Dr. Robert Peterson, Professor of Systematic Theology, and alumnus Dan Barber recently published Life Everlasting: The Unfolding Story of Heaven, part of the Explorations in Biblical Theology series that Peterson edits.
This book seeks, on the basis of Scripture, to inform believers about heaven (the new heavens and the new earth), to form them further into the image of Christ, and to assure them of their place in heaven. It establishes a biblical-theological framework through which we can better understand heaven–and shows how it produces changes in our everyday lives (not simply when we face death or experience suffering).
The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability–a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.
