Between Heaven & Earth by Steve Berger

Sometimes it is hard to remember that as followers of Jesus, earth is not our home and we wonder what heaven will be like.  Steve Berger answers many of those questions about our heavenly home in his new book, "Between Heaven and Earth".

Pastor Berger's teenage son was killed in a one-car accident.  That incident made the author question what heaven was really all about and what his son was experiencing there.

This book reminds us that heaven is a glorious place... perfect... filled with joy.  There is no sadness, want, or even boredom there.  But the book also warns that heaven isn't inevitable for everyone, and that each of us must believe and accept Jesus as our Savior.  We can't get there because we are a "good" person and have done a bunch of good stuff during our lives.  (Bunny trail: I heard Chuck Swindoll once say that if you believe that you earn heaven by your deeds, when will you know that you've done enough?)

I appreciated that Pastor Berger even wrote a little about pets in heaven.  He has a perspective different from what I was taught and I hope he's right.

I for one am looking forward to finding out for myself.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
