John Eldredge, New York Times bestselling author, provides readers a breathtaking glimpse into God's promise for a new heaven and a new earth.
This revolutionary book on heaven is built on the simple idea: heaven is not the eternal church service in the sky. It's not a religious expression at all. Jesus talks about the coming kingdom as "the renewal of all things" (Matthew 19:28). Imagine the renewal of the earth we love, in all its beauty, the renewal of our own being, and those things which make for a rich life--music, art, food, laughter, all that we hold dear--shall be renewed.
This book begins by reframing the way you see heaven by explaining what it actually entails. God does not tells us, "I am making all new things." Instead, He says, "Behold—I am making all things new!” (Revelation 21:5). Discard your old religious conceptions of heaven and experience a new way of conceiving of the afterlife.
Explore imagery from fairy tales, books, and famous movies like The Lord of the Rings to assemble a new perspective of what "happily ever after" really means. As C. S. Lewis explained, "We can only hope for what we desire." Change the way you look at the life by renewing your perspective of the life to come.
