I want to know everything the scriptures say about Heaven, the new earth, and life after death. I am also interested in what certain scholars have to say on these topics, such as those included in Eternal Perspectives: A Collection of Quotations on Heaven, The New Earth, and Life After Death---From Augustine, Aquinas, Calvin, Wesley, Spurgeon, Lewis, and many more.

Since this is a large book, I originally started out going from A-Z, page one, through the book. Then I got sidetracked with some specific topics that I wanted to check out. Finally I came up with a system that worked for me. I read the topics that were most relevant to me at the moment, marking them off as 'Completed' in the Table of Contents. It's amazing that there is always a topic that is more interesting than the others. My most pressing interest changes from day to day. Fortunately for us, the Table of Contents has broken it down in easier-to-digest bites so we can go directly to where we need to go when we need to go there.

We also can go to the index and find some short but insightful quotes from Billy Graham or C. S. Lewis, for example. We can do the same with numerous other pastors, evangelists, and scholars. There are quotes from people I've known and read about for years, from some I've just recently been learning about, and some who are new to me. I'm pretty sure I will want to read more from some of these people. The book has given the references to make that easy for us to do. There are gems from Dwight L. Moody, Jonathan Edwards, lots from Randy Alcorn, and introducing each topic we have relevant scriptures. This is an amazing resource for those of us who look forward to being there with our loved ones.

This is the big book (650+ pages) of quotations about Heaven, the resurrection, New Jerusalem and New Earth. I was surprised to find a section for Hell as well. So I guess Mr. Alcorn decided to cover both sides. Each section starts with 6-12 verses from the Bible on the subject, then pages of quotes that cover (not in any order I've seen) writers from the Early Church Fathers all the way to the present, then a dozen or so quotes from Mr. Alcorn's books. {Surely you didn't think he would not quote himself?} It is surprising to one extent, that everybody agrees over 2.000 years of the church. Now if only I could get the local churches to agree about anything.

Randy Alcorn, an expert in the study of heaven, has done a great job collecting, cataloguing, and compiling quotations about heaven. He draws upon authors and scholars who have written on the subject since ancient times. He did use some of his own quotations but did it appropriately so that it did not seem self-serving. It is a reference book that should be available to families who discuss death and dying, eternity and heaven.

As a lover of good quotations, I admire Randy Alcorn's project in compiling by topic a generous collection of quotes on Heaven. While the afterlife is touched upon in most systematic theology texts, it is not given much space. This is not a book to read cover-to-cover, but one to consult whenever the subject of Heaven comes up. I purchased it to help me prepare a sermon series on metaphors of Heaven, and it has proved to be my best resource. While most of the quotes are evangelical, other views are given space. This is not an scholarly book, yet one that covers a wide range of topics, and the result is an extremely helpful addition to any pastor's study, and a book that ought to be in every church library.

This is a very nice book. However, keep in mind that much of the content are quotes from reliable, ,Godly people and their personal opinion and interpretation of heaven, based on scripture. Alcorn is very clear also that you realize this and is not misleading at all, which is refreshing. We'll know some day, but meanwhile, it is a sumptuous book on what's to be....

The primary focus of this books with its numerous quotes is to encourage the believer to maintain an eternal perspective, and not to place so much emphasis on this world. It is very well written, and it is quite encouraging. I had read passages out of the book previously, and decided that it was a "must have." I have not been disappointed. It lifts my spirit and encourages my heart to remain faithful, and to keep my eyes heavenward.

I've only begun reading this book but already look forward to picking it up and reading a little more each day. Such new and interesting thoughts about Heaven and what it will be like, and what we will be like. I've never thought about these things in such depth before. Nothing is fanatic, rather it is Biblically based thinking. Love the book.
