This children's picture book can help your child understand what the Bible says about Heaven and the New Earth yet to come—and why they're worth the wait.
With Doron Ben-Ami, illustrator.
Nathan loved baseball. He watched it on TV...went to games...read books about it...collected baseball cards. And he talked and dreamed with his grandfather about running the bases. Gramps always told him, "I'm pretty sure our best baseball is still ahead of us." Nathan loved that idea.
Let Randy Alcorn help your child understand what the Bible says about Heaven and the New Earth yet to come—and why they're worth the wait.

What is the difference between the two illustrated children's storybooks about Heaven: Wait Until Then and Tell Me About Heaven?
What both books have in common is a grandfather and grandson discussing Heaven. From there, the differences are pretty major. Wait Until Then is a children's picture book of 2,000 words. Tell Me About Heaven has 14,000 words, is seven times longer, and is long enough to be a sustained story.
Wait Until Then focuses on whether a handicapped boy and a weak grandfather, who uses a walker and is dying of cancer, will one day play baseball. The boy's disability is central to the book, and his parents and siblings are all an important part of the story. Tell Me About Heaven is about a different boy (not handicapped), a different grandfather (not sick or dying), and set out in the country with just the boy and grandfather. It doesn't involve baseball and has many different settings.
Wait Until Then has a traditional "each painting captures the story" approach. Tell Me About Heaven's art is not illustrative of the story itself but of certain concepts discussed by grandfather and grandson. They are more like illustrations of the book's theology, not immediate scenes (except the book ends).
It is Randy's hope that both books will serve as resources for families as they teach their children truths about Heaven.
