Books on Heaven

In light of the world spinning madly right now and Jesus’ soon return (which I hope is any day now), I like to read books that focus on the next life. I know we have to wonder about the credibility of some books of course, but with discernment, I do like to ponder about our heavenly home. So I created this post in the hopes we could all share our favorite books. (Also because I would like to read more, haha.)

My favorite book is ‘Within Heaven’s Gates’ by Rebecca Springer. It’s definitely an oldie, but my favorite. Have you read it? To sum it up, she briefly dies and experiences an unknown amount of time in Heaven, meets family and the Lord, to some of the tasks in the atmosphere of heaven. What is your go-to book when you need a little comfort? (Besides the bible I mean)

Maranantha Lord!


Randy Alcorn has an excellent book on Heaven, but my favorite is C.S. Lewis’ book, “The Last Battle”. The heaven scene isn’t until the very last chapter, but it brings me comfort every time I read it.

I believe this was a good book on a bit more in-depth study of what to expect.
