How Can You Be Sure That Your Depiction of Heaven Is the Correct One?
Question from a reader:
Many people have questions regarding Heaven. How can you be sure that this depiction of Heaven [in your book Heaven] is the correct one?
Answer from Randy Alcorn:
The book is filled with Scripture, and I’ve labored to interpret the Bible accurately, consistently and in context. As I say in the introduction to Heaven, readers should carefully examine God’s Word and evaluate the book’s claims accordingly (Acts 17:11). If they do, I believe they will discover that the great majority of the book is solidly grounded in Scripture. This will come as a surprise to many, since the book’s conclusions about Heaven and the New Earth are dramatically different—as well as much more vivid and exciting—than what most evangelicals believe.
