FOR THE BACK COVER:

Often we hear that Christians spend too much time thinking about heaven. Actually, the opposite is true. Far too many of today’s believers are uninformed about heaven and fail to understand why we should be yearning for the fullness that God has for us in eternity. Paul Enns offers a corrective to our neglect of heaven in Heaven Revealed. You will be greatly blessed by this book.

Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

--

Paul Enns has thought carefully about heaven ever since his beloved wife, Helen, died unexpectedly a few years ago. The result is a book that is a wonderful blend of Biblical insight and human longings, coupled with the personal assurance that we shall meet one another again in heaven. This is a delightful read for those who have lost loved ones, and for those of us who need an injection of biblical hope during these times of worldly struggles and distress. Paul has blessed the body of Christ by opening a window into the life beyond. Just read the first few pages, and you will want to read to the end.

This book was written in the context of personal pain and loss; the death of a beloved spouse. It is marked by biblical conviction, theological faithfulness and pastoral sensitivity. Those who read it will have their minds instructed, their hearts comforted, and their wills fortified as they long to see King Jesus face to face.

By Doug Hibbard VINE VOICE on April 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
Now, to the question of whether or not you should buy this book. I'll admit that my first reaction to the book's title was wrong. Right now, the publishing world seems to be awash with books about going to heaven and coming back. These books border somewhere between entertaining but questionable to outright nonsense.

However, Paul Enns is not claiming to be reporting what heaven was like when he dropped in once. He knows people that are there, and he even knows a couple that have seen some things of heaven, and even one who has been there. This book is his effort to help us understand what the people that are there are most likely experiencing, and what those who have seen it said.

Who does he reference that has seen it?

One's name is Isaiah, another's name is John. The one who has been there? His name is Jesus (from Nazareth, thus answering the classic question "Does anything good come from Nazareth?" with a resounding "The only Good does.")

This book is Paul Enns' viewpoint on the Scriptures that discuss what eternity looks like. He works through various passages in the Old and New Testaments, using them to illuminate eternity.

A side note is needed here: he makes clear that his interest is in addressing eternity for believers in Jesus Christ. I found no effort to discuss the end result for unbelievers. This book is not a counterpoint to Rob Bell's Love Wins.

Enns is careful with Scripture, and works to explain his views alongside his personal longings. The book echoes with his longing to be there, to be with her, and to be with Christ. He works through the various questions of heaven: What will we be like? What will we do? Will we know each other?

His answers come through in very comforting language.

When I first started reading this book, I realized that I really didn't know much about Heaven itself. Yes I know that everyone who loves Jesus and has given themselves over to God will eventually go there. However, beyond that, Heaven was an extremely mysterious concept.

Paul starts out by telling us why he wanted to know what Heaven was. He had been married to Helen for years. After she passed away, he felt lonely and lost. He still had his belief in God. However, he really missed Helen. So he decided he wanted to learn more about Heaven in the attempts of understanding where Helen was.

Paul discusses the fact that there are three different ways in which Heaven is referenced in the Bible. He then goes into detail on each. He further expounds on how we raise up to Heaven and then what our existence will be like once we are there.

One thing that I really liked was that he backed everything up with Bible references. However, he does not list the verses themselves, just the references (such as 2 Cor 2:12) so that you can look them up yourself.

In conjunction with the Wakela's World Disclosure Statement, I received a product in order to enable my review. No other compensation has been received. My statements are an honest account of my experience with the brand. The opinions stated here are mine alone.

I met Dr. Paul Enns many years ago while his oldest son and I were attending Dallas Theological Seminary. Since that day almost 25 years ago, I've not failed to grow and be encouraged by everything that Dr. Enns has written. His newest volume called Heaven Revealed is no exception.

Prompted by the sudden death of his wife of forty five years, Enns addresses thirteen questions about heaven while providing sound biblical and theological answers.
What is the meaning of heaven?
What is the transition to heaven?
Where is heaven?
What is the kingdom Christ promised?
What kind of body will we have?
What is the relationship of the millennium to heaven?
What and when are the new heaven and the new earth?
What will heaven and the new earth look like?
What will life be like in heaven?
What is the continuity between this life and life in heaven?
What will we do in heaven?
What will our relationships with others be like?
What will our relationship with God be like?

While holding to a dispensational interpretation of Scripture, Enns interacts with a number of familiar texts regarding heaven while offering some new deductions as to what heaven will be like. I believe Enns' exegesis was particularly engaging in the chapters detailing the continuity between this life and life in heaven, the relationship of the millennium to heaven, and the details of the new heaven and new earth.

My only criticism of the book is that Enns seems to be redundant in several of the chapters. While not a lengthy book by any means (200 pages), Enns could have easily reduced the thirteen chapters to ten and shaved fifty pages from the book's length.

I highly recommend Heaven Revealed to any serious student of the Scriptures as well as to anyone who has ever wondered, "What will heaven be like?"

Heaven is a subject that has captivated countless number of people around the world for centuries. It is a place that conjures up a series of questions, ranging from who will enter (and who will not), location, sights, sounds, duration and activities. As a result of such questions, people have arrived at a variety of conclusions. Unfortunately, many of these conclusions have not been rooted in the witness of Scripture, and have proved to be little more than fanciful and inaccurate speculations.

With these things in mind, I was delighted to see that Dr. Paul Enns (minister through Biblical Training & Leadership Development, Idlewood Baptist Church, Tampa, Florida, and serves as professor and director of the Tampa Extension, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) had developed a new book on the subject.

After suddenly losing his wife Helen after 45 years of marriage, Enns went looking for answers about the afterlife. His search began and ended within the pages of Scripture and theological exploration.

Enns confronted the same questions that many of us have about the afterlife, and specifically about the prospect of heaven. He addressed these questions in this book.

Where is heaven? What kind of body will we have? What will the new heaven and earth look like? What will life be like in heaven? What will we do in heaven? What will our relationships with others be like?

The book spells out his answers to these questions in a way that is highly readable and clear. For instance, in chapter 12, he explains that, in continuity with our earthly life, we will retain our distinctive identities in heaven, and will be known as we are now.
