You May Be Suffering from Eternity Amnesia … The Bible assures us that God has placed eternity in our hearts. It tells us we are created for pleasure, wired for joy—all with God at the center. But in a world that is broken and suffering, it’s easy to forget this, living instead with a pack–it–all–in mentality, loading up the here and now with expectations that will only be fulfilled in eternity. Fortunately we don’t have to live frustrating, disappointing lives. Instead, we can take heart, realizing that life doesn’t feel right because it isn’t right. It’s not meant to be—not yet anyway. Paul Tripp points out that having an eternity perspective will enable us to live for something bigger than ourselves and larger than this moment. No longer trapped in the shrunken kingdom of “right here, right now,” we will be able to lead lives of greater significance and peace.Through stories, examples, and biblical teaching, Tripp rehabilitates the notion of an afterlife, not as some vague, ethereal place in which we will someday reside, but as a living, robust reality that Scripture promises. This is Paul’s latest book and is now in stock!!!
Check out these reviews of the book:
Paul David Tripp is one of the most insightful and quotable writers around. In Forever, he brilliantly addresses our crying need for an eternal perspective. This book is superbly written and breathtakingly on target. I found myself exclaiming “yes” over and over. Read this book, and live what it teaches, for God’s glory and for your good—and the good of everyone you influence. I wholeheartedly recommend Forever.

Most of us are clueless as to how our view of eternity completely shapes and defines the way we live, but you are holding in your hands a clear answer to that nagging question, “What is life about anyway?” Paul David Tripp is not only one of the most well–respected Christian thinkers of our day; he is utterly practical. It’s why I love to read everything he writes. And I highly recommend Forever to you!

Paul Tripp wants to jar us out of what he calls our “eternity amnesia.” He succeeded with me, anyway. I had forgotten about the many ways Christ’s promise of eternal life infuses this life with a sense of daily awe and joy.

Paul Tripp probingly identifies the widespread eternity amnesia that exists in the American church. Being the soul–physician that he is, he brilliantly shows how we were created, wired, and designed for something bigger, brighter and better than “right here, right now” with a meaning, purpose, and perspective that is, quite literally, out of this world.
