The Glory of Heaven: The Truth About Heaven, Angels and Eternal Life
If you’re going to call it “home” for eternity, don’t you want to know what it’s like? Our pictures of life in heaven cover the range from comical to curious, from mystical to fictitious—with maybe some biblical truth thrown in. For example: We know angels will be there. But thanks to TV, we think of them as being gorgeous, white-robed beings with enormous wings. We know we will be given new bodies, but books have convinced us that that means we will we end up with a set of wings ourselves. And cartoons, movies, and modern music have portrayed those who have gone to heaven as having full knowledge of what’s happening to their loved ones on earth.
But if heaven is in your future, a Hollywood scriptwriter’s interpretation or some artist’s rendering of it just won’t do. You need to know the truth, which, ironically, is far better than anything our creative minds can imagine.
The only One who knows the glorious truth about heaven is God. And the only place to find that truth is His Word. In this book, John MacArthur takes you through those very Scriptures and opens your heart to the realities of heaven. Here is a joyous study of every Christian’s future- and a wonderful glimpse of home.
John MacArthur pastors Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, and serves as President of the Master’s College and Seminary. A well-known Bible expositor and conference speaker, he has written more than six-dozen books, including the MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series and the MacArthur Study Bible.
