Publisher's Summary

Anyone can see it: We're captivated by the idea of eternity. No generation or culture can resist its draw. And some part of you already knows this, doesn't it? It's the reason you're thinking about buying this book.

God created us with eternity in our hearts because this life is merely a glimpse of what's to come. But what do we know about eternity? Is there more to it than pitchforks and harps? And if so, is any of it relevant to the life we're living now?

In Driven by Eternity, best-selling author John Bevere uses an eye-opening allegory and extensive Scripture to paint a vivid picture of the way our lives on earth shape our eternal existence.

The truth is, our response to the cross doesn't just determine where we'll spend eternity. It also determines how we'll spend it. Life beyond that final breath isn't just about heaven or hell - it's much more wonderful than that.

1 of the 10 Most Important Books You'll Ever Read

Any additional comments?

Driven By Eternity is not for the spiritually squeamish. Yet it contains a message that has eternal consequences for everyone.

Too many people think it's okay to recite the "Sinner's Prayer," ask Jesus to come into their hearts, and then go back to living their old lives without even think about developing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Yes, it is faith that saves us, but as James chapter 2 says, "faith without works is dead." Driven By Eternity urges you to start LIVING for Christ, and not just being complacent and living a lukewarm (or even cold) life here on earth.

And Christians are so focused on earthly matters that they often forget about the eternal treasures we lay up in Heaven. Driven By Eternity presents a clear, Biblical case for entering a deep relationship with God, following His will for our lives, and setti g our sites instead on eternity.

Another HUGE bonus to this audiobook is insertion of the 2+ hour-long drama "Affabel: Window of Eternity," written by John Bevere. This is a professionally-recorded audio "movie" that is as good as any Hollywood film you've ever seen or will ever see. "Affabel: Window of Eternity" is a parable of five young people who live their lives in an "earthly" kingdom of Endel, and then are whisked away to the "heavenly" kingdom of Affabel where they stand in front of the Judgment Seat of the King (voiced by John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli in Lord of the Rings and Salah in the Indiana Jones movies). This, of course, represents Christians standing in front of the Judgment Seat of our Lord and King Jesus Christ. Just this audio drama alone is life-changing, and is worth the price of this book!

If you're looking for a light, breezy read constantly patting you on the back and telling you what a great person you are in God's eyes (like a Joel Osteen book), this ain't it. Driven By Eternity is a jarring, compelling, challenging book. It is powerful and life-changing. Download this commit to listening to it, and you'll never be the same again.

Living Your Calling Driven by Eternity

This audiobook was tremendously right on time for the place I am in my life! I am truly grateful to the Lord Jesus for John and Lisa Bevere's ministry! John truly gives a prophetic exhortation to live life driven by eternity, driven by the Lord's standards. This book has truly hurt me in great ways and has brought to light that I very much do matter in the Kingdom of God just as much as all other believers. This book has encouraged me to strive to pray, seek and discover my God given calling to advance His Kingdom for His glory! My mind is no longer earthly minded but yet have my hopes are set on Eternity! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is truly questioning what their calling is and where they will spend eternity. Live your best life for Jesus and be driven by eternity!!!

This book is a life-changing book if you use it as a Bible study it will change your life!

John Bevere is one of my favorite authors. He writes with authority'and uses all kinds of scripture to back up everything that he says. This book will make you think about eternity especially as a Christian. There is an allegory done as a drama in the audio version that is riveting and life-changing. Love this book

Amazing!!

I've already told many friends and family that if I had to recommend only one book to someone (besides the Bible), it's probably Driven by Eternity. This book is full of so much truth necessary to the Christain life.

I'll probably listen to it again and buy the work book. I know there is still so much I can get out of this book.

Life changing!!!

This by far is one of the most influential book I've read thus far. Such an eye opener, honest, true and bible based. Every Christian should read this book.
The author truly has an anointing on his life to be able to deliver such a message so well! This book has changed my mindset and my life for the better. I God will continue to use him to touch much more life.
I now have a deeper understanding of eternity, what it means to truly serve God and walk in His purpose!

You won't regret reading this book, the audio was amazing but I will be buying a hard copy as I will be referring back to this book throughout this year!

SAVED MY LIFE

I've been a Christian forever - yet the author's unpacked things I thought I knew yet heading for hell... thx LORD!

He's discussed topics like:

- forgiveness
- sharing ALL of the WORD
- GOD is just and fair
- sharing GOD's love with family/friends urgently!

I've mentioned subjects raised in this to every Christian I've spoken to and make no apology for that - you matter to me.

I'll definitely be reading and listening to this book again, but using it as a practical manual!

I don't want to hear JESUS say, "Depart from ME I never knew you..."


See you in ETERNITY

Eye opening

I have been a Christian for many years but after listening to this book, I realise that I have not lived with eternity in mind. John Bevere has carefully shown through scripture and little else that there will be an accounting for EVERYONE on what we have done with the life the Lord has given us. Please read/listen to this book, no matter what you know or think you know about what happens once this life is over. I will likely get the print version to be able to follow the scripture references at my own pace. But I have also enjoyed this audiobook as I’ve been able to listen while I do work around the house and the part of the book presented as an allegory of heaven works very well in audio. The book not only sounds a clear warning against living a complacent life as a Christian but also shows how you can get back on the right path if you realise (as have I) that you have been doing just that!

A wake up call

I've considered myself a pretty good Christian doing mission work and being saved out of a rebellious past. But hearing this message shook me to the core. I realised my heart had become bitter with unforgiveness which I justified because the had in fact wronged me.
This book demonstrated through scripture how far I had backslide and helped me to forgive and release the bitterness; thank you Lord for another chance.
