Overview

Blending pastoral warmth, philosophical depth, storytelling skill, and literary craft, Mark Buchanan encourages Christians to make heaven, literally, our "fixation" — filling our vision, gripping our heart, and anchoring our hope. Only then, says Buchanan, can we become truly fearless on this earth, free from the fear of losing our life, property, status, title, or comfort; free from the threat of tyrants, the power of armies, and the day of trouble. Buchanan reawakens the instinctive yearning for things above, showing that only the heavenly minded are of much earthly good.

Things Unseen is a book not about heaven itself, the author tells us, but about ¿heavenly-mindedness.¿ He observes that this world is not enough for us. He writes about feelings that are both ¿laughter and mourning, spring and winter, homecoming and exile,¿ longings that are really homesickness for heaven. He points out that we¿re all dying, and that we¿d best all look up. This is not the only Mark Buchanan book I¿ve thoroughly enjoyed, but it¿s probably my favorite. He really gets it.
