I have a lot of opportunities to read and review books. Most I turn down because of other time commitments. But occasionally a book comes along that the title just grabs me. Such is the case with Eternity Changes Everything written by Stephen Witmer. As soon as I began reading the first page I knew this inspired writing was just what I needed to read.
Stephen is Pastor of Pepperell Christian Fellowship in Pepperell, Massachusetts and teaches at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. The book reads easily and is loaded with excellent illustrations and food for thought. Stephen makes a beautiful case for getting excited about our future and about eternity.
Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
“If you know Jesus and know that his death is the source of your life, you have life. You don’t need to be anxious, to feel a faint terror at funerals, to lie awake wondering if you’ll make it.”
Stephen adds, “Knowing Jesus makes all the difference for our future; and knowing our future makes all the difference for our present.
The Biblical references he uses are so pertinent to living today that through his words he shows us how to live now in light of our future! Stephen gives us practical ways we can live in this world while preparing for our eternal world and life with our Heavenly Father.
