Abstract:

This book introduces a vision for daily living that addresses what we confess to hope for but usually dont: eternal life in heaven. We have been misled by historical assumptions and popular prophecies to think of heaven as irrelevant and intimidating, but by reexamining the biblical picture of heaven as terrestrial and urban, and as a relevant resolution to the current cosmic story, we form a framework for living with godly purpose in our vocation, citizenship, recreation, and families.
