I just finished reading a book by Stephen Witmer called "Eternity Changes Everything". I have to say, I really enjoyed this book. I have never read anything by Witmer before and he is a great writer. The purpose of this book is to show us that as Christians, we should be excited about our future. We need to be certain where we will spend eternity.
The way Witmer writes is so casual and easy to read. He made me want to keep reading. He doesn't just touch on the greatness of heaven. Lots of authors do that. Witmer actually has parts of this book that would serve well for a nonbeliever to read. He backs up his belief of heaven. A lot of books about heaven that are written are really for Christians, or for comfort after the death of a loved one. Heaven is sometimes written about to make the grieving process easier, it seems. But the way it is written about in this book is that heaven is our goal. Our attainable goal. The goal that we should long for and look forward to, and literally be excited about. You can feel Witmer's passion and it's contagious.
I highly recommend this book. It's a great read, and not too mind-boggling. He speaks on the level of the average person, which I appreciate.
