Publisher's Description

If life is a test of sorts, a journey preparing us for heaven—shouldn’t there be bits of heaven around us already? This book unveils them! In the book of Matthew, Jesus repeatedly describes heaven—and each time He uses ordinary, earthly examples. This world has many wonderful and mysterious aspects that we might think better suited to describe something as magnificent as heaven—but Jesus uses mustard seeds, hiring workers, children, and weeds as examples. Heaven—Here and Now considers those examples—chosen for a different culture in a different time—and applies them to the here and now, to the everyday stuff of our ordinary lives. It’s a beautiful preview of heaven.

 

 

Editorial Reviews

This book is exactly what its sub-title implies when it states True Stories of God’s Kingdom Here On Earth.  This is not a book to read to learn about heaven and what is there or what we will be doing there.  This book is, however, a book of incidents in peoples’ lives that reflect the true spirit of Christianity.

This book is not about when we get to heaven, but how to enjoy the glimpses of heaven here on earth.  Bits of the Lords graciousness, and heaven sent gifts are all around us, taking the time to see them is the trick. 



 



This book was filled with a large amount of mini short stories recognizing the true spirit of the Holy Spirit alive and working in this day and now, here and now.  With as many stories as this author has included in this book, you can be certain there is one if not may you will be able to relate to.  Life is full of goodness if we stop to enjoy those moments.  Life gets in the way, but true happiness is just a glimpse away, depending on whose eyes your are looking through.  As the saying goes, this book will help you to stop and smell the roses in others and your own lives.



 

I found this book to be uplifting.  I loved the fact their were such a wide variety of true examples in this book.  This is not a teach you how to change, or find new ways to live type of book.  But it is a self help book, because it helps you see what is and has been right in front of our eyes.  The one thing I found frustrating was the author, did not seem to have a straight forward outline for this book.  The organization seemed chaotic, rambling, and out of sequence to me, anyway.  But all in all, its a great feel good, change your day, change your outlook book.

    This book is exactly what its sub-title implies when it states True Stories of God's Kingdom Here On Earth. This is not a book to read to learn about heaven and what is there or what we will be doing there. This book is, however, a book of incidents in peoples' lives that reflect the true spirit of Christianity.

    I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked how many examples there were in this book. It thought the author did very well at expressing the many different ways the Lords' love is displayed every day by ordinary people. I only gave it a lower rating because I thought it could have been better organized. I did enjoy the stories and thought it was an uplifting book. This would be a good book to give to someone who needs encouragement.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
