This World is Not My Home (Paperback)
This is a pastoral, thoughtful, encouraging, challenging and, above all, radically God-centered book. The thirty brief but compelling chapters remind us that this world is not our home, that our destiny is ‘a city that has foundations whose designer and builder is God,’ and that we are called to live world-engaging, Christ-glorifying lives. It also highlights a most important aspect of the gospel’s message – the cosmic nature of Christ’s redemption, from its beginning in the wake of Adam’s tragic fall in humanity’s first home, the garden of Eden, to its consummation in the new heavens and new earth.
Here is a call to all Christians to live as pilgrims, pressing onwards and upwards to our eternal home.
