Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Step back a moment, focus your eyes of faith, and then come with Joni into a world you've heard about from your youth but have never seen: heaven. You just might discover that heaven is closer--and more real--than you've ever thought.

In this joyful best-seller, Joni Eareckson Tada paints a shining portrait of our heart's true home. Joni talks about what heaven will be like, what we'll do, and whom we'll see. She shows how heaven will be the satisfaction of all that our hearts cry for, something more real than anything this side of eternity.

And Joni tells how we can prepare now for the reality of heaven.

With hope for today and vision for those who struggle in life, Heaven invites us to a refreshing and faith-filled picture of our glorious destination. Once you've caught a glimpse of heaven, you'll see earth in a whole new light. "My friend Joni Eareckson Tada is one of God's choice servants today." -- Chuck Colson, Prison Fellowship "In Heaven, Joni gives a full treatment to one of the most important, yet sadly overlooked, doctrines of Christian faith." -- Philip Yancey, AUTHOR of The Jesus I Never Knew --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Very informative book on authors beliefs and thoughts.
Amazon Customer
This is a wonderful book that provokes us to think and look forward to our future in Eternity, and ponder the amazement of what awaits us there.
Amazon Customer
It's an easy read, but you have to take time to think about it before you move on to the next page/chapter.

Format: Paperback
Wow! I read this book while facing the death of loved ones for the first time and it changed my life. I always knew the scriptures and promises of heaven as a Christian's real home, but Joni brings it into reality. Soon after diving into it's chapters, You too will long for your real home...and the fulfillment that will come only from being face to face with our Heavenly Father and Saviour Jesus Christ. Joni reminds us that Heaven is so very real, and so close to us. Heaven cannot be described in human terms, but she does her best to get our thoughts churning in the right direction. This is a book I will go back to throughout the rest of my life!

I highly recommend this book for parents who have children who are chronically ill or disabled. I believe that people who find themselves in this situation will also be blessed.This book challenges the readers to take God out of a box and encourages them to envision heaven in a new and exciting way.So throw away the wings and harps and picture a place where there will be nomore tears, no more pain and friendships that will be eternal. We ain't seen nothing yet! Praise God!

Format: Paperback
Joni truly has her eyes on the "prize"--Heaven! (see I Corinthians 9:24.) This book is so beautiful; it is really beyond words, it speaks from heart to heart. If you are reading this I truly believe you have been sent here and it is God's will for you to buy and read this book.
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Neither have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him." I Corinthians 2:9 THE HOLY BIBLE
Perhaps Joni is the one exception to the above scripture! It is truly Amazing someone can take the limited scripture we have on Heaven and turn it into an inspiring, moving, exciting, and soul-stirring book! I wish this was in every home in the world! Once you start reading it is almost impossible to put down! And if you do, it won't be very long until you pick it up again! "Heaven Your Real Home" will make your soul ache and yearn for Heaven! Really wanting it will definitely help you get there!
I leave you with the words of Jesus: "NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, 'LORD, LORD,' SHALL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER IN HEAVEN." Matthew 7:21 THE HOLY BIBLE

Format: Paperback
After reading Mary K Baxter's book, I was skeptical about purchasing anymore books about the afterlife. But after watching the Heaven/Hell documentary, it inspired me to purchase this book. I must say that this book is biblical! Joni doesnt conjure up any false visions or dreams about heaven. She sticks strickly with the scriptures, and also adds her real life experiences to express her thoughts of the heavenly realm.

Format: Paperback
Jodi has given me such a wonderful outlook on life, people and faith. She has hit such a spot in my soul i cannot begin to share this very very special feelig. I feel truly as a soul inside a shell. The shell is nothing if the soul isn't doing. This is what this is about. God Bless this women and know that she has been given a gift and writing is it. Please read this book then discuss it with me. I would love to talk to anyone about it. Also I would love to know if I can get these books on tape. I have a dear friend with Huntington Disease. She cannot read anymore and I intend to give her these on tape to listen to.

Format: Hardcover
Joni does a wonderful job of relating many thoughts of heaven to the reader. She envisions heaven from various perspectives. "Recognizing a relative", "How long is eternity?", "Will we get bored?", "Having fellowship with Jesus", and "What will Heaven look like?". Although the answers will not be truly known until going to heaven, Joni gives the reader a taste of heaven on earth. This book creates the anticipation of going home to see Jesus.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By David Brown on February 27, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this mistakenly thinking it was the base book "Heaven". Instead it is a devotional with excerpts from "Heaven". There are 10 Parts to the devotional which I guess gather the excerpts topicaly. Within each part are 2 page devotions that each start with a bible verse and often end with a short prayer. There are only a few line drawings, and none of Joni's fabled color paintings within. However, it is sufficient for my purpose.

Part 1 What is so great about heaven?
Part 2 Who are we in heaven?
Part 3 What will we do in heaven?
Part 4 Where is heaven and what is it like?
Part 5 Why don't we fit on earth?
Part 6 Heaven has our heart's desire
Part 7 Heaven: the home of love
Part 8 At home with our king
Part 9 Getting ready for heaven
Part 10 Homeward bound

Format: Paperback
Joni writes in such a casual way, right out of her heart and mind, I just finished reading "The God I Love" and it really helped me get acquainted with her. Of course no one knows much about Heaven unless God has given them a glimpse but our Bible gives us enough information to know that it is going to be beyond our wildest dreams. Certainly anyone who has doubts about Heaven should read Joni's book. No one can truly imagine what all God has in store for those who love Him, but this book certainly touches that place deep in your heart where you know that "HEAVEN IS A WONDERFUL PLACE, I WANT TO GO THERE!
