Item description for Eternity: Reclaiming a Passion for What Endures by Joseph M. Stowell...
Overview Dr. Stowell shares a startling insight about how Christians view the world in which they live--and how that perspective molds the kind of life they lead. He suggests Christians should live in a three-dimensional realm, and they must keep a balance between the world, inner spirituality, and heaven.
"Using heaven as our point of reference lends new balance to life on earth and provides fresh alternatives for a world filled with hollow pursuits", says nationally known teacher and author, Joe Stowell. We belong to the world to come. In fact, since that world has already been planted in our hearts, we are already citizens of heaven. This well-known and respected Bible teacher shows how triumph in this present world can only come when we realize that while we live here, we don't really belong here. We belong in heaven, along side our Father and Creator.

LIFE CHANGING BOOK! Oct 25, 2001
I really got a lot from this book. Stowell explains that in order to see life in its fullest meaning, the believer needs to see all three worlds: the world around us (earth); the world within (the Kingdom of Christ); and the world to come (heaven). Focusing on the eternal and prioritizing our worlds is key. Anyone searching to understand why a Christian may often feel "out of sync" should read this book.

Deep and Lasting Meaning in a Readable Style Jun 23, 1999
Rare is the day when I find a book whose content causes me to recall daily what I have learned, but Stowell's Eternity is just that. For months after I finished its pages, I was still bringing to mind specifically what he talked about. The principles he lays down concerning our focus are powerful and well worth the perusal of any follower of Christ.
A good study of the 3 kingdoms of Christianity!! Feb 3, 1999
For those who are looking for encouagement to make it through this "flat" existence, Dr. Stowell's work in this book is the answer. He uses scripture, and life experiences that get your eyes off the mundane and on the things of eternal value. This is my second time to read through "Eternity", and the Spirit of God is breaking through in areas I didn't even expect! Dr. Stowell does not ice over the rough stuff of life, but in his way brings light to those dark parts that you just don't hear alot these days. I recommend this book for all christians!!
