Omtale: A Brief History of Heaven
The concept of heaven has had an enormous impact on popular culture in the west, both religious and secular. So where does the idea come from? How did it develop? And how has it shaped western culture? This engaging and highly accessible book by one of today's best-known Christian writers explores the history of heaven, from its origins in biblical writings right up to the modern day. Bringing together literature, theology, politics, and the arts, this fascinating book traces the remarkable influence that the idea of heaven has had - and continues to have - on western culture.
