Item description for For a Time We Cannot See: Living Today In Light of Heaven by Crawford Loritts...
Overview Christians are often told to focus more on eternity. In a friendly yet "straight talk" approach that will appeal to men in particular, Dr. Loritts shows what such a heaven-focused life actually looks like.
Publishers Description It is nearly impossible to reach mid-life without some reflection upon one's desire to leave a legacy and build for an unseen future. Loritts believes that these yearnings experienced by "second halfers" are actually rooted in a longing for eternity in heaven. He writes, "Those of us who are followers of Christ need to be reminded that there is a place that is really ours, a home for which we are created. God has given us the gift of eternal life and a place in heaven, and He has placed the longing for heaven in our hearts. This is our home, our destiny, and our calling." Loritts' wisdom is at once down-to-earth and biblical. The reader will see a transparent author who is journeying through these issues himself and will be admonished to examine his or her present priorities in view of eternity.

He goes on to point out the inconsistency of our fragmented, harried, perspective on achievement, and affluence. He then challenges the reader to rather than living for the present surrender ourselves to the call of heaven, a destiny of meaning and significance.
Filled with profound, thought provoking challenges the reader is called to consider the very foundational truths of the Christian life, accountability for our choices, and the promise of reward for endurance in our Christian walk.

He describes the inner desire for significance and the importance of keeping perspective and focusing our accomplishments on God, investing in others, and helping others come to know the Savior.
