Beyond Heaven’s Door

By: Max Lucado

Come along on a journey with Max Lucado as he paints a beautiful picture of heaven.  Written in his unique story-telling style Max draws inspiration from scripture, as well as, real-life stories.  Max Lucado begins by describing his love of golf and how he felt when he was invited to the Masters Golf Tournament.  He was so happy to be at the event but he wanted more.  He wanted to go into the locker room.  The guard would not let him in because only players and caddies are allowed in the locker room.  The guard knew he was not a player and caddies are required to wear white overalls.  Max said his clothing was a clear sign that he was not going to be able to enter.  He relates this life experience to how we need to be clothed in Christ in order to enter heaven.   He then goes on to describe heaven.  I think Max said it best on page 74 when he described what John said in Revelation 21:4.  “Heaven will be great, he said, not just because of what is present but because of what is missing.”   Can you imagine living a life free of pain, problems, fear and sorrow?

I found this book to be very encouraging.  So often death is viewed as the end but really it is just the beginning.
