The Heaven Promise; A review

The Heaven Promise by Scott McKnight; A Review
McKnight has done Christians a great service in writing this book.  Although he acknowledges some of the many
“old wives tales” and traditions about heaven, he has always brings the
discussion back to “what does the Bible say?”

Organized into four parts, the 25 chapters follow a logical dealing with the
mystery of heaven. Some of the chapters are dealing with specific questions
people have raised through the years about heaven; questions like “What about
near death experiences?” “What about rewards in heaven?” “What about
cremation?” and “Will there be any pets in heaven?” Of special interest to me
was “God’s Six Promises about Heaven”.

I think that every pastor will benefit from reading this book and keeping it
close at hand as a reference because of the extensive research McKnight has
done.  The bottom line for the author is
found on the back of the dust cover; “My hope,” McKnight shares, “is that
people will be hopeful about heaven.”  To
that I say “Amen!”

disclaimer; I received this book from “Blogging for Books” for my review.
