Editorial Reviews

Review

"Alcorn has been narrating his own books for some time now, for better or worse. His untrained style is never better utilized than here. In this work about the concept of heaven (an adaptation of his work HEAVEN, for adults) he keeps his manner conversational, as if talking directly to children. Kids introduce the questions, and Alcorn responds. He sounds practiced as well as comfortable with his own vocal limitations. He speaks kids' language, interjecting words like "cool" and "awesome" where he feels necessary. This adaptation is also aimed at adults looking for ways to answer their kids’ questions, although preschoolers may not understand some of the deeper concepts."

I first purchased this book because I had read the "Heaven" book by Randy Alcorn. The book is based on Scripture and is easy to understand. I think children need to know the "real" idea about Heaven, rather than some "ficticious" thoughts. I find it encouraging to know that here is a great and trusted source to help children understand what Heaven is really all about and the wonders that await those who have accept Christ into their lives.

I recommend Heaven for Kids to any and all children who want to know what Heaven is all about.

The CEF Mailbox Club sends Heaven for Kids as an award to children who have completed a certain correspondence course and has been well received. This excellent book should be a "must read" for all 8-12 year olds. It would also be helpful for Sunday school teachers and parents as a guide on how to anwer questions children have regarding Heaven. Each chapter is prefaced with a Scripture passage and a corresponding allegorical selection from The Chronicles of Narnia. The chapters are divided into potential questions on the various aspects of Heaven. There are entertaining examples but the answers are always backed up with a liberal sprinkling of Scripture references and Biblical principles. It also deals with secular misconceptions such as people becoming angels or ghosts when they die and sitting on clouds, etc. Absolutely one of the best books for children that has ever been published.

This is another wonderful book for kids about Heaven. Once again my kids just loved it. Every night they were eager to read this book before bedtime to try and answer the questions. The questions were very thought provoking and got all of us thinking a lot more about heaven. Randy did a great job of weaving in the truths of scripture and making it easily understood and helping me to be more confident in speaking to my kids about heaven.

Format: Paperback
I've never seen an author approach the cotroversial topic of Heaven as Alcorn does in this book. Having grown up in the church, I've heard about heaven so many times and that's "where" we get to spend eternity "praising God" and such. And, that was all fine for me ... until my dad was killed suddenly in a boating accident. Then, just knowing I was "going to heaven" was just not enough for me. And, the more I searched the Scriptures, the more confused I became. I was hopeless and had resigned myself to believing (well, I had been misled by the Evil One) that we would have no idea who people were and heaven was this sort of intangible, mystical place that I was *supposed* to be excited about. I wasn't. In my heart, I was fatherless and I could have cared less about heaven if that's all that it was. Oh, I wanted it to be enough to just be with my Lord and Savior, but I could not let go of just not knowing my dad any more. What was the point? I bought this book for my kids since dealing with death had hit them at such an early age, they always have questions and always felt so incapable of answering their questions ... until this book! Thank you, Mr. Alcorn, for giving hope to this hopeless mom!

I absolutley love this book! I have a progressive disease and worry about my young child growing up without his mom. I read this book first and found great comfort in what it has to say about Heaven. I appreciate all the references to scripture so you can look things up for your self if you choose. I will now begin reading this to my son so he will have a better understanding of what Heaven is all about. This book is very uplifing. A must have for all Christian homes!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the adult version of this book and really got a lot out of it. So much so that I felt compelled to buy this for my kids. My spouse and I read this to our kids and that was a good thing. Our oldest is 11 and we had to go slow and explain a lot of the thoughts and concepts in the book.

I'm not sure if our kids captured the exciting vision of hope that the author intended to convey, but it was a good family experience to read it to them.

I gave the book 4 stars because younger kids may have a harder time grasping the vision; therefore, I would now say that this book is more appropriately aimed at kids in their young teens although they may chafe at the "For Kids" tag on the cover. I should note that the content of this kid's version is totally solid and that I thoroughly enjoyed the adult version of this book as well.

HeavenEveryone should read this book, Christian or not. If you are a Christian, you will become more excited than ever to leave this earth and go to your new home. If you are not a Christian, you will be ready to give your life to God, so that you too, may go to HEAVEN!!! Everything that Mr. Alcorn writes is backed by scripture, so this is not a "made up" story. "Heaven" has given me more determination than ever to try to reach the unsaved.

We own the hardback book Heaven - this paperback Heaven for Kids - and the 64-page booklet made for sharing Heaven: Biblical Answers to Common Questions and they are ALL wonderful.

Heaven, the original, longer, hardback book, is a much more in-depth treatment and argument for understanding heaven scripturally (physical, all that is good, richness) rather than how Heaven has been defined culturally (white, fluffy, harps). I have enjoyed this book Heaven for Kids because it was so much easier to get through and quickly understand than the big book (whether kid or adult ;).

This series of books is endorsed by Hank Hanigraff of the Christian Research Institute which I view as the litmus test of bible-based trustworthiness. Thus, I feel confident in its assertions and presentations.

Will there be dogs in heaven? Well God created them and called them good ~ why wouldn't there be? Learn more about the current earth, the new heaven & new earth, and all that God has revealed about life eternal in this wonderful book.

Bon Appetit!
