Heaven is a World of Love

Heaven is a popular subject, but popular perceptions of Heaven filled with clouds, harps, and halos are far from the Bible’s presentation of Heaven as the presence of God. Hell is an unpopular subject, but ideas of Hell filled with fire, demons, and torment are closer to the Bible’s portrayal than most people are comfortable with. In both cases people need guidance into what the Scriptures actually say about the eternal destiny of human souls.

Description

Heaven is a popular subject, but popular perceptions of Heaven filled with clouds, harps, and halos are far from the Bible’s presentation of Heaven as the presence of God. Hell is an unpopular subject, but ideas of Hell filled with fire, demons, and torment are closer to the Bible’s portrayal than most people are comfortable with. In both cases people need guidance into what the Scriptures actually say about the eternal destiny of human souls.

Unity and division on earth are reflections of the eternal harmony and hostility that will characterize Heaven and Hell. Not only that, but peacefulness and divisiveness are indications of whether a person is a citizen of Heaven or Hell. Holiness is characterized by love and peace; sinfulness is characterized by hate and strife. No one understood these truths more profoundly or presented them more powerfully than America’s greatest theologian, Jonathan Edwards.

Edwards’ message “Heaven Is a World of Love” may be the greatest sermon on Heaven ever preached. His message “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is certainly the most famous sermon on Hell ever preached. This Be United in Christ Book Summary does what no other resource has done before: it summarizes both of these important messages, presenting them together in their entirety in an easy to understand format. In addition, this summary offers a delightful and insightful sample of Edwards’ reflections on Heaven from his “Miscellanies.”

As you read this book summary, you will come to a deeper understanding of the glories of Heaven, the horrors of hell, the wonders of the gospel, and the enduring importance of the love, peace, and unity that should characterize all true children of God.
