Having gone through loss, Heaven and forever is suddenly a big topic of interest for me so the book and it's description really grabbed my attention. The book is about forever - eternity - and how our view of it impacts our lives. Most notably that we don't even think about it at all in our day to day existence.
We have, as the author frequently states, "eternity I bought this book at the Liberate Conference in Ft. We have, as the author frequently states, "eternity amnesia". The book describes our neglect of eternity and how that neglect shapes the way we think and how we live.
It was very eye-opening for me. I had no idea how vast and deep a difference having and living with a right perspective of eternity makes on your everyday life.
We generally acknowledge that our understanding of forever affects our view of death and loss, but how many of us really think that it also affects our frustrations, broken relationships, or our sense of identity?
Starting from a biblical foundation and understanding of eternity, Mr. Tripp takes us on a spiritual journey to flesh out all the ways forever shapes our lives.

To close, I wanted to post a few of my favorites quotes from the book - this is just a sampling of the wonderful teaching in the book! Whatever our confessional theology says about eternity, at the functional level we live as if this is all there is.
We live with a destination mentality instead of a preparation mentality. And as we begin to place our hope in God, we get connected to the promise of eternity, where all that is broken will be fixed and made new again. And as we do this, we look at life in a radically new way. We no longer ask the broken people, places, and things to be the source of our hope.
We know they can't be, because they are broken and in need of renewal just like we are. The result is a way of living that is different than you have ever known and a rest of heart that is more steadfast than you have ever experienced.Personal Statement Example 4. By: Jacqui.
