Heaven...it's Not the End of the World!: Biblical Promise Of A New EarthBy: David Lawrence
In an unstable and pain-filled world, how can Christians aspire to be a people of hope? Does the Bible really lead us to expect a future life in a vague, ethereal realm called 'heaven', while this earth heads for the cosmic incinerator? In the light of the threat of global terrorism, many are concerned to know about the future. In a clear and positive manner, this book emphasises the Bible's teaching about the new earth that God will create, and explores what living on it may be like. Contemporary implications of a biblical view of heaven are spelled out in the final chapter. It also holds immediate, practical implications for Christians concerned about missions, social justice, and environmental issues in today's world.
