Dr. Charles Stanley is the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, where he has served for more than 40 years.

Dr. Stanley’s goal is best represented by 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.”

“We cannot fathom heaven. We cannot begin to even imagine its beauty. Instead, God traces the outlines of it for us. He provides a blueprint through His Word.” - Charles F. Stanley

We are all curious about heaven as we try to grapple with the magnificent idea of living forever.

Dr. Charles Stanley addresses some of our questions in his book, THE GIFT OF HEAVEN.

This 7” x 7” hardback book is published by Thomas Nelson. The 160 high-gloss pages are full of colorful photos of God’s creation—seashores, mountains, flowers, rocks, sunrises, and sunsets. Most of the page layouts contain regular text on one side and on the opposite page is a key point to ponder.

To me, this book is a cross between a gift book and a devotion book. I guess I’ll call it a meaty gift book! It begins with a mention about “the wages of sin is death,” but the primary focus of this book is the second part of Romans 6:23, “. . . but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

There are ten “chapters.” Each one varies in length but all end with a page of scripture verses. The scriptures come from various translations: ESV, NIV, NKJV, NLT, and TLB.

The titles are:

Heaven is a Gift
Jesus’ Wonderful Promise
A Glimpse of Heaven
What Will Be in Heaven (and What Will Not)
In the Presence of God
Those You Love in Heaven
Having Ultimate Fulfillment in Heaven
What Makes the Promise of Heaven Possible?
Becoming Eternally Secure
The Best is Yet to Come

Dr. Stanley shares with readers what he understands through scripture. He also shares with us what he does not know. By that, I mean, he is honest in conveying to folks that he does not know all the answers about heaven.

“If I die at seventy-five, what am I going to look like?” Well, I can’t answer that question. I can tell you this. You are going to be the best-looking seventy-five-year-old you’ve ever seen. Or I am asked, “Well, suppose a person dies as a baby. Will that person always remain a baby, or will they grow up?” Nobody knows the answer to that, so all those things are conjecture. We just know some things that are absolutely certain, given to us in the Scripture. - The Gift of Heaven

I like this book. It’s the kind of book to keep on your nightstand or coffee table. You could pick it up at any time, turn to any chapter, and find spiritual refreshment and encouragement for the soul.
