- Publisher In an unstable and pain-filled world, how can Christians aspire to be a people of hope? Does the Bible really lead us to expect a future life in a vague, ethereal realm called 'heaven', while this earth heads for the cosmic incinerator? In the light of the threat of global terrorism, many are concerned to know about the future. In a clear and positive manner, this book emphasises the Bible's teaching about the new earth that God will create, and explores what living on it may be like. Contemporary implications of a biblical view of heaven are spelled out in the final chapter. It also holds immediate, practical implications for Christians concerned about missions, social justice, and environmental issues in today's world.

- Publisher Introduces the Bible's teaching about the new earth that God will create, and explores imaginatively what living on it may be like. A fascinating read. In the wake of the disastrous events of September 11th, many people are asking questions and searching for answers about heaven and eternal life. Scripture Union have therefore reprinted this excellent, thought-provoking book which gives a trustworthy summary of the Bible's teaching on heaven, and the promise of a new earth. It provides a counter-view to traditional ideas of wispy spirits, clutching harps and singing the Hallelujah Chorus With biblical foundations and visions of life on the new earth, readers are asked to consider what it may really be like. The final chapter explores the contemporary implications. With a brand new jacket to bring it right up to date; you may well find that this is just the book your customers are seeking in the present climate.
