Book Blog Tour Stop - "Heaven Is Now: Awakening Your Five Spiritual Senses To The Wonders of Grace" by Andrew Farley
Today, I'm hosting a book blog tour stop for the book, "Heaven Is Now: Awakening Your Five Spiritual Senses To The Wonders of Grace" by Andrew Farley.
About The Book:
What if heaven wasn't just meant to be experienced after we die? What if heaven can be enjoyed here on earth--right now?
In this life-changing book, bestselling author Andrew Farley reveals how you can take in the beauty of heaven no matter what your circumstances. With insight firmly rooted in the reality of pain and suffering, Andrew assures you that heaven is not merely some pie-in-the-sky dream for the future--it is now. He shows you how to awaken your five spiritual senses in order to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel the grace of heaven, even in the midst of trouble here on earth.
The heaven we can experience in this life lies within us, far beyond the reach of the world--but well within our grasp.
About The Author:
Andrew Farley is senior pastor of Ecclesia, an evangelical church that has resided on the high plains of West Texas for more than fifty years, and a bestselling author of several books, including Heaven Is Now. He serves as a faculty adviser for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and frequently speaks at churches and university groups around the United States and in Canada. Andrew is also a professor of Applied Linguistics at Texas Tech University in West Texas where he lives with his wife, Katharine, and their son, Gavin.
His website is www.andrewfarley.org
Taking his readers on a journey to explore the wonders of grace, using the five senses of sight, touch, smell, taste and sound, Andrew Farley gives a whole new perspective of what awaits us in Heaven, and how we can experience it here on earth now.
Using personalized letters from Heaven itself, in the voice of Jesus (and through his Scriptures), Farley gives a real feeling of personal experience through stories and examples to this slender but oh so important book.
"Heaven Is Now" would make a lovely gift to a new Christian, or be equally appropriate for the older, established Christian who needs a little lift in their spiritual walk.
