Heaven Is Now: A Book Review

About The Book:

What if heaven wasn't just meant to be experienced after we die? What if heaven can be enjoyed here on earth--right now?

In this life-changing book, bestselling author Andrew Farley reveals how you can take in the beauty of heaven no matter what your circumstances.  With insight firmly rooted in the reality of pain and suffering, Andrew assures you that heaven is not merely some pie-in-the-sky dream for the future--it is now. He shows you how to awaken your five spiritual senses in order to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel the grace of heaven, even in the midst of trouble here on earth.

The heaven we can experience in this life lies within us, far beyond the reach of the world--but well within our grasp.

About The Author:

Andrew Farley is senior pastor of Ecclesia, an evangelical church that has resided on the high plains of West Texas for more than fifty years, and a bestselling author of several books, including Heaven Is Now. He serves as a faculty adviser for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and frequently speaks at churches and university groups around the United States and in Canada. Andrew is also a professor of Applied Linguistics at Texas Tech University in West Texas where he lives with his wife, Katharine, and their son, Gavin. 

My Review:

Wow! What a simple, yet profound book. A small book, but big on ideas, that are essential to our faith, but written in a way that anyone can understand the theology behind his words. It is a book that should be written by all those that call themselves Christian and need some encouragement as they journey here on Earth. By using all our senses we will become closer then ever to our Lord and Savior. What an amazing read. I never thought about my relationship with Christ in this manner, until now that is. Wow, just wow. Complete with prayers and loads of scripture, a wonderful tool for all ages and stages.

I highly recommend this book and give it huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase Heaven Is Now at your favorite bookseller from Baker Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group
