About the Author
Jim Osman was born in May of 1972 and has lived in Sandpoint since he was three years old. He graduated from Sandpoint High School in 1990. Jim came to know Christ through the ministry of Cocolalla Lake Bible Camp in the summer of 1987. Kootenai Community Church has always been his home church, attending Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and Youth Group. After graduating from High School, Jim attended Millar College of the Bible in Pambrun, Saskatchewan. It was at Bible College that Jim met his wife-to-be, Diedre, who was also enrolled as a student. Jim graduated with a three year diploma in April of 1993 and married Diedre in August of that same year. He returned to Millar to further his education in September of 1994 and graduated from the Fourth Year Internship Program with a Bachelor of Arts in Strategic Ministries in April of 1995. He was inducted into the Honor Society of the Association of Canadian Bible Colleges and appointed a member of Pi Alpha Mu. Jim and Diedre returned to Sandpoint where Jim began working in construction as a roofer until he was asked to take over as the preaching elder of Kootenai Community Church in December of 1996. Now he counts it his greatest privilege to be involved in ministering in the church that ministered to him for so many years. Jim loves to be outdoors, whether it is camping, hunting, or working in his garden. He enjoys bike riding and watching football, especially his favorite team, the San Francisco 49ers, for whom he has cheered since childhood. Jim and Diedre have four children: Taryn, Shepley, Ayden and Liam. They are all 49er fans! Jim is the author of Truth Or Territory: A Biblical Approach to Spiritual Warfare. You can contact Jim through Kootenai Community Church. http://www.kootenaichurch.org http://www.truthorterritory.com

I must confess that years ago I attended a church service in which Don Piper gave his testimony concerning his book 90 Minutes in Heaven. I also read Heaven is for Real. I even recommend it to people whose loved ones had died. At the time I was part of the modern pop Christian culture. I thought such books would encourage seekers to be saved and strengthens the Saints. I was wrong. Good intentions pave the way to... Three years ago I began to study reformed Baptist theology. In reformed theology the Scripture alone is the standard by which we should measure all things we call Christian. Books about heaven not based on Scripture give people a false sense of hope in a happy ever after life without requiring any faith in Jesus Christ or repentance of sins.
This book encourages discernment not emotionalism. Not all things we call spiritual are of the Holy Spirit.
This book is a short easy read; but if you prefer a Cliff Notes version just skip to chapters 4 and 5.
