Fascinating! 'Imagine Heaven' Devotional - by John & Kathy Burke

Cover Art

About the book:

Scripture tells us to "Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth" (Col. 3:2 NLT). But how do we think about a place we've never seen?
In 2015, John Burke's Imagine Heaven uncovered an exhilarating picture of Heaven, drawn from Scripture and illustrated with true stories of near-death experiences. This New York Times bestseller offered real-life evidence that supported readers' faith and answered some of their most pressing questions about life after death.

Now you can meditate daily on the realities of Heaven with the Imagine Heaven Devotional. Each of the one hundred devotions in this book includes a near-death story from Imagine Heaven, Scripture, and a prayer, as well as brand-new stories and content that will help you meditate on the life to come as you apply God's heavenly promises to how you live life today.

My review:

This was an amazing book!  I was encouraged to remember that there's so much more life to come in Heaven and what an awesome place it is.  The stories and quotes from various people who had died and gone to Heaven were fascinating, especially when some of their descriptions matched so closely!  I haven't read the original book yet but I'd heard of a few of the people featured here as I'd read other books by or about them.  I would say the overarching theme is God's love, how deep and overwhelming it was to people, how accepted and unconditionally loved they felt, even as they had "life reviews" that weren't always very positive as they saw how they had treated people throughout their life.  There were cool stories about interactions with angels, loved ones who had died and were guiding them around Heaven and of course, meeting Jesus face to face.  The beauty of Heaven sounds amazing.  The devotions were great reminders to lean on God for strength in our weaknesses and to look forward to Heaven where our questions will be answered, our pain erased and where we'll feel we're finally home.  I highly recommend it!

I received this book from Baker Books.  I was not required to write a positive review and was not compensated for this.  This is my honest opinion.
