Join long-time pastor and author Ray Galea as he takes you deep into “the most extraordinary chapter in the Bible”. With penetrating insight, good humour, and a disarming personal honesty, Ray opens up the wonders of this chapter and takes us to the heart of the Christian life.
From Here to Eternity also features special contributions from Christians who share their personal reflections on walking with God through suffering and finding real hope and comfort in the promises of Romans 8.
"This is a very good book. It is good because it is the work of a pastor-theologian who knows how to think his way through a passage of Scripture—in this case, Romans 8—and get it right. It is good because Ray Galea, the pastor-theologian in question, knows how to write simply and compellingly. It is good because it ably addresses some of the crucial pastoral challenges of our age without sliding into utopianism on the one hand or nothing but grim determination on the other. And finally, it is a good book because the appendices, especially two of the five, are worth the price of the entire work: what Ray says about predestination is gold (appendix 3), and so is Phillip Jensen’s reflection on the death of his grandson (appendix 5)."

The book goes through Romans 8 in short sections. The first half focuses on sin in the life of the Christian believer. I found it clear and encouraging. Each chapter ends with a case study about the author's struggle with anger. The second half is about suffering. Each chapter ends with a case study from a suffering believer. You could use this book in a book group, a Bible study group, or for personal reading or devotions. Just loved it!
