Review: Answers to Your Questions About Heaven
David Jeremiah is well-known speaker, pastor, and broadcaster. He is a pastor at Shadow Mountain Community Church and founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries. Although he is a familiar on-air voice, he did not narrate his book, Answers to Your Questions about Heaven. The book was narrated by Bob Souer.
This is a book of firsts for me - the first book by David Jeremiah and the first book I've heard read by Bob Souer. The narration was well done. The format is questions and answers. The questions read with good pauses before the answers were presented. Souer's voice was an easy listen. Every once in a while, it felt like a computer narration, but not for long sections. Souer has a very straightforward approach to reading an audiobook. I would listen to him again.
The content of Answers to Your Questions about Heaven was okay. Jeremiah talks about heaven, angels, demons, and the millennium. The most thoughtful section of the book was when he answered questions about angels. To briefly sum up, our impressions of angels are vastly different from how they are described in the Bible. I would agree. For the most part, the millennium section stood out because it was a very different take on the end times and heaven. I know people have questions about heaven and I appreciate Jeremiah sharing Bible verses with the readers.
I was intrigued by the questions shared in the Answers to Your Questions about Heaven, but I would not need to read it again. This book made me go back to Hebrews 11:1 - "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Faith builds hope and trust and removes worry. So I don't need to worry about heaven. God has kept his promises for ages past and I know he will keep his promise of heaven to me.
I received this audiobook for free from christianaudio for this review.
