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.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Elyse Fitzpatrick
Located in: San Diego, CA
Submitted: August 02, 2016

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a married grandmother of 6 and the author of 22 books on Christian living and the gospel. I've got a Master's degree in Biblical Counseling and love ministering the good news to Christians who think they already know it.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I've gone through a very difficult season in my life with intense stripping of all that I once valued here so I decided I'd better try to discover what the world to come will be like.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Comfort and encouragement when life here isn't what they hope it will be.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  My imagination has been fired up with thoughts of the new earth and what our lives there will be like.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  C S Lewis, N T Wright and Randy Alcorn were particularly helpful to me in the writing of "Home."

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Imagine life. Life without tears, without shame, without injustice, without boredom. Imagine life without all those "why's?" and doubts and fears. Got that? Now imagine loving and loving and loving and never running out of time or energy, desire or concern. Imagine laughter and feasting and angels dancing. Imagine all wrongs righted, all shadows dispelled, all weakness made whole. Now don't imagine it on a cloud with a see-through body. Imagine it in your resurrected body on this resurrected earth. Christian, that's where you're headed. This isn't your Home...and that discomfort you feel when you want things to be better...different...is actually homesickness. Nothing here will cure it. But a day is coming when all those longings will be completely satisfied and then you'll smile.
