“Beyond Heaven’s Doors is a delightful little book to point your eyes towards eternity.”
“The down-to-earth American pastor and bestselling author, Max Lucado writes as if you’re sitting beside him, with a friendly, non-confrontational smile. His engaging stories, excellent metaphors and biblical grasp always make his books both assessable and revelatory. This one is all about heaven: what’s it like, will I get in, what will we do, how do I explain it to others and how can you prepare.”
“We think this book is an ideal coffee break read, with short and to-the-point chapters that only take 3 minutes to read. With Max’s friendly guidance, we can all make our eternal destination today’s reality.”

The book isn’t a heavy, dusty tome that will take up most of your shelf space. It’s a little, tiny, delicate book that looks well suited resting on a coffee table or standing against a computer screen on an office desk.
When opened you’ll discover soft, warming tones across each page. With light browns, subtle oranges and large text it becomes a joy to pick up and read. Within each of the 20 chapters are pictures to rest your eyes from words and cleverly formatted text to your eyes satisfied and hunger for more.
In the second chapter rose petals form the end of a Bible reading and in the third chapter (based on clothing) a railing full of coat hangers begin the reading and clothes pegged to a washing line end it. These visuals help Max’s reading dig deeper into your memory and make his insightful teaching hit home.
