Paperback
Heaven isn't only about the future. It has everything to do with life on earth - life "in between." Jonathan Edwards understood this well. His writings are full of his thoughts on heaven and how those thoughts should make a difference in our lives. This book focuses on key sermons by Edwards, showing readers how his insights can be applied to the challenges of living the Christian life in the twenty-first century. Edwards reminds us of our duty to live on earth in light of heaven and to endeavor to bring the realities and the beauty of heaven to earth-even if only in miniature. This book is for all believers wondering how to live on earth with a view of heaven, and those familiar with Edwards's works will have a special appreciation for this study.

And no one has done a better job than Stephen Nichols in making Edwards's thoughts on this subject accessible to the church today. His insightful analysis of Edwards's sermons on heaven is essential reading for those who've lost sight of the life-changing power of meditating on future glory. I highly recommend it." Dr. Sam Storms, Enjoying God Ministries"Jonathan Edwards's contagious vision of heaven on earth is compellingly captured by Stephen Nichols in this accessible book. It's been said that some Christians are so heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good. On the other hand, it's also the case that some are so earthly-minded that they are not fit for heaven. Nichols, following Edwards, argues that the solution to the errors of escapism and earthliness is not to find a happy medium, but rather to develop a radical new perspective that transforms both our vision of heaven and our life on earth. With Edwards as our guide, Nichols teaches us the biblical art of living the vision of heaven on earth." Justin Taylor, co-editor ofA God-Entranced Vision of All Things: The Legacy of Jonathan Edwards
