Forever - A Book Review and Giveaway!

About The Book:


Is this all you’re living for? For years, pastor Paul Tripp understood we were “hardwired for forever.” But he didn’t understand that it was more than a valuable insight. It is a practical tool to help us face the disappointment of everyday life. Now he knows, and he can help you discover how to survive and thrive in the middle of your story, with the final chapter of heaven in view. Instead of embracing the world’s motto—“you only live once”—follow Tripp as he unpacks the biblical truth of the world as a broken place, longing for a second chance. And come alive as you discover the meaning and redemption all this brokenness can bring to your life today. With practical insights on how eternity impacts your relationships, your job, your kids, and your deepest struggles, you’ll be encouraged to relax into the eternal story God is writing for you. You really are hardwired for eternity, and this book reveals how you can begin to view all that happens in your life as preparation for Forever.


You can read a sample of Forever here, in PDF format.

My Review:


Forever by Paul David Trip is the first of his books that I have had the pleasure to read, and it truly was a pleasure. Forever was a fantastic reminder that we, as Christians, must live our daily lives, regardless of what that brings, in light of eternity. Written in a very easy to read and comprehend manner, this book is perfect for all ages 18 and up. With many practical ideas and real life examples, you will be encouraged to rethink how you look at forever, and how your life should reflect eternity. Definitely a huge eye opener to be sure. 


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
