The clock is ticking down to the point in September when my new book on heaven is released to an unsuspecting public. In the interim I offer the following three endorsements.
“I love Randal Rauser because he loves to ask questions, especially hard and controversial questions. But not only does he like to ask them, he is courageous enough to offer responses. This book on Heaven follows that very pattern, and even if you do not agree with all of Randal’s answers, you will find yourself enjoying how much he stretches you in the process. In the end, each of us ends up wondering how we might answer the question. Whatever your answer, it will be much more thoughtful because you have read Rauser.”

“What a fascinating book! Randal Rauser has a wonderful way of looking at issues from a different, but very interesting perspective. . . and he clearly does that in this volume. The questions he asks are intriguing. The answers he suggests are thought-provoking. The approach he takes is engaging. This book will motivate you to think more deeply about an issue you’ve always wondered about — what is Heaven really like?”
“As with any unknown, the concept and reality of heaven presents us with great mystery – but also great blessing. Our challenge is wrapping our brains and our Bibles around the questions. Randal Rauser’s book does a beautiful job of both, guiding us towards answers to our most common questions while also helping us connect how our present lives should be influenced by those truths. I would encourage believers at any age to read this book in order to learn more about what is too often unexplored: the hope and promise of a real heaven!”
