As Christians, we know someday we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven. And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven. In this enlightening book, bestselling author Dr. Robert Jeffress opens the Scriptures to answer ten fascinating questions about heaven:
· Is heaven a real place or is it a state of mind?
· Who will be in heaven?
· Have some people already visited heaven?
· What will we do in heaven?
· Will we know one another in heaven?
· What difference does a future heaven make in my life today?
· Do Christians immediately go to heaven when they die?
· Do people in heaven know what is happening on earth?
· Will heaven be the same for everyone?
· How can I prepare for my journey to heaven?
"My friend Robert Jeffress has done a masterful job of helping believers think biblically about that future home Jesus is preparing for every believer."-- Dr. David Jeremiah, founder and president, Turning Point Ministries
"Our life on earth is but a brief wisp of vapor compared to the eternity of heaven, so it makes sense to learn as much as possible about our everlasting home. I highly recommend A Place Called Heaven to every Christ-follower. I also recommend it to those who do not yet follow Christ, as it will give the skeptical reader solid, biblical answers to their toughest questions about the world beyond the grave."-- Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
"We're all curious about heaven, and thankfully this book uses biblical teaching to enable us to get a peek behind the curtain. Read it to be reminded that the best is yet to come."-- Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, pastor emeritus, The Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois
"A clarion call for us all to look up and consider afresh how much God loves us and how profoundly our lives on earth matter. May you devour these pages, as I did, and begin to live more purposefully with eternity in mind."-- Susie Larson, talk radio host, national speaker, and author of Your Powerful Prayers
"A thousand years from today you will be alive... somewhere. No one is really ready to live life to the fullest until he or she is ready to die. Robert Jeffress opens biblical truth with the desired end that you can have the assurance you will live forever in... A Place Called Heaven."-- Dr. O. S. Hawkins, president/CEO, GuideStone Financial Resources, Dallas, Texas
