In this engaging survey Paula Gooder looks at the ways in which the biblical writers saw heaven and earth connect, exploring all the major strands of belief about life after death, including the role of paradise, and what happens between death and resurrection. 'Heaven is one of those great mysteries that somehow symbolizes what we don't know about ourselves and the world around us. At the same time it lifts our vision from the mundane realities of our lives and reminds us that beyond the daily grind of our existence there is another, unseen reality. A reality governed not by the things of earth but by the things of God. A reality that is as real - if not more so - than our everyday lives.' (from the introduction).
