And how has it shaped western culture? This engaging and highly accessible book by one of today's best-known Christian writers explores the history of heaven, from its origins in biblical writings right up to the modern day. Bringing together literature, theology, politics, and the arts, this fascinating book traces the remarkable influence that the idea of heaven has had - and continues to have - on western culture.
