Publisher's Description

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.

    Reading Elyse Fitzpatricks newest book, Home: How Heaven and the New Earth Satisfy Our Deepest Longings, has helped me set my heart and mind heavenward. The book overflows with Scriptures and Bible-based commentaries about heaven and the New Earth.

    Fitzpatrick also clarifies some of the confusing and non-Biblical ideas many have about heaven, and shecarefully explains the homesickness Christians feel living here on earth while our true citizenship is in heaven.

    Home in the place to come will truly be Home for us because it is where the Lord is. We miss him. We feel so homesick because we are away from the Lord right now, she writes.

    In addition to offering wonderful glimpses of what heaven and the New Earth will be like, Fitzpatrick offers very fascinating thoughts on how the church on earthis like stepping into another realm.

    The church on earth is the doorstep of the church in heaven it is the shining portal through which we catch glimmers of golden light it is through the church that we are reminded that He provides all our needs, pardons all our sins, and protects all of us all our days, she writes.

    She adds that, The church, when its functioning as it should be, should almost enable us to experience the world to come; it should make the division between here and there nearly transparent the church should be a place where we get glimpses, whiffs, whispers of it [heaven] from time to time.

    Encouragement and comfort abound throughout this book, especially for those who are suffering.

    Life in the New Earth is only good news to those for whom this old earth no longer promises satisfaction, she writes. The Word of the Lord to all who trust in Him is that everlasting joy is coming, and nothing can stop it!

    Amen to that!

    Please note: In exchange for this honest review, I received a free copy of the book from Bethany House Publishers.

    Home was a beautiful book by Elyse Fitzpatrick. It was well written, and a great encouragement. It spoke to areas I have been struggling in, with such a depth, that I often felt like crying. I found while reading that the struggles I face are nothing new they are a result of my own sin nature and the fallen world we live in, yes but the encouragement came with the realization that others face them as well.

    There were several times I would read a well written passage out loud to my sister that was particularly encouraging to me, speaking about issues that have seemed really *big* in my life recently. The way the words are strung together are beautiful, and her words are so descriptive. This was not an Heaven Tourism book..it was a book about a Biblical look at what our eternal home with our Heavenly Father will be like.

    I liked the fact that the author used commentary from some familiar authors John Calvin and Charles Spurgeon, to name a few.

    While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, being a postmillenialist I did disagree with Mrs. Fitzpatricks beliefs in the end times. But it was a minor thing as my pastor said, I am not going to shun someone or break fellowship because we hold different eschatological views. And as this book was about our Heavenly Home not about how or when that will occur there were very few passages dealing with eschatology.

    I would give this book 4.5 stars, and I would read it again and pass it along to friends as I tend to do when a book is too good to keep to myself =}

    This book is different from any other I've read on our eternal home. Rather than giving descriptions of what it will be like, Fitzpatrick desires that we have a deeper understanding of and a deeper desire for our eternal home.

    She asks us to recognize our homesickness. She shares her own disrupting experiences of life being turned on end, causing her to focus on heaven. She clarifies misunderstandings about heaven. She explores the resurrection of Jesus and what that tells us. She relates the characteristics of the Garden of Eden to our final home (such as animals). She imagines what the New Jerusalem will mean to us. She reminds us that the sight of His face will wipe out our bucket list. She also writes about the possible role of the congregated church in being a thin place.

    I really like Fitzpatrick's emphasis on what heaven will mean to us. That makes us long for it more than mere descriptions would. I also like her writing about what we can do now to prepare for our future home. Nothing we do here is in vain, she writes. We can even hasten His day by living godly lives (2 Peter 3:11-14). And I like that she reminds us that our future home is ours by grace alone.

    There were a few surprising ideas in this book. Fitzpatrick relates a hiking experience and then thinks of hiking the New Earth, never getting tired or sick. That the New Earth would have mountains and canyons is not something I've thought about. Another thought provoking idea was about worship. We find no command to Adam and Eve to worship. Fitzpatrick concludes that before sin, everything Adam and Eve did was worship. She proposes that all we do on the New Earth will be worship, such as hiking.

    Fitzpatrick says she has written this book to make us thirst for heaven like never before and prepare us for living our life here, always keeping our life there in view. She has certainly convinced me of how deeply satisfying our future home will be.

    If, with every passing day, you long for heaven more and more, this book will stir up that desire in you. Perhaps you don't long very much for heaven. Perhaps you have been trying to numb your desire to live somewhere other than in this sinful world. I highly recommend this book as it will reveal to you the believer's deeply satisfying future home.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
