BeschreibungIntroduces the Bible's teaching about the new earth that God will create, and explores imaginatively what living on it may be like. A fascinating read.
In the wake of the disastrous events of September 11th, many people are asking questions and searching for answers about heaven and eternal life. Scripture Union have therefore reprinted this excellent, thought-provoking book which gives a trustworthy summary of the Bible's teaching on heaven, and the promise of a new earth. It provides a counter-view to traditional ideas of wispy spirits, clutching harps and singing the Hallelujah Chorus! With biblical foundations and visions of life on the new earth, readers are asked to consider what it may really be like. The final chapter explores the contemporary implications. With a brand new jacket to bring it right up to date; you may well find that this is just the book your customers are seeking in the present climate.
