Overview

What if heaven wasn't just meant to be experienced after we die? What if heaven can be enjoyed here on earth--right now?

Bestselling author Andrew Farley shows us how to take in the beauty of heaven no matter what our circumstances. Firmly rooted in the reality of pain and suffering in his own life, Andrew assures readers that heaven is not some pie-in-the-sky dream for the future--it is now. He shows us how to awaken our five spiritual senses in order to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel the grace of heaven, even in the midst of trouble here on earth. He says the heaven we can experience in this life lies within us, far beyond the reach of the world--but well within our grasp.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In his latest book, Farley (God Without Religion) explores ways to live life and love God through the five senses. Each sense is loosely attached to a spiritual idea; for example, the “hear” section is about knowing which voice to listen to in one’s life and the “see” section is about being aware of what Jesus accomplished. As in his last two books, Farley effortlessly weaves scripture into his own thoughts. Yet unlike the last two books, the overall style of the text feels impersonal and detached. Recycled material (e.g., summaries of movies like Shawshank Redemption and Groundhog Day) and sermon speak (e.g., “Flip over to Matthew”) feel superficial compared to the personal tales he’s relayed in the past. And although each chapter contains a prayer, study questions are relegated to the back of the book, making for a less interactive read. Readers who can get past the standard sermon fodder and take the time to employ the back matter will learn how to refocus their lives on God. Agent: Andrea Heinecke, Alive Communications. (Apr.)
