Hour 1: The Best is Yet to Be

For all the skepticism that abounds in our time, people still want to know what happens after death. Do you know with any certainty where your conscious, thinking, self–aware, communicative self will be? And does it matter, as long as you are in ’heaven’? But the importance of ’heaven’ does not consist only in it being the alternative to ’hell’. It is not just an abstract future state into which we will slip, it is a physical reality which can give us joy and hope even now as we look toward it. Our guest will examine how the Christian can and should think about heaven.

He will not only describe the motivations and aspirations of those who live in the Middle East, but he will also outline a peaceful solution. Join us to hear the real story behind the headlines.
