Aug 02, 2012
Understanding and embracing death as a Christian, plus Randy Alcorn on heaven, and a question about getting over a broken relationship. Featured musical artist: Adam Cappa
Someday you will die. That's a fact. But will you die well? You will if you understand that your death is the gateway to the main event — an eternity either with or without Jesus Christ. A healthy understanding of death gives us a framework for living life in a way that honors God. Listen in as a few of us talk about anticipating the day when we see the Lord face to face, and how we can navigate today the road that will get us there.
What will heaven be like? Most of us haven't given it much thought beyond what we've seen in Bible storybooks and Sunday school flannelgraphs. But pastor and bestselling author Randy Alcorn has. He's studied heaven so much that he& wrote almost 500 pages about it. He joins me in the studio to answer my most pressing questions about heaven and why thinking about it should inspire not boredom or dread, but joy.
