What Makes Heaven Heaven

A Brief History of Heaven ~ Alister McGrathAlister McGrath closed out his A Brief History of Heaven with this quote from John Donne. It needs no exposition. I pray that it captures your heart for God as it did mine and ignites a spark in your soul to cultivate a hope for heaven because of whom it is that we will see face to face . . . and live:

No man ever saw God and lived. And yet, I shall not live till I see God; and when I have seen him, I shall never die (184).

  1. Wow.

    You’re right about McGrath’s words. They are soaked in expectation and anticipation.
