Book Description

Reach through the fog of this life…and see the world beyond.

From the author of the bestselling book Heaven, here are 60 meditations that will inspire you to live each day with an eternal perspective.

Spiritually speaking, we live in the Country of the Blind. Sin has blinded us to the truth about God and Heaven, both of which are real yet unseen. But just as the physically blind must accept by faith there are stars in the sky, we must remind ourselves what Scripture tells us about eternal realities.

In daily doses, author Randy Alcorn offers insights on the Christian life along with Scriptures and inspirational quotes that can transform the way you think and live today.

It’s time to open your eyes—and see the unseen.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAKING YOUR DAYS COUNT FOR ETERNITY October 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book assemble's some of Alcorn's best writings related to living for that which will last for eternity. It contains sixty days worth of devotions or meditations including perspectives from God's Word and from God's people in each daily reading. At the end of each devotional there is also a link to Alcorn's blog where you can read more on the topic (in the Kindle version - you just click on the link and it takes you right there). Some of the topics addressed are as following: True Happiness; Homesick for Heaven; Grasping our need for Grace; Seeking God's will; True Repentance; A Theology of Laughter; God's Sovereignty; The Christian Optimist and God's Glory and our Good.

Each day hones in on two to three key Scriptures on the topic; two to three great quotes from people like Spurgeon, Chambers, Lewis, Piper, Ryle, Sproul, Tozer and Luther; and focuses on the hope and joy that we have in our promises from the God who holds the future in His hands for our good and His glory. Alcorn's insights from the Scriptures are clear, cogent, profound, and practical. This book makes a great gift for graduates, birthday's, anniversaries, the elderly, and any disciple of Christ who needs comfort and encouragement for the ups and downs of life. We all need to reminded of the hope that we have in Christ. I highly recommend this excellent compilation of Alcorn's finest thoughts on Heaven and living for eternity.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK. January 15, 2014
By G. Rosa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short and simple: EXCELLENT!
To be quite honest i downloaded the kindle version because it was being offered for free, not expecting much of this book.
For my surprise, I can honestly say it was one of the best books I have ever read.
This is a 60 day devotional, and I finished it in one day, simply couldn't stop.
Thank you Randy Alcom for this awesome book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A light yet filling meal for the soul! January 14, 2014
By ERIN
Format:Hardcover
I like this devotional, because the entries are brief and still meaty! You can easily read each one in just minutes, but the message you read sticks with you all day. There are two corresponding Bible passages and two non-Biblical perspectives on each topic. It's very readable, too. I would recommend buying at least two copies, because as I read it, I keep thinking of other people who would really benefit from receiving a copy (and I want to keep mine so I can read it over and over!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great devotional for the Kindle Fire or a tablet. November 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really loving this devotional. I don't think I would care for it as much in paperback, but with my kindle fire it is totally interactive with links to additional thoughts and information on each of the daily topics from the author's blog. Really good!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great devotional February 6, 2014
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The devotional is exactly what the title says..."Daily Dose". I use it in conjunction with my Bible read through because it capsulizes eternal truths that helps me meditate on what really lasts. If heaven is our real home, it makes sense that eternity is what we want our minds to be focused on. Highly recommend it.

By Lazarus
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a quality, short and to the point daily devotional. I do daily Bible readings and this is one of my devotionals.
If you've read Heaven, you'll like this. There are very few reliable, scriptural teachers anymore what with all the "new" movements in the church, but Randy is steadfast and true to God's Word, as always.
