Customer Reviews For "Driven By Eternity"Write Your Own Review
This book is a must read for every Christian. It is insightful and based on Scriptures in the Bible. Nearly everything John writes about eternity is backed up with scriptural references. He challenges the reader to live for eternity and the rewards we will receive if we are obedient. He includes an allegory in the book which is inspiring reading. He shares stories of how people thought they were going to go to heaven, but when they get to their judgement, it's another story. I would really encourage you to read this book - it will change your perspective, if you're not already living with eternity in mind. Buy it!!
Previously to reading "Driven by Eternity" I had read Bevere's other publications, 'Bait of Satan" and " Undercover", and enjoyed them. I was sadly disappointed by "Driven by Eternity" as it was a confusing mish mash of Genres. Fairytale, scripture, allegory, fiction and historic quotes from the like of Polycarp, all tumbled around together like towels and dead fish in a tumble dryer. It just doesn't work..the fish are half cooked and inedible and the towels are damp and stinky. I'm a good reader with theology and writing qualifications, yet I struggled to read the entire book. Read everything from Bevere and his wife Lisa... except this.
