Overview

Heaven Is the Home You've Been Waiting For

In this world of fear, trials, and loneliness we often feel adrift--like we're still searching for a place where we can truly make ourselves at home. There's a longing for something more, something that makes us feel like we belong, something that resonates perfectly with who we were made to be. This longing is no small thing to be brushed off and forgotten--it's a guidepost letting us know we were made for another world. Earth is not our home. But it's close.

What we long for is the new earth, the place God has been preparing for our eternity with him. In Home, Elyse Fitzpatrick explores heaven and the afterlife, demonstrating that our final destination is not some dull, featureless space in the clouds, but rather a perfected earth. It's a real, physical place that we'll explore with real bodies. A place of beauty and wonder and free of all death and decay.

No need to chase a bucket list. On the new earth there will be no end of glorious sites and amazing activities, and we'll never run out of time to do them all. Includes questions for group discussion.

I received a copy of HOME: HOW HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH SATISFY OUR DEEPEST LONGINGS by Elyse Fitzpatrick, with a foreword by Paul David Tripp, from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. This is an intensely powerful book. I struggle to describe it in just a few sentences. Basically, it addresses our longing for something more. Everyone has felt this way at one time or another. There has to be something more out there, somewhere I belong… Elyse calls that place the New Earth. It is where God has been preparing for you. The book uses beautiful pose to describe our feelings and the glory of the New Earth so well that you can almost taste it. Elyse Fitzpatrick includes passages from scripture and her own takes on them. I found this refreshing. She also uses personal stories to help bring her readers to her. Overall, an exceptional book. It is easy to become lost in the pages. I can see HOME working well during religious discussion groups or for family meditation. (There are discussion questions included at the end) I am excited to see that Elyse Fitzpatrick is the author of multiple other books. I will have to look for them.
