Description

New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge offers readers a breathtaking look into God’s promise for a new heaven and a new earth.

This revolutionary book about our future is based on the simple idea that, according to the Bible, heaven is not our eternal home--the New Earth is. As Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew, the next chapter of our story begins with "the renewal of all things," by which he means the earth we love in all its beauty, our own selves, and the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food, laughter and all that we hold dear. Everything shall be renewed "when the world is made new."

More than anything else, how you envision your future shapes your current experience. If you knew that God was going to restore your life and everything you love any day; if you believed a great and glorious goodness was coming to you--not in a vague heaven but right here on this earth--you would have a hope to see you through anything, an anchor for your soul, "an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God" (Hebrews 6:19).

Most Christians (most people for that matter) fail to look forward to their future because their view of heaven is vague, religious, and frankly boring. Hope begins when we understand that for the believer nothing is lost. Heaven is not a life in the clouds; it is not endless harp-strumming or worship-singing. Rather, the life we long for, the paradise Adam and Eve knew, is precisely the life that is coming to us. And that life is coming soon.

    I keep coming back to this book and reading my highlighted portions over and over. This book is what following Christ is truly about, yet most Christians completely miss it. A must read for anyone in search of HOPE.

    The entire human race needs to read this book. I know many don’t even want to believe that God exists, but where is hope then? We’ve lost it, stuck in the routine busyness and unable to interpret life. Even Christians feel this way. We have lost hope and this book gives it back. John goes through so many things we have thought about our future but never really understood. I think this book will bring clarity to you if you’re in the place. The best thing about this book is that John expresses his need for it to. It’s not just pie in the sky, it’s rooted in our DNA to hope for something beyond this life and live for it. I need reminded of this message weekly, if not daily. Oh yeah, and that part about singing for eternity in heaven and that’s it. He clearly explains that we’ll be doing much more than that!
