By taking the reader back to the authentic original hope that Paul was projecting to his first readers, David Lawrence argues for a fresh view of the after-life!
This thought-provoking book counters the traditional view of heaven as wispy spirits wearing golden crowns, clutching harps and singing the Hallelujah Chorus. It examines what the Bible has to say about heaven and eternal life by concentrating on the biblical promise of a new Earth, and explores the contemporary implications of this view.
“For those who have lost a loved one, this book will provide a fresh hope that nothing is lost, only soon to be gained in the renewed heaven and earth. ” – reviewer
