- What will heaven be like? What will we do? Who will we see?
- How can I become more excited about heaven as my true home?
- Is it possible that knowing more about heaven will result in greater joy and purpose in my daily life?
It's not easy separating fact from fiction when it comes to heaven, nor is it always easy to see how the afterlife can affect our lives today. After a car accident caused his nineteen-year-old son to unexpectedly enter heaven, Pastor Steve Berger chose to reject despair and commit himself to carefully studying his son's new, eternal home. He had no idea how much there was to learn, and his life hasn't been the same since. This biblical and deeply personal study of heaven will give you hope for the future.
But more than that, it will show you what it means to live "today" in light of the reality of heaven. If your view of heaven isn't life-changing, it needs to be adjusted. Let Pastor Berger's exploration of eternity fill you with overflowing hope, courage, and purpose.

- HOPE FOR THIS LIFE AND THE ONE TO COME! by NARITA on 11/17/2014
This book was definitely different than what I expected, but in a good way. When a loved one very close to you dies, you find yourself wanting to know even more about Heaven: What is it like? What are they doing? After all it isn’t just a “someday” place anymore because a very important part of you is there now. Pastor Steve Berger experienced these feelings and thoughts, after his teenage son suddenly dies in a tragic accident.
He not only does a beautiful job explaining by means of scripture what Heaven will be like, but what it will not be. I really liked the charts he had with each point and verses where the information is found. He also explains how we need to live our lives right in connection and anticipation of our future home.
As Christians earth is not our real home and all we have here is temporary. Therefore we should not put “all our eggs in one basket” so to speak by only focusing this earthly existence.
The joys and rewards in Heaven are what we look forward to but Pastor Berger clearly shows God has a purpose and work for us to do until we are called Home. We need to share Christ and offer others the opportunity and gift we have in spending eternity with God. The old saying comes to mind: ”Don’t be so heavenly minded that you aren’t any earthly good!”
You will not only learn the many challenges and struggles you will face in doing your work here but also the solutions based on the Bible. The author reassures you that you are not left to your own devices to soldier on, but reminds us the Lord left us a great helper in the Holy Spirit. He explains our relationship with Him and the power we are given through Him.
Yes, we miss our loved ones that are gone, but the promise of seeing them again and being busy for the Lord here can bring great fulfillment and joy while we wait!
This was such a well-written and informative book. I found it extremely inspiring and motivating! As always I really liked the large number of scripture references the author supplied. That makes all the difference to me! This would be a great Bible study for an individual, class, or group. It deserves to be read and studied more than once.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
- This Book Will Change Your Life! by Judy on 2/20/2014
Pastor Steve Berger really awakens the reader to the fact that we need to get off our duffs and start Harvesting. It is of the utmost importance that we don’t sit idly by and let others in the church do all the work. We have an important part to play too. Our focus should be on Heaven and not on things of this world.
I like how the author not only shared scripture but went on to tell us exactly what the scripture meant, often giving us the Greek meaning so the scripture would be crystal clear to us.
I shared with a lady at Bible study how excited I am about Heaven and even more so after reading this book. I am ready to harvest!
I highly recommend this wonderful book to everyone. It gives us joy, hope, and inspiration to make a change in our lives.
When our Pastor told us that he was starting a series on Heaven my eyes lit up and I thought oh boy I can’t wait. In the meantime I saw this book Between Heaven And Earth on LibraryThing and after reading what it was about I knew I wanted to try to win this ARC. Imagine my surprise when I did win a copy of it. A coincidence? I think not!
Thank you Bethany House Publishers and author Steve Berger for allowing me to read and review this great book. The opinions expressed are mine alone.
