Heaven for Kids

What happens when we die? Do people in heaven remember life on earth? Will animals live in the new heavens and new earth? What will we do in heaven? These are not just questions for adults. Many kids are asking these questions too.

Here’s a free book on Heaven by Randy Alcorn that addresses some of the common questions and misunderstandings about heaven. It’s geared toward a younger audience but it has something we can all learn!

If you’re interested in a fuller treatment of the subject, check out Alcorn’s larger volume on Heaven. I also heartily recommend Paul Enn’s Heaven Revealed and Erwin Lutzer’s One Minute After You Die.
These are far more biblical than the runaway bestsellers 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper or Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. Why expend a lot of time reading about subjective dreams/experiences/visions when we have “something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place” (2 Pet. 1:19)?

Paul says a crown of righteousness awaits all who love and anticipate the Lord's appearing (2 Tim. 4:8). Do you long for the return of our Lord? This book is sure to get your family excited for our heavenly home.
