Heaven isnt just a dream; its a promise!
For far too long, weve talked about heaven as if it were a dream or someplace that only exists in fairytales. We want to believe its real, but with such an expanse of contradictory information, its difficult to know what to believe.
To add even more confusion, we are left to sift through the tales of individuals who have crossed over and returned. With so many competing narratives and accounts based on what many think are beyond-death experiences, wouldnt it be nice to have a straight forward examination of what the Bible has to say about heaven?
Best-selling author and New Testament scholar Scot McKnight thought so too, which is why he wrote The Heaven Promise.
McKnight, who has penned more than 50 books, including The Jesus Creed, has had a fascination with heaven since he was a child. As a professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary, McKnight is no stranger to academic engagement and scholarly discourse. However; as an ordained deacon, McKnight is well accustomed with the concerns of the everyday thinker. The Heaven Promise represents the perfect blend of thoughtful research coupled with an easily digestible presentation.
My hope, McKnight shares, is that people will be hopeful about heaven.
The Heaven Promise offers an infusion of hope alongside a healthy anticipation of eternity.
After all, heaven isnt just a dream; its a promise.
