Between Heaven and Earth
This book will put in perspective what "Heart in Heaven, Hand in the Harvest" really means. I can't tell you how much I loved this book and found it inspiring, helpful and convicting! But I would recommend this book to everyone, from a non believer to someone who has been a follower of Jesus for years.
I have to admit when I started reading I thought the book would be about what heaven is like and what we’ll be doing there and Steve Berger does talk about it, using scripture. However the focus is to get us to see what heaven will be like and how it changes the way we view life here on earth. He uses scripture to show us what our mission is here on earth. He writes about understanding and knowing the Power of God's Word, the Power of the Holy Spirit and the rewards of Heaven!
A phrase he uses over and over is “having our hearts in heaven, but our hands in the harvest.” He shares the joy and hope of having your heart rooted and grounded in heaven while living a life that is full of faith, encouragement and purposefully working to produce fruit.
The author and his wife lost there son in an accident many years previous and instead of wasting away in their grief and sadness, they decided to learn all they could about the place their son now resided. Between Heaven and Earth, is the result of a lot of research on the part of the author and also the result of his study of Heaven he did with the church he pastors.
I received a free copy of Between Heaven and Earth~Finding Hope, Courage, and Passion Through a Fresh Vision of Heaven from Bethany House in exchange for a review of this book, however I only review books that I would recommend.
