He would soon find that heaven was nothing like what he had imagined, nor what his place in it would be. John Roberts spent three years studying scripture and two years as an assistant pastor in a mainline Christian denomination. He has, since early childhood, been fascinated by our future lives in heaven. He has presented to the reader an alternative view to the cloud and harp version we've all heard. He welcomes comments.
