Reviews - What do customers think about Heaven: Better by Far: Answers to Questions about the Believer's Final Hope?
Scholarly, Insightful, Reflective Aug 16, 2005
Robert K. DeVries tells us in the foreward that Sanders' motivation for writing this book was that as he neared the end of his life, he was researching his future destination. In so doing he brought passion to the work, supplemented by the skills of a scholar. There are various types of books on heaven, some very subjective in their approach, others from a more analytical view. This book presents a look at the evidence, but with zeal and enthusiasm.
He has done a commendable job of reviewing the literature of what other scholars have said on the subject and adds his own research to what he has found. He even presents varying viewpoints on different issues before saying where he stands and why.
The vast majority of this book is excellent. Toward the end I find a weakness. He interprets certain passages in the Bible as symbolic which I see as literal. I think he is just wrong. Other sections of the book, however are quite good.
