"He went to prepare a place for us"
I loved this book. In the beginning I was skeptical. But as I listened and saw that it was all in line with scripture I was glad. The reader did a good job. The book I couldn't get enough. About a month after listening to "Heaven" I lost a friend who passed on to be with our Savior. What a comfort it was to think about where my friend is in detail. All I could be was happy for him. And I look forward to seeing him again. This book is such a comfort and hope because it points out the comfort and hope the Bible gives us that we often overlook or don't understand.
Wow what a great encouragement! Helped me to have an eternal perspective on life which makes it more meaningful.
"Good, not great."
It has some great concepts in it, but there is FAR too much repetition. He returns to the same concepts over and over again with just the slightest variation. This would have been more valuable if it were more succinct.
"Awesomeness, refreshing , hours of scripture,"
The narrator is pleasantly informative with days of scripture. very liberating. Spot on. Love the transparency
"Solid Theology and Well Written!"
This was a very well written book, and it was laid out very well. Alcorn did an aging job illustrating his points, but more importantly he used Scripture as his primary source. in addition, Fabry did a very good job narrating the book allowing for the experience to be more enjoyable.
Brings the questions of heaven and answers them from scripture and common sense. opens your eyes and heart to heaven and begins to cause a hunger for home.
"Wonderful Topic, Enjoyable Read, But With Issues.."
Firstly, Chris Fabry is great. If I am thinking about buying a book and see that he's narrating, that will put me over the top for the buy.
Secondly, I believe Randy Alcorn is a sincere Christian and I really enjoyed MOST of this book. But I am simply disgusted by the terrible new Bible versions and just cannot give 5 stars when I'm subjected to things like the "NLT" (New Living Translation), especially when it really waters down and changes the actual words of the text. More and more of us who are serious Bible believers are going back to the trusted, tried and true Authorized King James Bible and if Alcorn had used that version exclusively, it would have made a big difference.
Thirdly, is this evangelical fascination with quoting questionable sources. I can only figure that Alcorn and/or his publishers think that quoting Roman Catholic sources (authors, monks, nuns, etc.) will sell more copies of the book. Those who know what the Roman Catholic Gospel is, know Galatians 1:6-9 and are not ashamed to STAND with God's word against the false gospel of Rome will find these constant quotations a HUGE disappointment. Meanwhile, honest Roman Catholics who believe their own church doctrine will find the "salvation by grace alone, apart from good works" (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 10:9-13) message (which is TRUTH) to be hard to take. Thankfully, many (especially American RC's) have no idea what their church teaches and they are saved by faith and not of works (see Ephesians 2:8-10).
Finally, while I could have taken the "Story" down to 3 stars and the "Overall" to 4 stars since I have TWO major issues... I am being generous and only striking HALF a star for these two issues mentioned above, especially since the overall message is Biblically sound, the style by brother Alcorn is VERY readable AND, as mentioned above, Chris Fabry is a PRO.
I pray for all who read this to believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ and join us in Heaven.
