You Were Made for Another World

In this world of fear, trials, and loneliness it's easy to feel adrift, like you're homesick for somewhere you've never been. This longing is no small thing to be brushed off and forgotten--it's a guidepost letting you know that you were made for a different place. This earth, as we know it, is not your home. But it's close. In fact, at times you can almost see your home from here.

What you long for is the New Earth--the place God has been preparing for your eternity with him. With heartfelt stories, personal reflection, and deep scriptural insight, Elyse Fitzpatrick explores heaven and the New Earth--showing that our assumptions about heaven and the realities of the New Earth are not one and the same. Your final destination is not a dull, featureless room in the clouds, but rather a perfected earth. It's an actual place full of beauty and wonder that we'll explore with real, perfect bodies. There's no need to chase a bucket list--on the New Earth there will be no end of glorious sites and amazing activities, and we'll never run out of time.

Includes questions for group discussion.

"As someone who grew up in the church and studying the Bible, yet without a full understanding of our eternal home--the New Heaven and the New Earth--this book not only expanded my understanding, it fed my longing. This is a book I will recommend again and again to those who long to understand what awaits believers beyond this life."--Nancy Guthrie, author of Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow
