Overview

For a long time now, Christians have fretted about the possibility of being so heavenly-minded that they are of no earthly good. Yet in reality we Christians are often wayward and easily lose our bearings. Before we realize what we are doing, we have dropped our eyes from heaven’s glory to the fleeting things of this life. This world is our traveling-place, but we are continually tempted to make it our stopping-place. We are called to travel looking steadfastly forward to glory, but, like little children, we take a few steps and then turn aside to examine some worthless little trinket or to fiddle with something that may be dangerous!

In this thoroughly biblical and practical work Roger Ellsworth shows us that much of what distracts our minds and troubles our hearts in this life comes from our trying to make this world our home. But the truth is, this world is not our home. We are strangers and pilgrims here. Right thoughts of heaven will transform our whole thinking about things on this earth. In fact, the more heavenly-minded we are, the more earthly good we shall be!

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of numerous Christian topics. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important apologetic concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about heaven, the trinity, and marriage.

English Churchman

Roger Ellsworth’s book on heaven addresses a topic misunderstood and misrepresented in the media, the minds of lost masses, and the misguided views of many believers. This well thought out and organized work explores the width, depth, and breadth of Bible teachings on heaven with clear logic and precision. Interspersing literary examples, lyrics from hymns of faith and scholarly research, Ellsworth maintains the pre-eminence of Jesus Christ. . . . This work also enlightens the reader’s view of man’s spirit, soul, and body. Believer and unbeliever alike will find this book a comfort, a caution, and a challenge to live for him, the one who prepares a place for his own in glory.
