The prayers of the saints and angels upward thrust to God, within the e-book of Revelation, just like the candy aroma of incense.

Dr. Hahn tells the tales of numerous saints (and a number of angels too) in a manner that’s clean and new. The saints are non secular giants yet with flesh-and-blood fact. they've got robust, holy ambitions—and robust temptations and competition that has to be triumph over. Their tales are outstanding and but common adequate to inspire us to reside extra attractive lives. during this telling in their tale, the saints are neither otherworldly nor this-worldly. They exemplify the built-in existence that each Christian is termed to live.

Still, their lives are as diverse from each other as human lives could be. Dr. Hahn indicates 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 reside in heaven. we have to be extra just like the saints if we wish to dwell in heaven sometime. Dr. Hahn indicates us that our heavenly lifestyles can commence now.

It needs to.
