The Real Heaven: A Book Review

About The Book:

Amid all the popular conjecture about Heaven, what does the Bible actually say? And why does it matter?

With all the sensationalized stories of Heaven told from people who claim to have died and come back, how do you really know what to believe about Heaven?

Heaven has received a lot of attention in recent years as bestselling books and movies have told the stories of people who claim to have been there. 

What does the Bible actually say about heaven? 
What difference does it make? 
What happens the moment after we die? 
What will our relationships be like in heaven?

Chip Ingram sets aside the hype and myths and digs into the Scriptures to discover what God actually wants us to know about the afterlife hereafter. Most importantly, Ingram shows why our understanding of Heaven matters now, in this life. Because what we believe about Heaven actually affects us today in ways we may not have imagined.

My Review:

Within the last decade there have been countless books and a number of Hollywood movies about the topic of the afterlife and Heaven in particular. Some of them have been very good reads and views, some not so much. But in general, many of them have made the topic of the afterlife a round table discussion and just as confusing as always. 

Recently, author and pastor, Chip Ingram, released his newest book, The Real Heaven and does a remarkable job at discussing the topic of Heaven. It is an easy to read and comprehend book, and strong theologically as well.I particularly enjoyed how much detailed study he does with the book of Revelation, a book that I often have trouble understanding. He made learning about this detailed book of the Bible easier and I for one appreciated that. In particular he did a well job at examining the New Heaven and New Earth. Very well done. 

I HIGHLY recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase The Real Heaven at your favorite Christian book retailer from Baker Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group
