There is a heavenly phenomenon that is growing at a rapid pace and that phenomenon is that heaven is a tourist attraction. The buzz comes and goes in the form of books and movies about people experiencing death and taking trips to heaven, only to return back to life and tell about it.
Honestly, it’s been a while since the latest trip was taken, but you can be sure others will soon book their ticket and become famous once they’re story is told.
Mark Hitchcock doesn’t get all the buzz and is writing to help people see that everything they need to know about heaven is revealed through scripture and that these tourist trips are not aligned with the truth that God has already revealed.
There has already been some authors who after years of fame and fortune have come forward to say that things were exaggerated and fairy-tale-like in their own imaginations. There is something going on in these stories and the fact that each story is different and does not match up to other stories reveals that heaven sure changes a lot and is not consistent in these stories.
We need to accept the fact, that we are on this earth for a purpose and we are not in the eternal life yet. Our focus ought to be on striving and serving here, but instead so many are falling for the trap of trying to go to a place that is being prepared.
I received this book from Tyndale publishing and was not required to write a positive review. These thoughts are my own, based on my personal reading of the book.
