    A Life-Changing Book, A Must-Read!!

    I would give this book 5.5 stars if I could! From Eternity to Here paints an absolutely breathtaking portrait of God's relentless, passionate love for us that's interwoven throughout the Bible. Viola's articulate description of our Lord's extravagant love brought tears to my eyes on several occasions. This book is nothing short of life-changing. I will never view my Lord the same way again. I will never look at scripture the same way. I can no longer view myself or the body of Christ through the same eyes. From Eternity to Here has helped me to discover God's purpose for me. This is one of those few books that EVERY Christian MUST read.

    Excellent Insight Into God's Ultimate Purpose with Humanity

    With the release of "Pagan Christianity" and "Reimaging Church" in the past two years, Frank Viola's message has brought about a great deal of commotion in Western Christianity. His straight-forward manner will confront fan and critic alike with the theme of his writing. His writing style is full of content without being overly intellectual. Viola manages to grad the attention of the reader and keep it until the conclusion.

    In his latest book, "From Eternity to Here," Frank Viola expresses his passion for, what he calls, "God's eternal purpose." Stepping out of a self-focused view of Christianity, that views all events in relation to personal benefit, Viola paints a picture of the heart of Father before the Fall. What was on the heart of God before humanity fell? What remains God's primary purpose in the scope of eternity? These questions are addressed throughout the book in a biblically-sound, narrative manner.

    As one who has read many theological books, it is clear that Frank Viola has a deep passion for Jesus Christ and for His Bride, the Church, comprised of those who walk in a life of intimacy with their Savior. Many books currently being released in the Christianity marketplace seem heavy on opinions, but empty and lifeless. It is clear that Frank Viola's message, though controversial to some, comes from a heart of passion for Christ and Him alone.

    I heartily recommend this book to those interested in knowing what God's purpose really is.

    Breath of fresh air!

    This is ceratinly a breath of fresh air that gives life to the dead, fragmented Christianity as practiced today. If you are ready, this book will ceratinly give you a glimpse of something envisioned in the scriptures...
