4.0 out of 5 stars Knowing Heaven's attributes isn't the point, February 27, 2014
This review is from: Between Heaven and Earth: Finding Hope, Courage, and Passion Through a Fresh Vision of Heaven (Paperback)
Have you ever wondered what happens when a person dies? Tennessee pastor Steve Berger has more than just wondered - he's written an entire book about it. Between Heaven and Earth is the result of Berger's grief after his 19-year-old son's untimely death. It's expected that any minister would be interested in the supernatural, but Berger's familiarity with grief adds credibility to his work. He isn't just interested in what Heaven is like because he's a pastor. He's trusting that's where his son is.

For those seeking a better understanding of what heaven is, this book will provide some insight. A brief chapter "teases" the reader into wanting paradise. A larger chapter follows explaining some things that will and will not be found in Heaven. But the book falls short in some areas. It doesn't spend much time discussing the presence of angels nor does it speak about the transition from the physical world to the Heavenly one. Far less time than expected was spent on discussing things an average person would associate with Heaven such as streets of gold or choirs of angels.

But knowing Heaven's attributes isn't really the point of the book.

Berger's doesn't want you to just appreciate the beauty of Heaven; he wants you to be proud of your human life when you reach the other side. Between Heaven and Earth is preparation for what's to come. Berger presses readers to evaluate their earthly lives in light of the hereafter.

I received a free copy from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest thoughts on this book.
