“Not sure!!”

Hmm...I agree with some of the reviews in that the author encourages you to view eternity positively,but...
It would seem to me he is more concerned with a "paradise earth" than heaven. Indeed at one point, he says that,"Heaven is not as good as it gets..." and that "Heaven is not our final destination"(chapter 2) At the end of that chapter he says," what an amazing indication of the beauty of the new creation:it's better than heaven. This is the future of our world." Don't think I can agree with this in the light of scripture. If you hadn't asked me for this review, I intended getting in touch anyway... Would appreciate your feedback on this.

Hello, thanks for your review.

I think you've read Stephen's point correctly — he is pointing us towards a 'paradise earth'. He's resting that on Bible passages such as Revelation 21 v 1-4, where John sees a new heaven and a new earth, and in which God dwells with his people (just as he did in this world, in Eden, before the fall); and 1 Corinthians 15 v 35-57, where Paul teaches that we'll receive our resurrection bodies when Christ returns.

So while heaven right now is amazing, it's not where we were created to live eternally - we were designed to have a bodily existence in a physical world. This is also what the prophets promised (eg Isaiah 65 v 17-25). In one sense, you could call that place 'heaven' or 'earth' — but I think Stephen wants in his book to encourage us to see that the Bible teaches that our eternal future is physical, and 'earthy' - and perfect!

Hope this helps, thanks, Carl Laferton (Editor)

“Highly recommended for anyone in the church family!”

For some reason, I don't think about eternity as much as I ought to. But this book has changed that. Stephen Witmer shows how eternity is not just something to look forward to when we die, but how it changes the way we live now. Through a combination of Bible passages I was familiar with, and some that I wasn't, he shows how amazing the future is for Christian, how certain it is and then encourages us to let that reality affect the way we live each day until we get there. Inspirational, easy to read and pointing us to Christ all the way through. Highly recommended for anyone in the church family.

“An encouraging and uplifting read”

I found this book very encouraging and uplifting to read. It is simply and clearly written with many Biblical quotes and helpful illustrations of points being made. I immediately wanted to read it again more carefully. Having finished it, I have begun to do a closer study of the Bible itself as well, whilst bearing in mind the truths explained in the book. I have been struggling in my growth as a Christian for some time and this book has definitely helped to spur me on again. I'm very happy to recommend it to others who may need teaching about, or being reminded of the fact that our future as Christians is eternally and wonderfully certain. This truth can't help but affect the way that we respond to the circumstances and temptations of our daily lives, in the here and now.

“Helpful and encouraging”

I really enjoyed reading this book. I found Stephen's style engaging and clear and thus finished "Eternity Changes Everything" in a single sitting! I am certainly guilty of forgetting the imminent reality of our certain eternity and at times not being restless enough for meeting Christ face to face. This book got me excited again about meeting Christ and the wonderful future we have in Him.
