Format: Paperback
Many people believe the path to heaven is like the spokes on a tire and there are many different ways to reach it. In this short volume, Dr. Dwight Carlson tackled this topic: WHO'LL BE IN HEAVEN & WHO WON'T?

As he writes in the introduction, "The aim of this book is to evaluate what the Scriptures actually say on the subject. The goal is to communicate critical ideas that for the most part are not appreciated by the vast majority of the religious and irreligious alike." (Page xvii)

The subtitle for this book reveals the contents: "Many "Christians" will be lost. There will be heathen in heaven. Catholics will be there. You'll find Muslims there. Many Jews will be in heaven; many won't. Many religious leaders won't be saved."

The teaching in this book is straightforward and easy for every reader to understand. As Dr. Carlson writes near the end of the volume, "God continues to call people from all over the world who are willing to put their trust in him, follow him, and thereby enjoy eternity with him surrounded in unimaginable splendor. That's what life is all about." (Page 102)

I enjoyed reading WHO'LL BE IN HEAVEN & WHO WON'T? and I recommend it.

Thanks to Dr. Carlson for wrestling honestly with issues that voice what some of us ponder, namely, how can a loving God exclude those who honestly seek Him from an eternity spent with Him. While I have always fundamentally held to(and continue to hold to)Jesus' assertion that "no man comes to the Father but by me," Dr. Carlson's writing has also prompted me to reconsider the words of Jesus in light of the phrase "but by me" ... for example, could that mean that without his death, no one could be reconciled to God (as opposed to the act of believing of his death and resurrection as atonement for our sin)? Still, God will be God, and will deem whomever He chooses "worthy" of spending eternity with Him. Thanks, Dr. Carlson, for nudging us to consider more perspectives than perhaps we've always been taught!

A good examination of the issues surrounding expectations regarding the afterlife in light of biblical passages dealing with the subject and the role of faith recognizing that we do not have all the answers and that a loving and just God is our judge.

Format: Paperback
Interesting book and interpretation of Scripture. (Yes, I agree with Dr Carlson...generally) As a Mormon, I actually am in complete agreement with Dr Carlson on -most- this book. I find it interesting that a rigorous study of the Scriptures brings Dr Carlson to the same conclusion that I have about Heaven. One part that I don't believe is "annihilation"...Maybe it is the Einstein in me. (I think this is just a topic of study and not a teaching in his book)

2015 update: The smarter I get, the more I see how we humans are products of our childhood and are basically brainwashed. (for good, bad, political, and religion, etc etc) Most people tend to strongly believe in their brainwashing and don't/can't see anything else and have no idea they have been brainwashed.

One thing I see in this book is that God will be fair. Outside of his fairness I really have no idea how things will really end up.
It is interesting how people with near-death experiences and visions etc "see" things the way that they understand and have learned (been brainwashed). One child saw Jesus in the form of a dolphin and swam with him.
What is reality will be interesting to see.
Some crazy people believe in parallel universes. Similarly I could even envision a possibility of parallel religions. They all have good and bad within them, but God allows them all to serve his purposes.

Maybe we Christian/Jew/Islam folks will be surprised and find out that Hinduism or elephant worship is the true religion.

Format: Paperback
This is one of many Dwight Carlson's works. It is designed to be read, questioned, reread in parts, examined and passed on to a friend, or an enemy, a neighbor or a theologian but not tucked away on a shelf to accumulate dust. Heaven and that other place have become so commonplace ("For heaven's sake" or "The hell I did") that they are both overlooked, underestimated, shrugged off or they evoke either hostility or homage. This may be the 10th review, so there is plenty to read. All I should say is I dare you to read it no matter which side of the fence is yours, or if you are a devout believer or a robust unbeliever, a skeptic or an authority. It could be worth far more than the price you paid for it if it gets your attention.
