Amid all the popular conjecture about Heaven, what does the Bible actually say? And why does it matter?

"Heaven is a surprisingly popular topic in our culture--there is no shortage of books, films, and other media exploring the afterlife. But what does the Bible say? God has provided us with a tantalizing glimpse of Heaven in His Word. Chip Ingram helps us navigate Scripture's teaching and separate fact from fiction in this practical, readable book."--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family

"My friend Chip Ingram is a compelling communicator of Truth. The Real Heaven shows us why Heaven matters and gives us guidance as we live with an eternal perspective and personal hope. Don't miss this book!"--Jack Graham, pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church

"Understanding Heaven is not a waste of time. For Christians, it's one of the most important things we can do! Hope in the promise of what God has prepared for us in the future can make the present much more meaningful, and Chip helps us cling to that hope as he explains The Real Heaven."--Dave Stone, pastor, Southeast Christian Church, Louisville, KY


With all the sensationalized stories of Heaven told from people who claim to have died and come back, how do you really know what to believe about Heaven?

Heaven has received a lot of attention in recent years as bestselling books and movies have told the stories of people who claim to have been there.

What does the Bible actually say about heaven?
What difference does it make?
What happens the moment after we die?
What will our relationships be like in heaven?

Chip Ingram sets aside the hype and myths and digs into the Scriptures to discover what God actually wants us to know about the afterlife hereafter. Most importantly, Ingram shows why our understanding of Heaven matters now, in this life. Because what we believe about Heaven actually affects us today in ways we may not have imagined.
