NCLA Review: The concept of living for eternity is at the core of this book. Tripp says that people have forgotten that there is something more than “right here, right now.” Choosing to live with the view that what really matters is eternity will make the here and now more joyful, peaceful, productive, and less fearful. If the reader looks through the lens of eternity, relationships, suffering and death will be put in perspective. He discusses many aspects of life: marriage, parenting, jobs as examples; and then tells his own forever story of understanding his anger and bringing it under control. The author uses Bible references, examples and stories of peoples’ lives to make his point. Readers who have never thought along these lines would find this book revealing. Rating: 3 —AMB ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310328187, Paperback)

Is this all you're living for? For years, pastor Paul Tripp understood we were 'hardwired for forever.' But he didn't understand that it was more than a valuable insight. It is a practical tool to help us face the disappointment of everyday life. Now he knows, and he can help you discover how to survive and thrive in the middle of your story, with the final chapter of heaven in view. Instead of embracing the world's motto---'you only live once'---follow Tripp as he unpacks the biblical truth of the world as a broken place, longing for a second chance. And come alive as you discover the meaning and redemption all this brokenness can bring to your life today. With practical insights on how eternity impacts your relationships, your job, your kids, and your deepest struggles, you'll be encouraged to relax into the eternal story God is writing for you. You really are hardwired for eternity, and this book reveals how you can begin to view all that happens in your life as preparation for Forever.

The here and now is simply not able to bear the weight of our expectations. We've lost an eternal perspective, and it hurts us every day. Job disappointment, relationship struggles, and quiet feelings of disillusionment all signal that something is not quite right. Life only makes sense when you realize that all of the situations, locations, and relationships of your life were not designed to be a final resting place for your hopes and dreams, but tools of preparation for a destination to come. Living without eternity puts pressure on the here and now to be what it cannot be and to deliver what it cannot deliver. Countless people deal daily with the frustration of a life that has no "forever." In Jesus Christ the hope of eternity is restored and, with it, a radical new way of understanding and facing the normal struggles of life in a world broken and waiting for restoration.… (more)
