About-

Foretaste of Heaven is a witness to the enabling grace of God in a time of grave illness. It shows how the Christian hope of the Resurrection of the Dead and of Life Everlasting lifts the mind and heart above the sadness of imminent death and fills the soul with joyful anticipation of heaven. The Psalms in particular are seen as a well from which can be drawn assurances of God as truly "a very present help in time of need."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Mortally ill, Peter Toon was personally confronted by questions about Christian patience and hope, the nature of intercessory prayer, the life of the world to come. His response was to interweave theological thought of his customary clarity with the experience of a dying man. One reader told me she had stayed up all night to finish the story, sometimes weeping. This is a beautiful, practical, profound Christian book."
--Ian Robinson
author of Who Killed the Bible: Last Words on Translating the Holy Scriptures
