Trouble in Paradise

Slate Magazine reviews Lisa Miller’s “Heaven.” It seems to me that we do well to remain mysterious about heaven. And not just because the world’s skeptics have rightly figured out in response to those that wax eloquent about our common eschatelogical ache, “Show me your heaven, and I’ll show you what’s lacking in your life,” but also because Paul tells us that, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those that love him.”

    Mystery, yes I agree. Is this not why Jesus had to depict the kingdom of heaven through parable?
