Best-selling author and Ecclesia Church pastor Andrew Farley reminds believers of their heritage in Christ, available even as they await complete fulfillment in heaven.
In Heaven Is Now, Farley structures his thoughts around five “spiritual senses” and invites the reader to feel the freedom of grace, hear the Spirit-bearing witness, see the finished work of Jesus, smell the fragrant aroma of Christ and taste the goodness of the Lord. Each chapter ends with “Heaven Speaks”—written as if Jesus were addressing the reader—and an “Awakening to Heaven” prayer.
Farley reminds believers that what they most long for is available now as a preview of all that their heavenly home offers. He offers a thoughtful look, not at golden celestial streets and beautiful music, but at a life lived in the awareness of God’s presence. —Eilene Ishler
