Between Heaven and Earth
Finding Hope, Courage, and Passion Through a Fresh Vision of Heaven
by Steve Berger
"Sometimes we feel stuck -- stuck between the hope of heaven and the pain of this world. Steve Berger shows us how to not only live in that tension, but how and why we should embrace it."
—Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
After a car accident caused his 19-year-old son to unexpectedly enter heaven, Pastor Steve Berger chose to reject despair and commit himself to carefully studying his son's new, eternal home.
In this book, you'll discover the joy of having your heart rooted and grounded in heaven. You're going to understand its glory and beauty. You'll read about the hope of heaven, your ultimate home.
"When my friend Steve Berger talks about heaven, I sit up and listen." —Michael W. Smith
"Heaven became intensely personal to my wife and me in August 2009 when a one-person car accident sent our son, Josiah, to heaven."

It's important to see our lives in a larger perspective, to recognize that this moment is part of a larger adventure, and that while every decision is important, none is all-important.
For Berger, heaven is our real home, and here he anchors his ideas in Ecclesiastes 3:11 ... he’s right in the big picture when he contends heaven is our real hope.
While Between Heaven and Earth would prove valuable for Christian families who have lost children, the book really shines as something that could generate a new center of gravity for anyone.
