According to the pollsters a belief in Heaven is actually on the increase. Although the thought of heaven may be popular, probably less thought is given to how to get there than your annual holiday. It is only when events rudely awaken us that we are pressed into asking some of the serious questions about the place where most people expect to go. Sometimes the prompt is our children with a plaintive "Where is Grandma now?" Mostly, though, thoughts of heaven and more particularly the death that precedes going there are pushed out by the hedonistic lifestyle that most of us live. If the purpose of life is simply to enjoy it, then an absence of life (i.e. death) is a recipe for no fun at all! But still we believe in heaven.
In this contemporary classic Scott and Sinclair discuss why no one really dies of 'natural causes', gives true/false answers to the reasons people think will get them to heaven, explains what the Bible has to say about the future, what heaven is like and how to be ready for death.
Facing death enables us to face life � knowing more about your future makes an enormous difference to the present. It's time you looked your future square in the face and thought 'What does it hold for me?'
