N.T. Wright says don’t think heaven, think Resurrection

David Van Biema, Time [Read the Article]

“Our culture is very interested in life after death, but the New Testament is much more interested in what I've called the life after life after death — in the ultimate resurrection into the new heavens and the new Earth... John Polkinghorne, a physicist and a priest, has put it this way: ‘God will download our software onto his hardware until the time he gives us new hardware to run the software again for ourselves.’ That gets to two things nicely: that the period after death is a period when we are in God's presence but not active in our own bodies, and also that the more important transformation will be when we are again embodied and administering Christ's kingdom.”

This makes sense to me.  Makes it easier to resist the temptation to think of Heaven as a kind of extended epilogue—rather than thinking of this life as a short prologue to the real thing.
