There was a craze a few years ago with Heaven is for Real – a book that details a little boy’s death, journey to heaven, return and recollection of heaven. It divided opinion among my Christian friends, and after reading, I felt very uneasy.
The Daily Mail has picked up the story with a headline title today – as the movie is released. that’s why I felt the need to offer some tools you might find helpful in your evaluation of the issues.
While I dislike being negative or critical – I feel there is an important need for discernment on this one.
Here are several resources – you might find helpful – from those whom I will consider a worthy voice:
Tim Challies’ Book Review:
Randy Alcorn (who imho is the best theologian/writer on ‘heaven’)
Dr. John Piper in a ‘ask Pastor John’ podcast
Dr. David Platt in a Secret Church clip
After you made up your mind on the issues – think of how you can creatively engage with those around you who might go and see the movie – by presenting a Biblical depiction and understanding of heaven.
