Heaven in Your Eye, Earth on Your HeartBy: Steve Donald
Looking at heaven through the eyes of the Puritans Boston, Baxter and Bunyan. Heaven in your eye and earth on your heart is basic to Puritan thought. It is the notion of heaven energizing life on earth, whilst we journey to the celestial city through God's grace. Boston, Baxter and Bunyan were typical of the Puritans who were shepherds and soldier-pilgrims, energized on earth by their passion for heaven. They lived in times of angst like ours and faced critical questions about the Church, as we also do. Steve Donald takes the reader on a voyage of rediscovery, looking at heaven through the eyes of Boston, Baxter and Bunyan. His aim: to energize our lives with the vision of heaven that inspired these men in their earthly ministry. Here is a call to individual Christians to maintain their concern for holy living and to pastors and church leaders to stand up and be counted.
