We Shall See God by Randy Alcorn

*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. My review is my own and has not been influenced by anyone*

I must first say that this book is great for a devotional. The page count for each chapter is just right and allows for time to think, meditate, and apply was has been presented.

That being said, this book is a great read. I cannot express how many times I had to put the book down and think about what I just read. The words of Charles Spurgeon married with the commentary of Randy Alcorn worked so well in tandem that it was as if Spurgeon and Alcorn met and discussed what was to be written.

Reading the words of Spurgeon on Heaven, God, and the Divine, really caused me to think about what it would be like. It also corrected some of the misconceptions that I had about Heaven, God, and what it may be like.

Another great attribute of this book is that it is simple. This is not two theologians giving some input. Rather it is two men, giving simple answers and thoughts. By doing so, it really engages a broad audience; an audience that can greatly benefit from this read.

I really hope that Alcorn does this with other speakers/authors as his input is very insightful and helpful.
