What if heaven is more real, physical, exciting, and compelling than anything we have ever heard? And what difference would it make? Myk Habets takes readers on a journey of discovery into what God has in store for those who love him. Forget playing harps on fluffy clouds. The reality of what God has in store for us will change the way you live, work, and play. Habets answers a series of questions about heaven that are asked by children and addresses things we all want to know but are often too afraid to ask. Written in easy-to-read language and incorporating insights from some of the best Christian novelists, Habets explains the meaning of a ""Christian imagination"" and how it can be put to work in creating a vision of the future that results in a life characterized by faith, hope, and assurance. This book appeals to all who want to know what the Bible says about life after death, and finds a way to make it understandable to others. It may even make you laugh out loud along the way. ""This book is a gem and gives fresh insight into the hope that we have as believers. Myk paints a picture of the life to come that is exciting and energizing. It gives parents, and all believers alike, language to explain and discuss the incredible future that awaits us. This book is a must for all parents who want their children to better know and trust the God we worship and the future he has planned."" --Karen Warner, Baptist Churches of New Zealand, National Team Leader, Children and Family Ministries ""Here is a book that enables parents to give biblical answers to the hardest questions children typically have about life after death. And as the best children's stories are equally enjoyable for adults, so Myk Habets's book on heaven is written for Christian believers who are willing to listen to the Bible like little children: with imagination, trust, and joy. To such young theologians belong the kingdom of heaven."" --Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Myk Habets is a husband to Odele and a father to Sydney and Liam.
