Editors' note: This series explores key doctrines of the Christian faith and their practical ramifications for everyday life. Earlier in this series:

Next month thousands of pastors and other Christians will gather in Orlando for our National Conference, Coming Home: New Heaven & New Earth. The Gospel Coalition president D. A. Carson says, “We don’t treasure heaven much because we don’t have a right understanding of what the Bible actually says about heaven.”

To learn more about heaven, in preparation for our conference theme, I corresponded with Randy Alcorn, founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM) and author of more than 40 books, including the best-selling book Heaven. Alcorn will be delivering a workshop at the National Conference on the topic “Continuity & Discontinuity: How Similar or Different Might Life on the New Earth Be To Our Present Lives?Register now to reserve your spot.
