wisdom and based on the teachings of the Bible. I will be coming back to the many section I have highlighted to internalize them and keep them as motivation in my life until the end of my days on this earth and be part of the new earth and new heaven that God promises us.

Thorough, solid, necessary teaching on heaven

I wish I had heard all this years ago...better late than never. Having a fuller and more biblically sound understanding of heaven makes a huge difference on one's view of this world. Too many Christians have an escapist mentality which does little to inspire non-believers to even respect us, let alone follow in our footsteps.

brining hope back into your heart

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever wondered what the Bible really says about heaven.

What other book might you compare Heaven to and why?

It is hard to compare any other book to “Heaven” but the author references the works of C.S Lewis often for his depth and understanding of heaven.

What does Chris Fabry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Chris Fabry has an enjoyable voice to listen to and really brings the descriptions of heaven to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

i couldn’t have listened to this book in one sitting. But I never lost my interest either.

Excited!

I can’t wait to see my husband Paul again! He died 11 months ago. He has gone to heaven before me and I’ll be there soon. I have so much to look forward too.

Incredible listen. I was skeptical about listening initially, but this is grounded in Biblical truth and takes a realistic look at Heaven.

Great Book

I tried reading this book without success and then decided to listen to it being read. I was fascinated with it . It has helped me to rethink my perception of heaven and given me a new longing for home. I'm in my seventies and some precious folks have gone home and I found this book very helpful to imagion where they are and what life will be like with the Lord. Thank you Randy Alcorn
