Schaeffer offers insight into that heavenly desire, the heavenly location, the heavenly life, and heavenly preparation, showing how God wants that "better country" to be the passion and purpose of our present life.

I Can't Wait! Sep 17, 2008
Wow, this book paints a great picture of what heaven will be like and what we'll be like as we inhabit the present heaven upon our death, and the coming new heaven and earth. It is a delightful book, and the author, Dan Schaeffer, did a great job of describing our future with Christ in a home Jesus created individually for each one of us. This book gives us hope for the future as we watch our world literally falling apart around us. It is a must read for Christians and non-Christians alike that have questions about what heaven will be like from a Biblical perspective. I will read this book over many times. Definitely a 5-star book!
