Reviews - What do customers think about Heaven for Kids?
Heaven is....well, Heaven Oct 31, 2008
I purchased this book for my 12 year old grandson and he really enjoyed it. He was the one who gave it the 5 stars. I have not started reading my book yet. He said that it did answer questions that he had had and was thrilled when he discovered that his Dad's dog would be in Heaven waiting for him! Truth be known, I was originally drawn to the book because of the author's last name which just happens to be my maiden name!
This book has all the Biblical answers about Heaven and it is easy to read & understand Sep 22, 2008
We own the hardback book Heaven - this paperback Heaven for Kids - and the 64-page booklet made for sharing Heaven: Biblical Answers to Common Questions and they are ALL wonderful.
Heaven, the original, longer, hardback book, is a much more in-depth treatment and argument for understanding heaven scripturally (physical, all that is good, richness) rather than how Heaven has been defined culturally (white, fluffy, harps). I have enjoyed this book Heaven for Kids because it was so much easier to get through and quickly understand than the big book (whether kid or adult ;).
This series of books is endorsed by Hank Hanigraff of the Christian Research Institute which I view as the litmus test of bible-based trustworthiness. Thus, I feel confident in its assertions and presentations.
Will there be dogs in heaven? Well God created them and called them good ~ why wouldn't there be? Learn more about the current earth, the new heaven & new earth, and all that God has revealed about life eternal in this wonderful book.
A Good Book Aug 21, 2008
I read the adult version of this book and really got a lot out of it. So much so that I felt compelled to buy this for my kids. My spouse and I read this to our kids and that was a good thing. Our oldest is 11 and we had to go slow and explain a lot of the thoughts and concepts in the book.
I'm not sure if our kids captured the exciting vision of hope that the author intended to convey, but it was a good family experience to read it to them.
I gave the book 4 stars because younger kids may have a harder time grasping the vision; therefore, I would now say that this book is more appropriately aimed at kids in their young teens although they may chafe at the "For Kids" tag on the cover. I should note that the content of this kid's version is totally solid and that I thoroughly enjoyed the adult version of this book as well.
Great resource Apr 24, 2008
When we found out my father in law was dying of pancreatic cancer, one of our main concerns was how to deal with it with our kids. This book was a great resource, especially for our introspective 11 year old. She was able to read it on her own and ponder the chapters. It gave her great comfort to know that because of Grandpa's faith in Christ, he has a promise of eternity in heaven - free from any more pain or suffering. She also like to read that heaven is going to be exciting and active - not a bunch of cloud-sitting and harp playing. In fact she said, "Now that I've learned more about what heaven will be like, I'm a little jealous that Grandpa gets to go so soon." I highly recommend for any family in a similar situation.
