The Geography of Heaven by Mark Johansen A REVIEW

If we believe that Heaven is real, we should not expect it to look like a cartoon. The fairy tale picture of Heaven as a place where the souls of the departed have tiny wings and fly around on clouds, wearing white robes and playing harps, has very little to do with what the Bible says about Heaven. The Bible describes an Eternity more complex place than most people think. It is not just Heaven and Hell. The Bible also talks about Sheol, Hades, Tartarus, Gehenna, the Lake of Fire, the Abyss, New Jerusalem, Paradise, New Heaven and New Earth. And here’s a funny point: Nowhere does the Bible say that anyone goes to Heaven when they die. That’s someplace else.

I am a software engineer by profession. Sadly, I make far too little money from writing to quit my day job. My first writing efforts were for computer magazines: Microcomputing, Micro, Ahoy, Dr Dobbs Journal, etc. Alas, the first three of those are out of print and the last is, I think, now on-line only. I also wrote an editorial for World, a news magazine, and a couple of articles for Creation, an Australian science and nature magazine. (Creation changed some of my American-English spellings to Australian-English. I tell people it was my first foreign-language publication.) I've contributed chapters to books on criminology, economics, and civil rights.
I was born in New York, spent most of my life in Ohio, and now live in Michigan.

  The Geography of Heaven by Mark Johansen is a very interesting, thought-provoking book. I can tell a lot of research and thinking went into this book.  Mark Johansen doesn’t believe that the saved will go to Heaven or that there isn’t such a place.
  He says God is on His heavenly throne, but Christians will either go to the New Earth or the New Jerusalem. First the saved will go to a place called Abraham’s Bosom until judgment day. Also the unsaved will stay in a place called the Pit until they are cast into the Lake of Fire.
  He brings up many points and scripture verses that prove his theory. I find this book quite interesting and would love for all of you to read it and give me your opinion. What Mark Johansen writes really makes sense to me, but I will be happy whenever I’m at as long as Jesus is there. So I will recommend this book. It will keep you guessing and get you to study your Bible to find the answers.
