Do you wonder about that? I do, probably because I love to read and can’t imagine there not being stories in heaven. So, yes, I believe there will be stories in eternity. But I’m not sure we’ll find books there. We might find something far more powerful.
The combined gross of movies in any given year is significantly greater than the total number of book sales. Why? One reason might be the ability of movies to make stories visual in a way books can’t. So what if in heaven we’re able to create and read stories that people not only can see, but can live in?
Might we be able to be inside the story, watching the events unfold as if they are standing on stage during a play. Or maybe we’ll be actual characters in the book.
I don’t know what it will be like. But if “”No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” is true—and I think it is—heaven will be a story lovers paradise.
What about you? Do you think there will be novels in heaven?
