The Publisher’s Description on the Back Cover

Quoting Dr.Lutzer in his book, ‘When we reflect on how we lived for Christ, we might weep on the other side of the celestial gates.’

Dr. Lutzer addresses the fact that many Christians have emptied the judgment seat of Christ of its meaning, living as though they will never meet His knowing gaze.  For this they may have ‘tears in heaven’.  He explores the often overlooked Scriptures about reward and judgment for Christians.

For instance:

  • How will believers be judged?
  • Do rewards for faithfulness vary?
  • If heaven is perfect, why do the rewards even matter?
