I’ve often been asked “What will Heaven be like?” and to my embarrassment and dismay, I had to admit that I really didn’t know a lot about Heaven, but knew I sure preferred it, to going to Hell. Over the past couple of years, my life has been deeply changed by the deaths of people I loved very deeply. In an attempt to educate myself and better understand what it means to die, and what to expect after death, I began a quest for knowledge of a subject many people in my “profession” talk a lot about, but I have come to learn, really know little about. Most people avoid the topic of death, particularly if they have a recent experience of the death of a loved one.

I have avoided the subject, I have lived through the experience, I am suffering the present absence of people I dearly, dearly love. I find myself at a place I never wished to occupy, with feelings I never would wish for anyone to experience, but they are real, I am here, and so is my friend, the Lord.

The Word of God says that Jesus is a friend that stays closer than a brother, and I can say I know that this is true.

I found a book written by a man who had recently suffered the death of his mother. He was devastated by her absence and set out to understand the reality of what it means to die, and what to expect after this life ends. As a result of his search, he authored what I have found to be a god-send, the book that has the best BIBLE BASED TRUTH on the subject of what we can expect in the place we know as HEAVEN. Randy Alcorn has given what I believe to be the most beneficial, and informative work to the people who are searching for the truth about the death of someone they love and long to see again. HEAVEN is the name of the book, Heaven is the name of the place I long to go, not just to escape a place called Hell, but to be reunited with those I love and miss. I have to confess, I have placed my faith in Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I have the promise of Salvation and the hope of the Resurrection. I must also confess that now I have a far greater understanding of what it means to long for a city I have not seen, one that is not built by hands. One day Jesus will call my name, and I will rise to be reunited with those who have crossed that river before me, and to the one who loved me more that life.
