Do Christians overemphasize the hope of the future to the neglect of needs in the present?
Are discussions about the end times unimportant so long as we all “get to heaven” in the end?
In Coming Home, a team of eight leading Bible teachers offers us a vision of the new heaven and new earth that doesn’t just impact our view of the future—it also has the potential to change how we live today. These eight essays will stir up within us a longing for our future home as we eagerly await Jesus’s glorious return.
