New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge offers readers a breathtaking look into God's promise for a new heaven and a new earth. This revolutionary book about our future is based on the simple idea that, according to the Bible, heaven is not our eternal home--the New Earth is. As Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew, the next chapter of our story begins with "the renewal of all things," by which he means the earth we love in all its beauty, our own selves, and the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food, laughter and all that we hold dear. Everything shall be renewed "when the world is made new." More than anything else, how you envision your future shapes your current experience. If you knew that God was going to restore your life and everything you love any day; if you believed a great and glorious goodness was coming to you--not in a vague heaven but right here on this earth--you would have a hope to see you through anything, an anchor for your soul, "an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God" (Hebrews 6:19). Most Christians (most people for that matter) fail to look forward to their future because their view of heaven is vague, religious, and frankly boring. Hope begins when we understand that for the believer nothing is lost. Heaven is not a life in the clouds; it is not endless harp-strumming or worship-singing. Rather, the life we long for, the paradise Adam and Eve knew, is precisely the life that is coming to us. And that life is coming soon.… (mere)

While it's nice to see Christians writing books about heaven that aren't of the "I died and spent 15 minutes in heaven, and here's what it was like" variety, All Things New leaves a lot to be desired.

I almost gave up halfway through the book - the completionist in me willed me to finish what I began. The thing is, if you take out all the anecdotal stories and all the pop-culture film and novel quotations [CS Lewis's Narnia & JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth are both referenced way too much], this book would likely be a quarter of the length that it is. I won't begrudge an author's use of anecdotal stories, but this was truly excessive in my view.

Many, if not most of the Scripture quotations are coming from Eugene Peterson's THE MESSAGE, which, I should point out, is not a translation, but a very free paraphrase - it is sometimes powerful and brilliant while at other times it is seriously off target. Due to the inconsistencies of The Message, I find it difficult to take seriously an author's heavy reliance upon it.

I have often enjoyed John Eldredge's weekly podcast, but this book just doesn't do it for me. There are some good takeaways from All Things New, but there was way too much fluff to have to sift through to get to them. A much better book on the subject is Randy Alcorn's [b:Heaven|89376|Heaven|Randy Alcorn|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1406508230s/89376.jpg|86257], which I highly recommend for further reading.

Life after death, the Second coming of Christ and the character of the Kingdom of God are topics with which many Christians struggle. They're influenced by sermons, art, hope, and desires. What New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge tries to do is to let the Bible speak about these matters. Jesus Christ taught a lot about the Kingdom of God and in e.g. Isaiah and John's Revelation prophecies and visions give a glimpse of God making all things new, restoring heaven and earth to their true destination. In All Things New: Heaven, Earth, and the Restoration of Everything You Love emphasis is put on the consequences for us humans, the animals and the logical continuation of the life you live on the current planet for the rest of eternity. The here and not yet of the Kingdom. Sex trafficking, slavery as examples that will be turned into justice and liberation.

Edlredge leans heavily on the Narnia Chronicles by C.S. Lewis and the Lord of the Ring trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. The renewal of all things is all-encompassing, breathtaking and inspiring, way more interesting than a kind of Nirvana, harp playing and singing up in the clouds, or an eternal rest in peace. What if heaven is not our home, but a renewed earth our destination station? The author did his best to explain it all. Let's look forward to the Kingdom come. ( )

I won this in a GOODREADS giveaway. Sorry, but it was a little TOO holy-roller for me! But I know someone to re-gift this to who will actually appreciate the context! ( )
