More on Heaven (i.e. the New Earth)
Chuck Colson offers a dissapointing response to David Brook's article I quoted a few entries ago. Invoking C.S. Lewis' imagery in the Great Divorce is not a big help. Lewis's book is a parable about Christian commitment; not a serious reflection on the nature of glory.

I did see Alister McGrath's new book A Brief History of Heaven at Border's. His opening chapters looked at the idea of heaven as a garden and heaven as a city. Why not a Garden City?
