Review 1 for Heaven Revealed: What Is It Like? What Will We Do? And 11 Other Things You've Wondered About
Date:March 23, 2013
Heaven is a subject that causes an assortment of questions, concerns and debate. I have been intrigued with the thought of Heaven as of late and these being the case have reviewed two vastly different books on the subject.
After suddenly losing his wife of 45 years, Enns began a quest to answer the longings of his heart. His search lead him to write this book. Enns;s background seems sound: (minister through Biblical Training & Leadership Development, Idlewood Baptist Church, Tampa, Florida, and serves as professor and director of the Tampa Extension, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary)
Some of the topics of discussion are where is heaven? What kind of body will we have? What will the new heaven and earth look like? What will life be like in heaven? What will we do in heaven? What will our relationships with others be like?
While I didn’t agree with all of Enns’s ideas, I did appreciate his attempt at shedding some light on some very interesting theologies. Though at times it seemed like he was overstretching the biblical verses he was applying, making ‘claims into certainties’ based on one or two passages from Scripture.
Over all though I did enjoy the fact that Enns tried to back up what he was asserting with biblical content, this was far better than the previous book that I reviewed.
So in closing I would recommend this book generally, with caution. It is a great resource to help you understand that life doesn’t end when our life here ends. It will instill a peace about life after death and the assurance that we will one day be reunited with our saved love ones.
I received this book from Moody Publishers in the exchange for my honest review. Thank you Moody!

Review 2 for Heaven Revealed: What Is It Like? What Will We Do? And 11 Other Things You've Wondered About
Paul Enns, after losing his beloved wife of 45 years, found himself thinking more and more about Heaven. I have experienced this myself after losing my precious loved ones who have trusted Christ as their Savior. The way the book was written touched me at a very personal level. It brought back memories and thoughts of my loved ones as I reflected on what they would be experiencing in Heaven. Heaven Revealed answered a lot of questions I have asked myself and a few I hadn’t thought about. This is one of the most comprehensive books on this subject I have read. I appreciated how easy to read it was. There wasn’t a lot of theological jargon to wade through. Anyone could read it and without difficulty grasp the material. Some books I have found are filled with the author’s opinions or ideas, but this book is saturated with Scripture. Everything he says is documented with Bible references. It became a Bible study as I looked up the scriptures he shared. I think it will be a great lesson for a group or church class. I really liked the illustrations he used and personal experiences about his marriage and wife. Another thing I was impressed with is that almost every chapter had a box with a bare bones outline of the facts covered. This made it nice when I wanted to look back and have a quick review. The book inspired hope and comfort in me. I know that someday I will be there and how wonderful to truly know what my Lord has shown me about my future destination in His Word. In exchange for my honest review, I received a copy of the book from Moody Publishers.
