This poll at Crosswalk.com
really surprised me. At first I thought, maybe I didn't have to write this book! I had envisioned my audience as the respondents to #2 or #3. Of course, that audience would be less likely to frequent a site like Crosswalk. I still think the majority of North American Christians have more of a lukewarm, vaguely-defined faith that desperately needs a more dynamic, more deeply biblical vision of heaven.
And actually, it's likely that the same need exists among some of the 77 percent here who think heaven will be "great." My book argues that heaven will be much more than respite, much more than leisure, much more than worship. It will be a cosmos where everything is made right. "Great" doesn't begin to describe it.
