"I don’t want to go to heaven. Not that I’m lobbying for the other place...." (Michael Wittmer)
This planet is more than just a stopover on your way to heaven. It is your final destination. God wants you to enjoy your earthly existence, and to think otherwise is to miss the life he intends for you.
Exploring the book of Genesis, Heaven Is a Place on Earth gently but firmly strips away common misconceptions of Christianity and broadens your worldview to reveal the tremendous dignity and value of everyday life. Taking you from creation, to the fall, to redemption, and to glimpses from the book of Revelation, Michael Wittmer opens your eyes to a faith that encompasses all of life - baseball games, stock reports, church activities, prayer, lovemaking, work, hobbies... everything that lies within the sphere of human activity. To be fully Christian is to be fully human, says Wittmer, alive and responsive to the kingdom of God in all that you are and all that you do.
Discover the freedom and impact God created you for. It starts with a truly Christian worldview. And its fruit is the undiluted gospel, powerful not only to save souls, but to restore them to a life that is truly worth living.
Includes discussion/reflection questions after each chapter.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
I have an Evangelical-ish background and can recommend this for them, especially, as the author is clearly comfortable with them/us, hoping also to challenge and stretch.
My own taste prefers, especially when authors are not narrating, a less regional voice; think Brian Jennings or Diane Sawyer. For me, such voices would make listening less rigorous.

This book is simply profound. Dr. Wittmer allows the Bible to speak for itself to reveal our eternal hope in fellowship with Emanuel on the renewed earth. God will have what he intended in the beginning, this time without the possibility of anything ever going wrong. What a day of rejoicing that will be!!
Would you try another book from Michael E. Wittmer and/or Maurice England?
Not at this point. Performance is very monotone; therefore, I do not focus on what is being said.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Probably go back to John Bevere or Craig Johnson mystery.
How could the performance have been better?
Use of different tones in reading.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I have not found any yet.
Any additional comments?
The author seems to be somewhat sarcastic which I think is inappropriate.
