Item description for Heaven : It's Not The End Of The World by David M. D. Lawrence...
Does the Bible really lead us to expect a future life in a vague, ethereal realm called 'heaven', whilst this earth heads for the cosmic incinerator?
Publishers Description 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Heaven : It's Not The End Of The World?
Wonderful little book Jun 29, 2004
This book offers a concise, highly-readable description of what heaven might be like. Solidly grounded in biblical teachings, and filled with scriptural references, Lawrence argues that traditional Christian views of an otherworldly, ethereal heaven are not true to the Bible. Instead, he provides pictures of what a "new earth" might look like. I would recommend this book for any person interested in taking a closer look at Christian teachings about what happens when we die, anyone dealing with the loss of the loved one, or anyone open to imagining the beauty of the world to come.
