Randy Alcorn, who is both author and narrator, speaks with warmth as he provides a sampling of questions and answers from his book HEAVEN. In a seamless narration he explains why we will meet our loved ones in heaven and whether we will recognize them. He richly describes the splendor of heaven, from streets of gold to walls of precious stones. With an effortless delivery he explains how we can be sure we will go to heaven, then explores the differences between earthly time and heaven, where time is never measured. His interpretation of whether our beloved pets will meet us there is fascinating. Other questions--will we have bodies?-- how we will travel?-- will we bored?--are fascinating.

Biblical Answers to Common Questions about Heaven by Randy Alcorn is simply a beautiful book. It is very short, just 60 pages.
Some of the questions are: Will Heaven (the New Earth) Be an Actual Place?
Will we Remember What Happened on Earth?
Will There Be Animals on the New Earth?
Will There Be Marriage and Family in Heaven?
Many such questions and very well thought out answers.
One of my favorite parts in is the chapter about recognizing people in Heaven. Remember at the Transfiguration, the disciples recognized Moses and Elijah, even though they weren’t told who the two men were, and they couldn’t have previously known what they looked like.
Just reading this precious book has heightened my longing for Heaven. What a wonderful place it will be. Can’t wait. Highly recommend this sweet book.
