Imagine Heaven
All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Bestselling author John Burke is no exception. In Imagine Heaven, Burke compares over 100 gripping stories of near-death experiences (NDEs) to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of Heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will Heaven look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets? For decades, Burke has been studying accounts of survivors brought back from near death who lived to tell of both heavenly and hellish experiences. While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors--including doctors, college professors, bank presidents, people of all ages and cultures, and even blind people--point to the exhilarating picture of Heaven promised in the Bible. This thrilling journey into the afterlife will make you feel like you've been there. It will forever change the way you view the life to come and the way you live your life today. You'll discover Heaven is even more amazing than you've ever imagined.

The Great Reversal: Transparency in Heaven

by Tony Stoltzfus

An important key to seeing from heaven’s perspective is understanding the Great Reversal. What is closed and invisible on earth will be open and transparent in heaven, because we will inhabit a new creation with new dimensions. It's going to be awesome!

The easiest way to understand this is by analogy. When you go to a party or to root for your team and meet new people on earth, what part of them do you experience first? You see their hair color, whether or not they have glasses, how tall they are, or some other bodily characteristic. You see the physical part of them first. It is only as you ‘get to know’ a person over time that you experience their inner thoughts, feelings and values. Their thoughts and feelings are hidden inside the physical container of their body, and only the outside of the container is accessible to you at first.

The true self within us (containing our thoughts, feelings, memories, beliefs and desires) can only express itself through the medium of the body—the physical container. We use speech to communicate, and physical sound waves created by our bodies convey our thoughts to another. We move...

The Great Divorce
by C.S. Lewis

The Great Divorce is a classic by C.S. Lewis (the author of the Narnia books) on heaven and hell. It's probably one of my personal top ten most-loved books of all time. Lewis follows the damned as they take holidays to heaven, and are met by the redeemed who try--and mostly fail--to convince them to stay. It is an incisive take on human nature and how we cling to pride and self-righteousness even on the borders of heaven, as well as a fascinating look at heaven itself: where things are so much more real than on earth that the damned appear there as ghosts. It's a great read to flesh out your picture of what eternity is really like.

Heaven's Perspective takes you on an incredible journey of seeing life through a different lens: the eyes of heaven. Seventeen ordinary Christians share intimate stories of their most painful experiences in life--but then Jesus steps in, rewriting their suffering as glory, loss as the fuel for their destiny and filling the deepest desires of their hearts. A mother learns that the son she lost will never experience a day without her in heaven. A missionary harassed by the KGB learns the secret rescue mission Father sent him for, a thrice-divorced woman sees Jesus take her shame away for ever--and much more. You'll learn to reinterpret your own life in the light of glory while you absorb tools for doing the same with others.
