Item description for The Law of Rewards: Giving What You Can't Keep to Gain What You Can't Lose by Randy Alcorn...
Overview Randy Alcorn makes a clear and compelling case for an under-emphasized scriptural principle: that believers will receive differing rewards in heaven depending on their actions and choices here on earth.
Publishers Description What motivates you? Do you ever long for approval? Would you like to hear someone you love and respect say, "Well done"? Do you yearn for wealth, influence, or pleasures? As Christians, we tend to dismiss these longings as superficial, even sinful. But best-selling author Randy Alcorn explains that God created us with these desires. It's all part of his incentive plan. In this fascinating look at God's motivational system, you'll find out why he wired us for rewards, what kind he offers, and when and how we can claim them. God doesn't guarantee power or possessions or pleasures in this world, but he promises extravagant rewards in the next. Discover how the way you live and give today determines the way you'll be rewarded in heaven-- for eternity.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Law of Rewards: Giving What You Can't Keep to Gain What You Can't Lose?
God 's Rewards and You. Mar 18, 2010
this book hasa helped me to better understand what God has in mind for me. For him to reward me with his riches in thy Kingdom.
And after entrance into heaven? Jul 7, 2008
If we accept George Barna's statistics on Christian giving, then Randy Alcorn's book might be the panacea. Alcorn's treatment and explanation of Christian rewards in heaven is eye opening. He changes the perspective of simply "making heaven our home" to truly desiring to hear the words "Well done, thou good and faithful servant". For that reason, the book should be handed out with the certificate of membership and the right hand of fellowship. Excellent read. Potentially life changing!
Excellent Sep 13, 2007
This is one of those rare books that you feel you need to read every year. How often do we talk about rewards in heaven? NOt often, because we don't understand how some might be rewarded more than others. How do you improve on heaven? This book is eye-opening and stimulating. Rewards are God's idea Alcorn points out. I strongly recommend the book...every year in fact.
Think beyond the grave Nov 5, 2006
For a Christian, this book presents a compelling case to consider our giving as an investment into the next world. Since we are going to leave it all behind at death anyway, we should carefully examine where we are investing our material resources while we still have control and stewardship of our assets.
No book has ever had such an impact on my life! Its Changed Me. Apr 24, 2006
This book is recommended for all Christians. Never have I ever been so encouraged to give. I used to work at a minimum paying job where I managed to sacrifice over $4,000 in one years giving. Minimum pay doesn't pay much and it was quite a sacrifice. But I knew that I couldn't take it with me, so I sent it on ahead. I'm now a missionary and I owe it to this book because it transformed my mind and renewed me as a person. It was a great tool in God's Hands. Ps.
