Heaven Revealed by Paul Enns looked to be just the book I needed. While we know that our loved ones are in Heaven knowing what Heaven is like is a mystery to most of us. I needed some answers.
While I found the descriptions of Heaven lovely I began to feel as though I had to trudge through the book. Paul has written a Theology book previously and I felt as though this book continued with that writing style. I found it a bit textbook-like for a lay person.
There was a lot of repetitive writing as well. In at least three different chapters he answered the question of whether we would be able to recognize our loved ones in Heaven. While it is an important question, I felt the first time it was answered was sufficient. Many times I felt as though I was reading the same descriptions again and again.
I think this would be a good reference book for specific questions but reading it straight through was a bit of a chore.
