B&H releases novel on heaven, Adrian Rogers end times study

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–A novel about a dream journey to heaven and a study on the end times were among 11 books released in January by Broadman & Holman, the trade book division of LifeWay Christian Resources.

“Room of Marvels,” a novel by James Bryan Smith, is a story about a man whose daughter, mother and best friend have died within months of each other. In desperation, he seeks healing at a spiritual retreat where he prays himself to sleep and dreams about a journey to heaven. On the journey, he encounters departed acquaintances, distant relatives and personal heroes like C.S. Lewis. He is also reunited with his mother, daughter and best friend.

“Unveiling the End Times in Our Time” by Adrian Rogers is a study of the Book of Revelation. Rogers provides clear explanations of Revelation, from a pre-millennial and pre-tribulational point of view. A new Christian who knows little about Scripture should enjoy the book as should readers who are spiritually mature with some knowledge of Revelation.
