1. I agree that writers will continue to write in Heaven. I look forward to that. I also believe many who never attempted to write books in this life could develop that skill (you will certainly have enough time).

    I love seeing people get excited about the possibilities that scripture gives us about Heaven. That’s the whole reason I wrote my book “My First 10,000 Years in Heaven.” I feel we should envision and talk about our eternal home more often.

    Retired librarian here: love the idea, enjoyed your article.

    And then there’s this crazy joke my husband told years ago – “I’ve got good news and bad news. There are libraries in Heaven! and you’re in the desk next Tuesday!” 😉

  3. Kathy E says:

    Oops, that’s “on the desk”

    Makes much more sense that way, doesn’t it?

    • Thanks Kathy! Hopefully the New Earth Library will be even easier and more fun to manage. I wonder if we’ll still have the Dewey Decimal system or develop a new method.

    YES! Understanding that eternity will be an upgrade of this life, not an end to everything I love, has been huge for my spirituality and faith walk. This also helps with the fear of the never-ending TBR, haha. I love that you’ve written this out and is it not MARVELOUS that God is super bookish, too?

    • It’s hard to imagine a guilt-free experience of continually adding to my TBR pile, much less devoting all the time I could want to reading. But what is Heaven except entering fully into his rest?

  5. Rachel D. Laird says:

    I’m looking forward to heaven more than ever. In addition to meeting my Savior and seeing my family and friends once more, I’ll have loads of time for my favorite hobby.

  6. I can just imagine what it will be like, and reading ALL the books is just one of many things I look forward to doing in heaven. Can you imagine the places to discover, or the new things to learn or create in heaven?

  7. JP Tucker says:

    An imaginative take…Enjoyed the possibilities you described—but the book of secrets? Doesn’t the psalmist say (more words!) that “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us?” That’s a long way to go to dig up and parade past sins. It may be interesting to consider that as authors we respect people’s privacy—in fact, there are laws that insist on it; therefore, it may not be too much of an imposition to believe that Jesus will, in those records that are published, respect the privacy (Some secrets will remain secrets?) of his brothers and sisters?

  8. Loved your article Zachary!
    Love the idea of continuing one of my favorite things to do into the Heavenly Kingdom. And it has God’s approval too to top it off – sweet, Lol!

    This was marvelous! I’ve long thought this. My third book in the Quantum Spacewalker series will be dealing with the Book of Life, amongst other fun concepts. 🙂

What say you?
