Editorial Reviews


"With a blast of the trumpet, listeners know that once again they’re about to peer behind the curtain that is the heavenly realm. This 50-day devotional guide is expertly narrated: Randy Alcorn introduces each day’s meditation; Simon Vance delivers choice excerpts from the sermons of the “Prince of Preachers,” Charles Haddon Spurgeon; and Alcorn returns to offer his concluding thoughts. This dual, masterful reading, along with the content, sets this devotional work apart from the rest. Alcorn’s excitement at the mere thought of the glory of heaven is perfectly matched by Vance’s British sermonic tone. This audio experience is, well, heavenly. I cannot recommend an audiobook any more highly."

From the Back Cover

Prepare to Experience Paradise . . .

Some of Spurgeon’s most powerful sermons were those he preached on Heaven. Up until now, however, very few of these sermons have been available to a modern audience.

In what is sure to become an instant classic, best-selling author Randy Alcorn has compiled fifty of the most profound spiritual insights on eternity from these sermons and arranged them into an easily accessible, highly inspirational format complete with his own comments and devotional thoughts.

Whether you are familiar with the works of Charles Spurgeon or not, you are in for a treat as Alcorn invites you to sit at the feet of the “prince of preachers” and discover timeless pearls of wisdom about Heaven from one of the greatest theologians of all time.

It is one book I will listen to and read over and over.

The blend of Alcorn's insights he has gleaned from Spurgeon and the Bible are a blend that makes this a worthwhile read.
I read this every morning and am really enjoying seeing Heaven before I get there.

Randy Alcorn uses edited excerpts of Spurgeon's sermons about heaven in this devotional and adds some of his own content. They make wonderful compliment to Spurgeon. For those who are not familiar with the life and preaching of Charles Spurgeon, Alcorn introduces him throughout this 40 day devotional. The introduction carries a short biography of his life and work, and then Alcorn weaves other fascinating bits of information into his content. But...this isn't a book to glorify Spurgeon or Alcorn. Its theme is God and the Heaven that He inhabits and shares with His children.

The first few readings are situated in the place where the focus on heaven is the most pronounced, after the death of someone near and dear to us. Sadness gives way to joy as the reader progresses through these opening days. And it continues that way throughout the rest of the book. Alcorn's comments and illustrations help reinforce the encouragement or exhortation that Spurgeon provides. There are a few entries, however, that do focus on the fate of those that refuse to heed the Word. While those are few, they do serve as a reminder and a cause to express gratitude for the grace that is available to us.

As Alcorn aptly says in his first comment, "We should not romanticize death." Spurgeon certainly did not and was well acquainted with sorrow himself as the reader will discover in the readings. This devotional is probably one of the most helpful collections of writings about the topic as I have encountered. I recommend it without reservation.

This book was provided by Tyndale in exchange for my review.

Format: Hardcover
I have been greatly impressed with Alcorn's writings over the last year, and this devotional-type book does NOT disappoint. I have always been overwhelmed with the vast content you can find regarding Spurgeon and his sermons from long ago, so I absolutely love this "concise" book specifically concerning the topic of heaven--a topic near and dear to my heart from May 25, 2010 onward. I was almost concerned that this book would be TOO heavy of reading and that I'd have to sift through these lengthy sermons in order to uncover an applicable illustration. Thankfully, Alcorn has already done the dirty work for us and we can jump right into the "good stuff." Separated into 50 days or chapters, it's easy to systematically work your way through this book without being overwhelmed. Day 9 (Seeing Our Loved Ones In The Morning) is especially thought provoking and encouraging for me personally. A great, great encouragement for those who have had to say goodbye through death to saved loved ones.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By D. Lowrie on October 4, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, born in England in 1834, is considered to be one of the greatest preachers of his time and his name continues to be recognized today. We Shall See God is a 50 day devotional book that incorporates Charles Spurgeon's sermons on heaven with Randy Alcorn's personal thoughts and commentary. Because Spurgeon's sermons were typically very long and at times difficult to read because of paragraph structure and language used from that period of time which no longer is understood with the same meaning today, Alcorn edited the sermons to be more "readable" to a contemporary audience. These excerpts were not altered in "content," just made easier to read and understand. Following the portion of Spurgeon's sermon for the day, referenced by the sermon title and number, date, and where or for what occasion it was originally delivered, Randy Alcorn then gives his commentary and thoughts on the issues addressed by Spurgeon.

This is not a casual devotional with a simple verse and thought for the day. To me, they were more theologically deep and thoughtful. It is not what I consider an "easy read." I found Spurgeon's portion a little more difficult to read than Alcorn's commentary, but perhaps that is to be expected since Spurgeon's were delivered as a sermon while Alcorn's thoughts written in more of a devotional way. One thing is certain though, the truths that Spurgeon speaks about continue to be as relevant to today's world, as they were in his time.

If you love Charles Spurgeon, or desire to read about what the Scripture says about heaven, then you will find this book helpful and beneficial. We have the hope of heaven after we die, and this book reminds us of that fact as we make our journey through this sometimes difficult life.

I received a complementary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers blogger review program in exchange for an honest review.

I've had a couple of weeks to spend with this latest devotional book by Randy Alcorn, We Shall See God: Charles Spurgeon's Classic Devotional Thoughts on Heaven. I haven't read the entire book cover to cover, but my impressions thus far are good. While Spurgeon's printed works abound, I am not overly familiar with them and have never spent any length of time with his sermons or commentaries. This devotional book has provided me the opportunity to get a glimpse of his writing style and theology. I can say that up to this point I have enjoyed what I have read and been challenged to think over certain passages of Scripture in ways that I may not have previously considered. I am grateful for the style in which this little book as been compiled that it provides me a snapshot of a large volume of work in very manageable portions.

Considering the way the book has been compiled, the book is a devotional tool and is set up to be read over the course of fifty days. It could certainly be read in a shorter time frame, but that would not allow for serious reflection over the topics and themes shared in each day's message. Personally, I think it is worth the effort and time to not only read the message, but to give attention to what is being said; meditation and reflection help to get the most out of each devotional exercise. I also appreciate the introductory notes that precede every devotion. Alcorn includes the title of every sermon that has been excerpted and its number from Spurgeon's archive. Additionally, where there are explanatory details about the sermon, those have been included as well. I find these extremely helpful as an extra resource should I desire to pursue more study from a particular sermon.

This devotional book is centered on Spurgeon's sermons about Heaven.
