Book Description

This is a pastoral, thoughtful, encouraging, challenging and, above all, radically God-centred book. The thirty brief but compelling chapters remind us that this world is not our home, that our destiny is ‘a city that has foundations whose designer and builder is God,’ and that we are called to live world-engaging, Christ-glorifying lives. It also highlights a most important aspect of the gospel’s message – the cosmic nature of Christ’s redemption, from its beginning in the wake of Adam’s tragic fall in humanity’s first home, the garden of Eden, to its consummation in the new heavens and new earth.

Here is a call to all Christians to live as pilgrims, pressing onwards and upwards to our eternal home.

    Here is a book for the believer, traveling from this world to the world to come. Mark Johnston writes as a fellow believer, to the heart of believers living in this broken world. He acknowledges that as followers of Christ, this world is not our home; we are longing for the New Heavens and New Earth to come. But as we live here on this earth, we must seek to honor God, and live faithful lives for Him until that day.

    This book is written in an easy, readable style that is broken up into five major sections. Each major section is broken up into shorter chapters (making up 30 total chapters).
    The first section focuses upon a Biblical theology of the Christian’s pilgrimage in this world from Genesis to Revelation.
    The second section focuses upon the person and work of Christ, who Himself came to this broken world, to redeem sinners.
    The third section focuses upon the Church of God, and their communal relationship in this world, as they travel through this world together.
    The fourth section of this book looks more at the individual Christian living his/her life here on earth.
    The final section focuses on looking ahead to heaven, and our eternal life with God.

    Each section keeps in mind the big picture of our Christian lives here in this fallen world.
    My personal favorite section was the first section, which focuses upon the pilgrim’s journey from a Biblical theology perspective. However, all of the book is useful and encouraging for the believer.

    I would encourage all believers to pick up a copy of this book, read it, and seek to live as faithful pilgrims in this world, looking to the world to come.
