Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author John Eldredge offers listeners a breathtaking look into God's promise for a new heaven and a new Earth.

This revolutionary book about our future is based on the simple idea that, according to the Bible, heaven is not our eternal home - the New Earth is. As Jesus says in the Gospel of Matthew, the next chapter of our story begins with "the renewal of all things", by which he means the Earth we love in all its beauty, our own selves, and the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food, laughter, and all that we hold dear. Everything shall be renewed "when the world is made new".

More than anything else, how you envision your future shapes your current experience. If you knew that God was going to restore your life and everything you love any day, if you believed a great and glorious goodness was coming to you - not in a vague heaven but right here on this Earth - you would have a hope to see you through anything, an anchor for your soul, "an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God" (Hebrews 6:19).

Most Christians (most people, for that matter) fail to look forward to their futures because their view of heaven is vague, religious, and frankly boring. Hope begins when we understand that for the believer nothing is lost. Heaven is not a life in the clouds; it is not endless harp strumming or worship singing. Rather, the life we long for, the paradise Adam and Eve knew, is precisely the life that is coming to us. And that life is coming soon.

Hope. Wonder. Anticipation. Life.

Never disappointed with John's books. As with others, this book is like the bridge on his grandfather's ranch: full of beauty and adventure that connects me with Jesus. Thanks, John!

At last! Something to hope for besides singing hymnals in the clouds forever!

I thought I was weird for always wondering if there would be water in Heaven. I even started thinking maybe it would be more like earth than we are told. Being raised up Southern Baptist, my learning as a young child was more about “making it into Heaven” rather than what that life might hold for us all.
This book is a refreshing take on what possibilities might be coming our way.
I highly recommend this book if you have ever in your life wondered what may be next...whether you currently believe in Jesus or not.

Chapter 2 and 10 are worth the whole read.

Years of seeing these scriptures and not knowing what to fully do with them, this author unabashfully addresses the things that Jesus, Peter and Paul seem to always come back to; the deep invocations, we don't seem to fully connect with as they do. As if our imagination a different end to the story that God promised since the very beginning

Something all Believers should think about...

I loved this book, and anyone who is a believer should listen to this and think about what Eldridge and the bible is saying to us.

Wonderful book

So much hope is in here. Solid dependable and tangible. As in other books John describes our longings and dreams and how they marry with Gods desires and hopes. Always better to hear it read by the author too!
Thankyou....thankyou!

Amazing book

One of the best books I have listened to in a long while. John Eldredge, reading his own book, is medicine to the soul. Quite a few tears I must say in the earlier chapters because the message of the book just seems to connect with the human condition and the longing to know God, the longing to have hope in a hopeless world, and the need to know it will be ok in the end. Of course it will be so much more than ok.

Throughout the book you can't help but carry a sadness for those who don't know Jesus ... so many in my own family. If only they knew what I knew and could hear the words of this book. I resolve to prayer more diligently for them.

Thank you John Eldredge for an awesome piece of work

what was the book about again?

Honestly. If you gave me money right now I could not tell you what this book was about. Granted I listened in bed but other than God and the new creation I could not tell you anything more. This may well be one of those books written for the sake of writing a book. Nothing inherently wrong with the book; just forgettable.

Life changing.

This is worth your time and money. Listen to it several times and really let it sink in. I had such a case of FOMO in my life that really affected my relationships in every direction until I read this and realised we miss out on nothing. Thank you John E.
