Interesting and Thought Provoking
The Heaven Promise by Scot McKnight is one man’s fascinating study into heaven. He covers areas such as what the Bible says, why people believe in heaven and finishes with the ten most asked questions about heaven.
Scot McKnight discusses where we get our ideas about heaven from, and interestingly, it is not mainly from the Bible. He states that heaven is God’s promise to the world. “Heaven can’t be proven by logic; it can’t be discovered by scientists; it can’t be established by near death experiences… Heaven is a promise.”
According to Scot McKnight, people believe in one of two types of heaven – theocentric or kingdom centric. The first has God at the centre, the second from what I understand, is based around people.
