With so many false views of heaven all around us, John Blanchard gets rid of any speculation and focuses, from the Bible, both on what heaven is and how people are to make their way there. The author reminds us of what is so often forgotten in relation to heaven: that the most wonderful thing about it is being with Christ. In a world that is fixated with the here-and-now, here is a reminder of what Richard Baxter used to work hard at communicating to his church members: that death is not the end of the pilgrimage, but merely the end of the beginning. In this book, there is, as there was with Baxter, a filling of both the mind and heart with a recognition of an age to come in order that Christians might live godly lives in the present age. In his introduction, John Blanchard quotes the American preacher, Al Martin, who claims, "If I took a pair of scissors and clipped out every explicit and implicit reference to heaven from Genesis to Revelation, I would be left with a very thin Bible".
Dr. Blanchard is an internationally known Christian author, he formed Popular Christian Apologetics, a project that involves writing, speaking, radio and television broadcasting and the production of a series of videotapes and audio-cassettes providing a rational defence of the Christian faith.

Published in 2000, his 655-page volume Does God believe in Atheists? was voted 'Best Christian Book ' in the inaugural UK Christian Book Awards held in 2001.Dr. Blanchard is on the Board of Governors of Highland Theological College; is a Trustee and Life Vice-President of the Young Life; Patron of Liverpool City Mission; on the Council of Reference of the Brighton and Hove City Mission; and on the Board of Reference of Orphaids, and of Longhorsely Convention Christian.
