Book: All Things New, by John Eldredge

This book was a major inspiration and resource for the New Heights' upcoming teaching series on Heaven. It gives a perspective on Heaven that is all about renewal, restoration, and hope.

“If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. The Apostles themselves, who set on foot the conversion of the Roman Empire, the great men who built up the Middle Ages, the English Evangelicals who abolished the Slave Trade, all left their mark on Earth, precisely because their minds were occupied with Heaven. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think about the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth ‘thrown in’; aim at earth and you will get neither.”
– C.S. Lewis
“If heaven is actually like that, how should we live now?”
1. Heaven will actually be on earth.
1. Heaven will actually be on earth.

2. There are not enough hopes and dreams in this world to sustain us. Thus, we need to be thinking about Heaven…all the time.

3. Sadness will be Permanently Unmade
“Resurrection . . . means that every horrible thing that ever happened will not only be undone and repaired but will in some way make the eventual glory and joy even greater.” It’s like at the end of The Lord of the Rings, when Sam asks Gandalf, “Is everything sad going to come untrue?”
– Timothy Keller

4. We Will See Jesus
Hope is "the confident anticipation that goodness is coming."
"How you envision your future impacts your current experience more than anything else.”
"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 a vague heaven, but right here on this earth - you would have a hope to see you through anything. You would have an anchor for your soul, 'an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God'”
