Andrew Farely is my favorite spiritual leader and pastor. I realize that writing a review, it can appear very bias but I just love how he tackles controversial issues. In this new book, he talks about awakening to your spiritual senses such as awakening to Grace,knowing your identity in Christ, the riches in Jesus and things like that. I liked how this book was so encouraging, at the end of every page, it had a prayer and always repeated how much Jesus loves us. It is amazing how he can be vulne ...more
I enjoy all of Andrew Farley's books whether they will one day when we are all dead, be proven to be right or not ( sorry for the bluntness ! ). He is a massive believer that constant and never ending striving 'to be good', repetance, never feeling good enough, right enough or Christian enough is all wrong and once Chrisst died on the cross for us, he paid the price for all our sins for always, which you will not hear in many places. If you don't go to a fire and brimstone sort of church, and go ...more
While some people might be hesitant to believe in the idea of heaven on Earth, pastor and professor Farley develops an interesting theory. Because there is nothing separating us from speaking to God this very moment, we do have access to heaven here on Earth. While we cannot ignore the pain and sin still here, we nevertheless can feel, hear, see, smell, and taste the sweetness and splendor of heaven here and now through prayer, meditation, Scripture reading, witnessing, and singing.

While I loved what he says about the victory that is found in Christ, I really can't get behind the idea that some of what Jesus taught has no relevance to us because the new covenant had somehow not been established. This thinking leads to dangerous assumptions about how we read the old and new testaments and how we are to apply scripture to our daily living. Loved the book in so many ways but really couldn't get past this one roadblock

I want everyone I know to own and read this book. It's packed with scriptural truth, but it's a beautiful reflection of God's heart toward us to know Him. You've gotta get this book and read it over and over until these truths find a home in your heart and you begin to experience heaven in the now!
Will have to read this book again slowly. This was an interesting read that challenged my long held beliefs of what various scripture passages mean. I found myself reaching for my Bible often. If you have grown to believe you need to perform better for God to more fully love you, this book will challenge that thinking.
This is a good book for a daily read, deeper than a devotional and new way to look at our daily walk with Christ. It is about how we reign with Christ right now in this life and how we need to change how we think to do it. Great read and a book to keep to re-read.
