This book personally ministered to me at the time of my husband's passing. It was sent to me by a former colleague who knew and loved my husband.
It presents a different perspective on heaven ... the future when we have the "new" heaven and "new" earth. Your heart will be blessed as you think of loved ones now in glory and what the future holds for all of us.
A great book...easy to read and understand.

"The Promise of Heaven: Reflections on Our Eternal Home" by Randy Alcorn is an absolutely beautiful book. It is filled with full color, photographs of nature scenes from the West taken by professional nature photographer, John MacMurray.
As one pages through the book, they are struck by the beauty of God's earth, and then Randy Alcorn fills their minds with thoughts of the New Earth to come. Answering a host of questions about heaven, the book is interesting, informative and delighful. Randy shares the Gospel clearly and encourages us to worship our Lord for the Earth we have, and our future "Heaven on Earth" to come.
The production of this book is top notch. While it isn't quite a full coffee-table sized book, it deserves a spot on anyone's coffee table. It would make a great gift for loved ones this Christmas. If someone you know likes mountains and nature photography, they would absolutely love this fine book. I highly recommend this.

Both my wife Beverly & myself have read Randy's book over & over as it gives the reader what God has in store for us when we see face to face our God & Father, the Lord Jesus, along with all the Awesome Beauty which has been created for us to enjoy for Eternity.

In Randy Alcorns book, The Promise of Heaven, he powerfully ushers the hope of our future to the forefront of our hearts and minds. Connected with that one-certain hope, the fear of tomorrow---including health and finance---pale, and loosen their grip on our lives today. Thank you Randy for your continual encouragement to be people of God today, with the hope of eternity as our strength and thank you for bringing John MacMurrays beautiful art before our eye to whet our appetite for the splendor which awaits us!Kimberly L.

I have just finished "Promise of Heaven" by Randy Alcorn and John MacMurray. What a gift their encouragement is to me and my family as we seek to live life on this earth with an eternal perspective --- a not so easy task considering the way we are bombarded by the wiles of the enemy and the allure of the world! Their book stimulated my thoughts toward remembering "to live is Christ to die is gain" and reminded me I never want to trade away that which is eternal for the fleeting temporal. A huge thank you to both of these men for their using their gifts to encourage us, the Body. God has repeatedly used Randy's works to mature me and my wife and we count our friendship with him a huge privilege. Todd PetersonNFL Placekicker, Retired (1993-2005)
