"Heaven Is A Far Better Place", features what the Bible teaches about Heaven, is written by Eryl Davies. "Christians should think more - much more - about heaven. This simple, practical and heart-warming study by Eryl Davies will surely help many to do so. Their journey home will be greatly enriched as a result." - John Blanchard. Told by his doctor that he was going to die soon, Billy Bray, the nineteenth-century Cornish evangelist immediately, shouted out with joy, 'Glory! Glory be to God! I shall soon be in heaven.' A few days before his death in March 1981, Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, whose powerful preaching ministry spanned several decades, requested his family, 'Do not pray for healing. Do not hold me back from the glory.' Were these men right in thinking they would go straight to heaven when they died? What will heaven be like? Is it a place, or just a condition? What shall we do there? Does everyone go there? If not, how can we be sure of reaching heaven? All these questions, and many more, are tackled by Eryl Davies in this thought-provoking book.
Above all, he encourages Christians to look forward to the joys of heaven, and in so doing to experience in this life a foretaste of it through a deeper fellowship with God and his people.
