From the Inside Flap

What if heaven wasn't just meant to be experienced after we die? What if heaven can be enjoyed here on earth--right now?

In this life-changing book, bestselling author Andrew Farley reveals how you can take in the beauty of heaven no matter what your circumstances.

He shows you how to awaken your five spiritual senses in order to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel the grace of heaven, even in the midst of trouble here on earth.

The heaven we can experience in this life lies within us, far beyond the reach of the world--but well within our grasp.|Andrew Farley is a bestselling author and pastor of Church Without Religion (ChurchWithoutReligion.com). He serves as a faculty adviser for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and frequently speaks at churches and university groups around the United States and in Canada.

From the Back Cover

"What a promise: there is another world, and it can start now, in this one. Read Heaven Is Now to discover hidden everyday reflections that can awaken your 'five spiritual senses' so that you can begin eternity now. This book is heaven-sent."--Leonard Sweet, bestselling author, professor, and chief contributor to Sermons.com

"If you've ever wondered what Jesus might say specifically to you, this is your book and you're going to love it! Andrew Farley presents the magnificent truth of the gospel in the form of a conversation--as though Jesus were talking directly to you, and you to Jesus. Your heart will open wide to your Savior as you marvel at his love for you. And there's nothing more life-changing than that!"--Ralph Harris, author of God's Astounding Opinion of You

"Andrew Farley has a unique and special understanding of grace. In Heaven Is Now, he articulates the depths of God's grace in a way that every believer can understand. This is the official grace handbook for Christians everywhere!"--Darin Hufford, bestselling author of The Misunderstood God

"Here is a gentleness that captures not only the content of Jesus's message but his loving heart and warmth as well. Within this invitation to experience heaven in the here and now, Farley offers the encouragement of a Good News that's much better than what Christians are usually taught. God's tenderness leaps from every page."--David Gregory, bestselling author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger

First it was "The Naked Gospel." Then came "God Without Religion." Now, one of the most refreshing Christian voices of our generation offers a third installment in his quest to help us understand and enjoy the matchless grace of God more powerfully than we ever have! If you think you understand the love of God, put that assumption to the test today and read "Heaven is Now." Don't be fooled by the title. This isn't some whacky tale of one man's opinion about the afterlife. This is a deeply Scriptural, extremely practical and immensely enjoyable book that you'll return to over and over again for fresh reminders of God's invitation to enjoy Him NOW!

Andrew has a gift for taking the most profound theological truths of Scripture, placing them on the lower shelf without dumbing them down, and helping us to exchange our less-Biblical notions of God for the truth! Why wait until Heaven to begin really enjoying Jesus when daily glimpses and tastes of eternity are available every day? Whether you are burnt out on the so-called "spiritual disciplines", struggling with conflicting impressions of God, or wondering whether you'll really ever be able to finally rest in His irreversible love and forgiveness, this book will help you experience God's goodness more richly for yourself - and communicate it to others more clearly. Thank you Andrew Farley for being obedient to clear away the clutter and teach the truth! I've been a pastor for 16 years, a Christian for 23 years, and I've seldom experienced an author whose words God has used to impact my life so deeply!

Here's a book that has been needed for many years. I wish I had written it! I cannot adequately describe what Farley has done to assist people toward the fulfilling relationship they deeply long for with God. Reading this book will help you fathom the security and greatness of God's love for you, and it will assist you to walk with Him in a much more satisfying way because of it. Isn't that what you want most?

If you do, then Farley will help you find that through the pages of this book. For many people "Heaven Is Now" will change their day-to-day life in the way that springtime breaks the grip of a dark winter season. It will be quite an awakening!

I absolutely loved the simplicity of this book. Andrew took spiritual life changing truths and explained them in a way that anyone can understand the new life we have in Christ. Heaven really is for now! Andrew took the most important things about the NEW Covenant and shared them with real life examples. If you want to know what it means to live by Grace and to be free from the law, yet in love with Jesus and living from HIS life, you must read this book.

In Heaven is Now, Andrew Farley has refined and clarified his teaching on the distinction between the Law that condemns sinners and the forgiveness of Jesus Christ that saves and sets free from sin forever. The first half of the book adeptly leads readers through Scripture to explain the finished work of Jesus on the cross and how it applies to us. The later half of the book focuses more on living into the Christ life. This is much the same message as Mr. Farley's previous book; here, I think it is better articulated and includes a more devotional application. Although the book has plenty of positives, the unorthodox Biblical readings of Jesus' and John's teachings prevent me from recommending it for individual or group use.

Farley does an excellent job showing how Jesus' work forgives all of our sins and wipes them away forever--never to be seen by God again. He leads readers through Scriptures to show that we are new people "in Christ," and that, as Christians, we are never out of Christ. This will prevent the misunderstandings that Christians may have about being able to fall out of God's grace or lose salvation. Short, helpful anecdotes illustrate these points in each chapter. On these topics, I think Mr. Farley may minimize the damage that sin in our lives does to our relationship with God in the present reality of our lives. Any devoted Christian knows that sin becomes a stumbling block and obstacle to experiencing present communion with the Lord. Farley does state the need to stop sinning and remember who we are in Christ.

Mr. Farley makes clear that the Law is used by God to point people to Jesus.

Andrew Farley's book, "Heaven is Now" is another must read. Having read and loved "The Naked Gospel" and " God Without Religion," this book does not disappoint. Farley uses personal stories and conversations to draw analogies to incredible truths soundly supported in scripture. No author does this better--I so appreciate Farley's incredible gift of clearly and concisely communicating truth. He has a gift of drawing us from our modern circumstances, showing us the incredible love and grace in the scriptures, and then enabling us to transcend the situation we might be struggling with by applying truth that sets us free. Farley cleverly and appropriately divides his book into our 5 spiritual senses ( feel, hear, see, smell, and taste) and states that we "already possess the senses we need to take in heaven's goodness (Heb. 5:14). We need only have these senses awakened.". And that is exactly what this author does. I have been reading this book aloud to my daughters, age 17 and 12, each night before bed. At the end of each chapter, there is a beautiful message written as if directly from God, Himself, to the reader, and then is followed by a short prayerful response from the reader. The girls and I have had many sweet, before bed conversations as our minds are renewed through our awakened spiritual senses that in the midst of the craziness in our lives on this earth, we can really experience the love, grace, mercy and everlasting stability of Heaven--Right now!
