"Why is it that most of us know so little about heaven? If how we live here directly impacts how we live there--in eternity--shouldn't we know more about the consequences of this life and about the place God is preparing for His heirs? I'm so excited about this book you hold in your hands. Dr. Jeffress is a strong Christian voice in this day of chaos. And A Place Called Heaven is a clarion call for us all to look up and consider afresh how much God loves us and how profoundly our lives on earth matter. Jesus is preparing a place in heaven for you, a place that fits you perfectly. Imagine! May you devour these pages, as I did, and begin to live more purposefully with eternity in mind."
"When it comes to the bottom line for Christians, heaven is it. Our life on earth is but a brief wisp of vapor compared to the eternity of heaven, so it makes sense to learn as much as possible about our everlasting home. Dr. Jeffress does a stellar job of answering peoples' questions about this marvelous place beyond our tombstones, and I highly recommend A Place Called Heaven to every Christ-follower. I also recommend it to those who do not yet follow Christ, as it will give the skeptical reader solid, biblical answers to their toughest questions about the world beyond the grave!"
“A thousand years from today you will be alive . . . somewhere. No one is really ready to live life to the fullest until he or she is ready to die. Robert Jeffress opens biblical truth with the desired end that you can have the assurance you will live forever in . . . A Place Called Heaven.”
"Robert Jeffress gets right to the point--in fact, he gets to ten of the main points people need to know and believe if they expect to go to heaven. A Place Called Heaven is clear and biblical in its approach. This is a good read for all and a great tool to use in sharing the good news of the gospel with others."
“We’re all curious about heaven, and thankfully this book uses biblical teaching to enable us to get a peek behind the curtain. Read it to be reminded that the best is yet to come.”
"C. S. Lewis famously observed, 'If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were those who thought most of the next." Our problem is not that we think too much about heaven but rather think too little of it. In A Place Called Heaven, my friend Robert Jeffress has done a masterful job of helping believers think biblically about that future home Jesus is preparing for every believer."
