Thoughts of heaven can be unsettling. Life with no end? Space with no bounds? Are we supposed to feel good about these things? Bestselling author Max Lucado assures us that we can. There is much about heaven that we don’t yet understand. And while thoughts on our final destiny may stir questions, they needn’t stir our fears. In Beyond Heaven’s Door Max takes us on a journey from finding certainty in our destination to God’s great promises of the hereafter. Open the door and catch a glimpse of the joy that awaits you in heaven—and find hope for today in the process.
This is written in the typical Max Lucado style, full of personal stories in addition to scripture. Max uses a lot of metaphors to make his points which just makes his writing all the more easier to understand. He has not written about near death experiences where people make visits to heaven, and it is not about what you might see in the environment. He writes about what the Bible tells us for those who are believers. What they can expect when they experience eternal life. The book stresses the importance of our salvation and God’s expectations of his believers as well. It is written with a well flowing style and can easily be read in a short period of time. This would make a great gift as it is published in a small hardback format that is common for gift books. I thought the book was easy to read and simple to understand. I would highly recommend this book to Christian readers and while you are at it, pick a few up for your friends or family as well.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book to review from Booksneeze. I was not obligated to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are my own.
