Book Review: “Beyond Heaven’s Door”

Posted on June 4, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Beyond Heaven's DoorThoughts of heaven can be both exciting and scary. Exciting because we will be with Jesus, see loved ones again, and escape the pain of this world. But scary because there is so much about heaven that we don’t know and can’t understand. And the unknown is always scary. In his book Beyond Heaven’s Door, Max Lucado tries to help us wrap our minds around the concept of heaven (as much as humanly possible) by discussing what we do know about heaven. He points out scripture that talks about heaven and uses wonderful examples and metaphors.

I really enjoyed this book. It helped me think of things in ways I never had before and understand some concepts a little better. It is a very easy read and Lucado takes a very complicated topic and puts it on a more understandable level. Heaven and the second coming of Jesus can be very controversial topics because it is not black and white. There is so much that is unknown. But Lucado is quick to point out that some things he can only speculate based on what he does know.

This would make a great gift book for someone who has just lost a loved one or is struggling with the trials of this world and needs some encouragement.
