Heaven on Earth Aug 8, 2007
The author of Bringing Heaven Down to Earth: Connecting This Life to the Next, Nathan L. K. Bierma, has written an excellent book, with his focus on living life here on earth with a Christian perspective, based on the idea that this life leads into the next, when the New Heaven will be on this earth. His ideas are soundly based on Scripture and give the reader an interesting vision of what the new heaven will be and where it will be. The book, which is a delight to read as it is so well written, raises thoughtful questions as to how Christians should be actively working in the world today, making their presence known and felt. Bierma discusses practical ways of living, and clearly connects our present actions to our future lving in God's presence. This is a truly worthwhile book to read.
A Refreshing Read Nov 22, 2005
Nathan Bierma's book is a breath of fresh air about a topic as old as the ages but as pertinent as could possibly be in our world. Well written, humorous, and witty, Nathan Bierma has successfully transitioned from Chicago Tribune writer, to college professor, to talented author.
Bringing Heaven Down to Earth reminds us of the myriad of ways in which modern culture, so often running on an "engine of aimless ego," fills up our time and distracts us from our purpose here on earth. A purpose to serve the Lord and live forever with Him in Heaven. But if we believe that this is truly our final purpose, why then are we never talking about it? Why do we plan all our lives for retirement, but think little of what comes after it? This book gives us reasons to remember how history ends and what it means for our lives today.
With his pertinent perspective on modern culture Bierma weaves through its intricacies and help bring us out of the maze with a clearer vision of what is to come. As we fill our lives up with stuff, we lose sight of the fact that just because we don't know when eternity will arrive, that doesn't mean it won't. And when we are asked about the meaning of life many today feel they don't have the time to consider it. Bierma 's book is a quick and excellent read which brings a new life to these age-old, even if oft-ignored, questions.
Bring Heaven Down to Earth is a critical reflection on an important subject that leaves readers with a variety of things to ponder and restores a sense of hope to all those lost in the confusion of eschatology and the maze of modernity.
