Have you ever wondered what heaven will be like? Some of us imagine gold streets, while others can’t imagine a heaven without grass, trees and animals; still others imagine energy and knowledge. None of us know what heaven is like accept that it will be perfect and we will dwell with God.
“No one has seen
No ear has heard
No mind has conceived
What God has prepared
For those who love him”
We all have questions about God and heaven. The author discussed the question, “Will atheist go to heaven? The author felt the question was/is the key to “understanding everything about God and heaven.” His answer was very simple, “why would an atheist want to go there?” Why would an atheist want to spend eternity with God when he does not believe he exists and hates the mere mention of his name.
One of the most important concepts of this book was the difference between religious and spiritual. This is the part of the book that grabbed me. Religious is man-made. Spiritual is God. I’ve recently questioned religion/religious. I’ve come to realize I want to be a spiritual person not a religious person. I have found denominations to be too political. It is unfortunate but the emphasis becomes how can I get ahead? Too often the “church loses sight of the purpose.”
There is so much more in this book that I haven’t even touched on. Mark B. Reed offers readers a tool to discuss and ponder heaven. His style is simple and easy to understand. He keeps his text on a lay level. The reader does not have to have a seminary degree to understand Rehearsing For Heaven. I am impressed with this book and the message it contains.
