    The Heaven of Animals | With all of my heart, I believe it is truethat there is a heaven for animals, heaven of animals is a magical place. Angels know every dog's favorite game; cats bask in their own rays of sunshine; horses thunder across the loss of a pet is : Feiwel & Friends. The Book of Revelation describes God’s eternal kingdom in heaven using the images of a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation ). It is not described as a garden but as a heavenly city in which God dwells among his people in peace and understanding.

      One question I’m frequently asked related to my Heaven book is whether there will be animals on the New Earth, and specifically whether it’s possible that our pets might be there too. (I devoted two chapters of the book to animals.) Nanci and I love animals, and especially the pets we’ve had over the years, so I completely sympathize with the heart behind the question. In Heaven she is surrounded by the very animals she cared for on earth. In her book on Heaven, Joni Eareckson wrote that she expected God to bring our pets back to life in eternity. Theologians John Piper and Dr. R. C. Sproul have also expressed their expectation of seeing beloved pets in Heaven. Animals were part of God’s original paradise.
