How to Enjoy Heaven

One question I run across quite often can be worded as follows: "How will I enjoy Heaven if I know some of my unsaved loved one's are suffering in Hell?" For now, I can only think of 6 possible answers to this question. Which position(s) do you hold?

1. We won't remember 'lost' people
2. Joy will outweigh sorrow
3. We'll understand justice and be content
4. We'll find out that the wicked are annihilated
5. We'll find out that the wicked are converted
6. Joy in heaven doesn't imply an absence of grief

Nope, I haven't read that yet. I may get to it in the near future b/c i'm going to be doing a series on life after death.

Does the author take a position on the question in my post?

I don't think he really takes any specific "position"...he just describes exactly what he saw and what he felt. And that is actually only a very small part of the book...most of the book is about him waking up and being depressed and just "wanting to go back home" after having been there....
