Finding Heaven by Dr. Edward Mrkvicka, Jr., D.D. (h.c.) with Kelly Mrkvicka Bihlmaier speaks about finding the meaning of life and discusses the pathway to heaven. Beginning with Matthew 7:13-14 stating, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” This book is about one’s belief system in God. With Biblical integrity, coupled with wisdom and common sense, the author truthfully states that your choices on Earth will affect your eternity. Intriguing, and filled with Scripture that explain the purpose of life on Earth, this book gives a roadmap to finding God and knowing God, finding salvation, obeying God and discovering true purpose in life through the knowledge of God and His Word.

The book is further dedicated to those that would believe that (as stated by the author), “The deception of Satan tells us that all we need to do to be with Christ for eternity is believe.” In that statement, he addresses, what is sometimes called “cheap grace.” This is where one believes not in repentance, but the forgiveness of sins without a turning away from sin, known as true repentance from the heart. Further discussing other beliefs such as non-belief, as in Atheism, and other beliefs about God that include such theories as “The Big Bang Theory”, the authors sequentially address all of the roads that one may “think” leads them to God and to heaven.

The authors further address the issue of hope and the “looking for love in all the wrong places,” as the old saying goes and gives readers a choice with thought-provoking analysis, what are you searching for knowing that when you die you can’t take anything with you? Material wealth is of no consequence after one dies, thus one path leads to life (salvation and eternity in heaven); and the other path is broad, leading many to an untimely and destructive end. The broad path is deceiving, in such Edward Mrkvicka addresses the heart and mind attitudes that may lead one on that path. With such chapters as: Getting to Know the One Who Knows You the Best, Salvation 101, Obedience: The Lynchpin of our Faith, Jesus is Not Merely Your Savior, the author helps readers discover a relationship, not a religion.

Stating their case for God throughout (i.e. creation), readers are offered knowledge of Who God is according to the “God of the Bible,” not what they may want God to be in their mind. Then the book gives readers an understanding of salvation and why it is so important to be saved. Everyone wants to go to heaven and the reality is that not everyone will go. His book is written to inform, exhort, instruct, encourage and to inspire those that would choose this temporal world over the truth of the God of creation, Who sent His only Son to save all for those who would believe. (Paraphrased John 3:16)

This is an excellent book for those that don’t understand their purpose in life, need hope (and those that perhaps don’t believe in God), and for those who seek answers.

Finding Heaven comes highly recommended as one of those reads that will make a true impact on those who are in deception, being either deceived by the world or their own rebellion, and speaks of the magnificent light in the truth of Jesus’ salvation and knowledge of the Word.
