From the Back Cover
The Protestant Church has wrestled since the time of the Reformation with how can believers be saved by grace but rewarded in degrees based on their works. Though some through the years have argued the Scriptures don't actually teach differing degrees of reward, this has been the predominant view. This book takes the minority view. Believers are saved by grace alone through faith alone, and the believer's rewards and glorification are based on the finished work of Christ alone. It is grace from start to finish. The church is the bride of Christ, and in the end all that is His is hers.
"Grounded in covenant theology with a focus on the pactum salutis and in Reformed soteriology with an emphasis on salvation by grace alone, Taylor's More than Heaven builds a fresh case for the minority view that Scripture does not teach degrees of heavenly reward based on human merit; any eschatological blessing is earned by Christ alone and obtained by believers by grace alone." -MEREDITH M. KLINE, retired director of Goddard Library, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"If we believe in justification by faith alone apart from works, what does that do to the idea of degrees of reward in heaven? Jeff Taylor does an excellent service in showing from Scripture that there is only one reward-eternal glory in the new creation, merited on behalf of all the elect by Christ, the second Adam." -CHARLES LEE IRONS, Sr. Research Administrator, Charles R. Drew University
"... More Than Heaven is extremely important and exceedingly elegant work in interpreting verses concerning the eternal glory of the risen Christ who has deemed us worthy of innocence in the one final judgement in which the covenant elect are universally rewarded based on Christ’s merit and not our own." Scott Meyer Ph.D. Yale
Are There Rewards in Heaven? A Review of T. Jeff Taylor’s “More Than Heaven” - VoegelinView
"This was a wonderfully written book with so much richness to take away from this federal view of glorification. 100% recommend. It puts to rest this notion that the believer is saved by Grace but then somehow earns more or lesser rewards based on works. Jesus is even better than we imagine." Jordan Bradley (goodreads)
