About

As Christians, we know someday we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven. And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven. In this enlightening book, bestselling author Dr. Robert Jeffress opens the Scriptures to answer ten fascinating questions about heaven:

· Is heaven a real place or is it a state of mind?
· Who will be in heaven?
· Have some people already visited heaven?
· What will we do in heaven?
· Will we know one another in heaven?
· What difference does a future heaven make in my life today?
· Do Christians immediately go to heaven when they die?
· Do people in heaven know what is happening on earth?
· Will heaven be the same for everyone?
· How can I prepare for my journey to heaven?


"My friend Robert Jeffress has done a masterful job of helping believers think biblically about that future home Jesus is preparing for every believer."--Dr. David Jeremiah, founder and president, Turning Point Ministries

"Our life on earth is but a brief wisp of vapor compared to the eternity of heaven, so it makes sense to learn as much as possible about our everlasting home. I highly recommend A Place Called Heaven to every Christ-follower. I also recommend it to those who do not yet follow Christ, as it will give the skeptical reader solid, biblical answers to their toughest questions about the world beyond the grave."--Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"We're all curious about heaven, and thankfully this book uses biblical teaching to enable us to get a peek behind the curtain. Read it to be reminded that the best is yet to come."--Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, pastor emeritus, The Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois

"A clarion call for us all to look up and consider afresh how much God loves us and how profoundly our lives on earth matter. May you devour these pages, as I did, and begin to live more purposefully with eternity in mind."--Susie Larson, talk radio host, national speaker, and author of Your Powerful Prayers 

"A thousand years from today you will be alive . . . somewhere. No one is really ready to live life to the fullest until he or she is ready to die. Robert Jeffress opens biblical truth with the desired end that you can have the assurance you will live forever in . . . A Place Called Heaven."--Dr. O. S. Hawkins, president/CEO, GuideStone Financial Resources, Dallas, Texas

"C. S. Lewis famously observed, 'If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were those who thought most of the next." Our problem is not that we think too much about heaven but rather think too little of it. In A Place Called Heaven, my friend Robert Jeffress has done a masterful job of helping believers think biblically about that future home Jesus is preparing for every believer."

Dr. David Jeremiah, founder and president, Turning Point Ministries

"When it comes to the bottom line for Christians, heaven is it. Our life on earth is but a brief wisp of vapor compared to the eternity of heaven, so it makes sense to learn as much as possible about our everlasting home. Dr. Jeffress does a stellar job of answering peoples' questions about this marvelous place beyond our tombstones, and I highly recommend A Place Called Heaven to every Christ-follower. I also recommend it to those who do not yet follow Christ, as it will give the skeptical reader solid, biblical answers to their toughest questions about the world beyond the grave!"

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, pastor emeritus, The Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois

"Why is it that most of us know so little about heaven? If how we live here directly impacts how we live there--in eternity--shouldn't we know more about the consequences of this life and about the place God is preparing for His heirs? I'm so excited about this book you hold in your hands. Dr. Jeffress is a strong Christian voice in this day of chaos. And A Place Called Heaven is a clarion call for us all to look up and consider afresh how much God loves us and how profoundly our lives on earth matter. Jesus is preparing a place in heaven for you, a place that fits you perfectly. Imagine! May you devour these pages, as I did, and begin to live more purposefully with eternity in mind."

Susie Larson, talk radio host, national speaker, and author of Your Powerful Prayers 

"Robert Jeffress gets right to the point--in fact, he gets to ten of the main points people need to know and believe if they expect to go to heaven. A Place Called Heaven is clear and biblical in its approach. This is a good read for all and a great tool to use in sharing the good news of the gospel with others."

Dr. Mark L. Bailey, president, Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas, Texas

"A thousand years from today you will be alive . . . somewhere. No one is really ready to live life to the fullest until he or she is ready to die. Robert Jeffress opens biblical truth with the desired end that you can have the assurance you will live forever in . . . A Place Called Heaven."

Dr. O. S. Hawkins, president/CEO, GuideStone Financial Resources, Dallas, Texas

"Dr. Robert Jeffress not only continues to have one of the most remarkable preaching ministries in America but also makes it available through the publication of many of those messages. The present book on heaven is no exception. The vast majority seem to fear preaching on eternal destiny and are much more moved by the social agendas of the day. But A Place Called Heaven answers serious questions that the average believer desperately wants to know. Further, this tome will generate a desire on the part of those who read it to experience for themselves the glories of heaven. The chapter on what people will do in heaven is one of the most perceptive I have ever read."

Dr. Paige Patterson, president, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft. Worth, Texas
