Publishers Description Most people would be left destitute if they planned their futures as carelessly as theyve prepared for eternity. Drawing on the principles in 2 Corinthians 5:911, John Bevere reminds us that all believers will stand before God and receive what they have earned in life. In building their lives to be ready for that day, and maintaining an eternal frame of reference, readers will develop significant lives. In keeping sight of the goal, readers will learn to labor for rewards that endurefor timeless eternity.
From Publishers Weekly Bestselling Christian author Bevere (Under Cover; The Fear of the Lord) turns
his heart and pen to eternity. So many people, he says, live without heaven on
their minds, yet eternity is planted in their hearts. His goal is to open
readers' eyes to what awaits them: whether the end result will be horrible
suffering or great joy, all will face God's judgment. Bevere uses the
allegorical story of King Jalyn, his kingdom of Affabel, and the capital city
of Endel and its inhabitants to help readers understand how life choices
affect their eternal future. At first blush the allegory seems contrived, but
Bevere adds depth to characters such as Double Life, Deceived and Charity. He
is certain to offend some conservative evangelicals with his talk of visions
and dreams, and his opinion that Christians can sometimes lose their
salvation. Readers can't argue, however, with his knowledge of the Bible.
Bevere urges Christians to get to work for God and asks tough questions about
why some are not doing so. He doesn't sugarcoat his belief that heaven is
imminent and that many people, Christian and not, are wasting their lives on
useless pursuits and priorities. This book will linger long in the consciences
and hearts of readers. (Apr. 10) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Driven by Eternity Mar 25, 2007
This book should be a must read for everybody! Lots of scriptures references to tie the book point and scriptures. Thought provoking and life changing book!
Life Changing Mar 15, 2007
This book has changed my life. I accepted the Lord 28 years ago; however, I wasn't completely surrendering my life to him and I was carelessly taking His grace for granted. I sinned without giving it much of a thought. I was doomed for Hell. God means what He says. He doesn't let things slide like we do. Buy this book, read it, and repent. Eternal damnation is a high price to pay for a lax "Christian" life.

We are using this in our Tuesday night Bible Study along with the DVD. The material is awesome. It really make you think about your time on earth and how are spending it. John Bevere gives you some great points on eternity. The group discussion and questions at the end of the chapters are excellent.
