The most profound book I have read in years It took my faith to a new and deeper level I wept nearly all the way through in a good way. An enjoyable and heart lifting read.But couldn t forget the story of the little boy who, on enquiring what mummy and daddy did in bed, was told The most wonderful and happy thing that a man and a woman can do together On hearing this, the little boy said Oh, you eat chocolate I can t help but think that we ll look back from eternity at the sort of things John s so eagerly awaiting and be amazed at how paltry our expectations were. I ll be buying copies to give as gifts it s too good to keep to oneself Gives fresh hope and perspective at a time of increasing darkness, but without being escapist, or sticking one s head in the sand. Breath of fresh air in Christian writing on the future and hope A must for everyone who struggles with question about Heaven and original design, our place in The Kingdom
