The Heaven Promise
What the Bible Says about the Life to Come
By Scot McKnight
An overview of what the Bible says about heaven, from renowned New Testament scholar Scot McKnight.
Heaven. Eternity. The Afterlife. Mention any of these ideas, and people of all ages and from all walks of life are certain to have opinions. Perhaps that's why there are so many books and films that feature heaven-and-back experiences. But how can we know if those accounts are trustworthy? Can we know what heaven will be like?
New Testament scholar and author Scot McKnight helps readers to examine the over-arching story of scripture in order to discover what awaits us. McKnight's conclusions are sure and certain: heaven isn't the construction of a fairytale or some mythical narrative - it's real; it's good; and it's the fulfilment of God's promise to us.
Author of more than 50 books including The Jesus Creed, Dr Scot McKnight currently serves as a Professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary in Lombard, Illinois. A much sought after public thinker and speaker, he blogs regularly at Patheos under the banner 'Jesus Creed'. He and his wife, Kris, enjoy life in the suburbs of Chicago.
