Once wealthy landowners, Thong Van Pham's family was shattered by the tumultuous events of the twentieth century: the festering French occupation of Indochina, the Japanese invasion during World War II, and the Vietnam War. Told in dazzling chapters that alternate between events in the past and those closer to the present, The Eaves of Heaven brilliantly re-creates the trials of everyday life in Vietnam as endured by one man, from the fall of Hanoi and the collapse of French colonialism to the frenzied evacuation of Saigon.
"Heart Breaking But Uplifting"
How the "War in Heaven" impacts our lives, churches, families, schools, governments and businesses today! The dark powers of the Second Heaven battle the Third Heaven’s angelic warriors for the destiny of the First Heaven - where we live. The result: the ‘spillover’ of furious spiritual warfare in our world. Then comes the most powerful shout ever: "Tetelestai… It is finished!"
Combining intense theological research with his signature writing style, Gerald Welch crafts the definitive story of the War in Heaven. Set in the world of The Last Witness, War in Heaven establishes itself as the first inclusive recount of the war that changed the fate of Heaven and Earth!
Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It's a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers.
