Blogger's response to Chapter 1

From one xanga-er:

It is so hard to think of heaven as a reality. This life is so concrete, and the next so nebulous. But in the end we will come to think of this life as just a distant dream: fuzzy around the edges, like a memory from childhood. You can recall that it happened, but you are totally out of touch with it.

Nathan gives a few reasons why he believes heaven is such a distant thought. One of his minor reasons is that we associate heaven with death. Heaven happens to old people and young people whose lives tragically end too soon. I think just mentally dissociating "heaven" from "death" could do a lot to positively affect our attitudes toward heaven.
