In the authors' distinctive, honest, but not in-your-face-religion style of writing, this book tries to point out the path of preparedness for Heaven. There is enough scripture to validate issues but it is not a Bible study. It's more. Not a devotional--more. Not a fictional story--but the more is truth from numerous antidotes of both authors, stories of others discovered through their ministries and lives, and gospel stories. Experiences are used to teach. The more comprising this book provides inspiration as well as discipleship.
Use "Getting to Heaven" as a study rather than an evangelistic tool. It's for believers who struggle or question. Its 29 quick chapters could easily serve as a daily devotion over a month's period. All chapters end with questions and thought provoking departing instructions. Try reading chapter 29 first and again after reading all the chapters.
"Nobody wanders into Heaven," says the book, as it gives suggestions on how to trust God in chaos prior to getting to Heaven. It suggests that all earthly life is a second chance to get ready.Read more ›
Surely there are better ambassadors with better advice for getting into heaven.
