Drawing deeply from Scripture, Dr. Hahn exhibits that the hosts of heaven encompass the earthly Church as a "great cloud of witnesses." The martyrs cry out from heaven’s altar begging for justice on this planet. The prayers of the saints and angels upward thrust to God, within the booklet of Revelation, just like the candy aroma of incense.
Dr. Hahn tells the tales of a number of saints (and numerous angels too) in a manner that’s clean and new. The saints are non secular giants yet with flesh-and-blood truth. they've got robust, holy ambitions—and robust temptations and competition that has to be triumph over. Their tales are remarkable and but known sufficient to inspire us to stay extra attractive lives. during this telling in their tale, the saints are neither otherworldly nor this-worldly. They exemplify the built-in lifestyles that each Christian is termed to live.
Still, their lives are as assorted from each other as human lives could be. Dr. Hahn exhibits the heavenly Church in all its kaleidoscopic diversity—from Moses to Mary, Augustine to Therese, and the 1st century to the final century.
Only saints will dwell in heaven. we have to be extra just like the saints if we wish to reside in heaven sometime. Dr. Hahn indicates us that our heavenly existence can start now.
