My Search for the Real Heaven
The envelope was thick, as if it had several pages inside, and the writing on the front was easily recognizable as Dad's. The memory-even now-of finding these words on that envelope is still overwhelming. 'To Steve & Kendal: This envelope is not to be opened except in my presence-if I am no longer living and this is still unopened, then destroy without opening-it is not important.-Dad'
I was in shock. Now what should I do?
What do you see in your mind's eye when you hear the word 'heaven'? Do you see transparent people floating on clouds and playing harps? Or do you imagine a perpetual praise and worship service, singing 'Holy, Holy, Holy' for all eternity? This often-promoted Christian view of eternity doesn't even appeal to the saved-much less to the
unsaved. But is this the true, biblical picture? Not even close. After his father died, author Steve Hemphill began searching the Bible for
glimpses of heaven, anything to give him comfort about his father's new home. My Search for the Real Heaven is the culmination of seven years of studying, meditating, and cross-referencing biblical findings and is unique in its Bible-based evaluation of eternity.
