Book Review - The Gift of Heaven


Dr. Charles Stanley is one of the most recognizable teachers and pastors in the world, having sold more than 11 million books through HarperCollins Christian Publishing. The Gift of Heaven, his first book on heaven, answers a strong felt need among consumers who have questions about God and what happens after we die. Drawn from a popular sermon series that Dr. Charles Stanley delivered at First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, this teaching has never before been available in book form. The Gift of Heaven will appeal broadly to existing fans of Dr. Stanley as well as believers and nonbelievers alike who have questions about heaven.

Messages on Heaven, one of Dr. Stanley’s most-loved sermon series, has touched thousands of churchgoers with its encouraging, instructive teaching. Newly adapted for print for the first time, The Gift of Heaven will include topics such as:

 Heaven Is a Gift and a Relationship
 A Place Prepared for You
 What Will Be in Heaven (and What Will Not)
 Those You Love in Heaven
 The Door to Heaven Is Open
 The Best Is Yet to Come

This beautifully designed, four-color gift book will be a source of encouragement and inspiration for the weary traveler on earth who seeks his heavenly home. With similar design elements to those that made Christmas: A Gift for Every Heart so successful with a wide audience, The Gift of Heaven will be both visually appealing and theologically compelling.
Dr. Stanley’s proven history of sales, combined with a compelling topic and excellent design, will carry this book through evergreen sales for years to come.


Charles F. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries and a New York Times  best-selling author. While his teaching is transmitted throughout the world to millions of people, Dr. Stanley has been said to demonstrate a practical, keen awareness of people's needs and provide Christ-centered, biblically-based principles for everyday life.

Dr. Stanley’s motivation is best represented by the truth found in Acts 20:24, “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love.” This is because, as he says, “It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people’s lives.”


This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen! It is such a beautiful book visually but most of all in it's message.

The book is filled on each and every page with Dr. Stanley's gorgeous photographs. He is a true artist in his photography and I loved looking at each and every page. The message, though, is the most beautiful part.

I love how the Gospel is shared and how Dr. Stanley shares what we know about heaven from the Word of God. This would be an excellent book to share with someone that has questions about the saving grace of Jesus. It shows so beautifully what it means to have eternal life and answers so many questions. As someone who believes, I loved the promises that we know to be true shared in such an amazing way.

I love this book and have gone through it and read it and looked at the photos so many times. I'm keeping it on my coffee table so I can look through it but also for others to look through. It's a wonderful way to share the truths about heaven with others.

I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
