‘Wolfe is two for two. He is not a one-book wonder. He tackles the question of heaven in a down-to-earth fashion that steers clear of the sentimentalism and vague theology so often associated with the subject. This book helps me not only to fulfil my pastoral duty in preparing my people for death but, more importantly, to prepare myself. I am more interested in going to heaven now having read this book!’ — ALISTAIR BEGG

Book Description

In Setting Our Sights on Heaven, Paul Wolfe brings out the Bible’s teaching about heaven, addressing the various factors that tend to push heaven out of our minds, and provides gospel remedies that help us push it back to where it belongs.

    While this is a book that should be read slowly and thoughtfully, I admit that I read it fast, in 2 days. I just couldn’t stop reading it. It not only talks about heaven and what scripture says about it, but it presents the Gospel as well. I plan on giving it to someone who doesn’t know the way to heaven. I wish I could afford to buy a case of books to give to everyone I know.

    I found this book because Alistair Begg’s Truth for Life program recommended it and I thought I’d check it out. Glad I did!!
