Deep within God’s Word lies a wondrous story like no other. A drama that originated before time began. An epic saga that resonates with the heartbeat of God. A story that reveals nothing less than the meaning of life and God’s great mission in the earth. From Here to Eternity provides an extraordinary glimpse into God’s highest passion and grand mission. What you discover will forever change your view of life, the church, and our magnificent God.
"From Eternity to Here is a masterpiece. A must read for those who believe and for others who want to believe. It reads like a movie on paper."
Dr. Myles Munroe, pastor and author of Rediscovering the Kingdom and God’s Big Idea

 

"Too often we see people react to what they don’t like about the church. In From Eternity to Here, Frank Viola offers up the doctrine which causes him to act on behalf of the church. Make no doubt about it—Frank is a provocateur and an artist– and both come through in this book. Frank continues to challenge the church-at-large with a powerful mind, an impassioned voice, and a love for the Bride of Christ. You need to get this book and wrestle with Frank through the biblical passages regarding our identity in Christ as His body and the mission our God has entrusted to us."

Ed Stetzer, author of Breaking the Missional Code

 

"In From Eternity to Here, Viola shows us that we’ve settled for dry doctrines and rote religious behavior when what God wants—and what God has always wanted—is to engage us in a passionate love story that will never end. As Viola unfolds the glorious story of God’s quest for a bride, readers will find their imaginations inspired and their lives transformed. The sheer beauty of God’s magnificent plan compels our allegiance and revolutionizes our lives. This re-telling of the ‘old, old story’ is a much needed gift to the church today."

Greg Boyd, pastor, theologian, and author of Letters from a Skeptic, Myth of a Christian Nation, and God at War

 

"Viola artfully weaves his own story into the drama of redemptive embrace, making God’s love both a deeply personal affair as well as something of an existential quest in which we all have a part to play. As such it is ‘the old, old story’ retold for a new and contemporary audience. It is a great work of narrative theology made very accessible for any reader."

Alan Hirsch, missional strategist and author of The Forgotten Ways

 

"This poetic exposé by Frank Viola is indeed a masterful work of art—a modern day mystical classic for sure. It is with a burning heart that I commend to you From Eternity to Here."

Dr. James W. Goll, author of The Lost Art of Practicing His Presence

    Even though I've been a Christian for decades and studied the Bible, I never understood. Concepts like "Bride of Christ" and "God's House" were well-worn phrases but I never understood the passion and mission of God until I read this book. I have purchased 5 additional copies to give away.

    In my library, I have many books. Viola's three part view of God's purpose in history is unmatched by any theologian I've ever read: Luther, Calvin, Lindsey, Strong, Berkhof, Lucado, Grenz, Oden, etc.

    He book pulsates with God's overflowing love story for the Church as revealed through Christ's Bride, God's House, and a new creation.

    He puts the Church at the center of God's purpose and thought as believers in Jesus "are swept up in the unfolding drama of God's romance."

    This is the best of both theology and inspirational reading. Buy the book. Read it!

    From Eternity to here is an amazing book. I have been a Christian for 30 years and discovered so many things about God, His word, His plans. Frank takes us on a journey through the whole bible, weaving threads of God's love, His plans for Humanity. Working from Old Testament and new and back to old and threading the two covenants together so wonderfully. Showing Gods' grace , His Plans for us and the role we as the church in preparing our lives, drawing near to God and Knowing the person of Jesus Christ. I am going through this book again and taking notes as the Holy Spirit again leads me as I read such a wonderful love story that is all about Him, the Saviour!! 10 out of 10 Frank.

    As I read From Eternity to Here, each chapter resonated with something deep within me. It was as if I was hearing about the greatest news ever told for the first time; and yet, it seemed to also affirm something that I already knew. The reason being that Frank Viola masterfully examines and traces the central themes that run throughout the Scriptures from beginning to end. As those themes are developed, the beauty and majesty of Jesus Christ is seen more clearly, and His astonishing love for the world and His people is revealed more fully.After reading this book, I view the Bible differently; I view the Lord and how I relate to Him differently; I view my calling and purpose in life differently; I view the church and her function differently; and I view lost humanity differently. A big thanks to Viola for his dedication in unfolding the Scriptures in a creative way and unveiling the priceless truths that are contained within them.

    I have read everything I can get my hands on by Frank Viola, and I suggest you do the same. Frank's newest book is a must read for any minister, seeker or follower of Christ. This is his greatest work yet. "Eternity" should become an instant classic. Most of Viola's other books deal with church life and church history. "From Eternity To Here" is about church identity. Few books get to the heart of the matter like this one. For over 40 years I've heard (and repeated) the mantra "Christianity is Relationship Not Religion". When I put this book down, I took hold of those words with greater force than I have in years, maybe decades. The bumper sticker says "Smile God Loves You". This book didn't just make me smile...it made me weep...for joy
