In this book primarily Scotty Smith, with some writing from Steven Curtis Chapman paints the picture of how God will make all things new when Christ returns. He includes with this picture a call for Christians to be working now to be renewing all things. The worldview theology in this book is solid, but no more in depth than other worldview books.

This is a very good book, written primarily by Scotty Smith, about Revelation 21-22 and how God is, and will be, making all things new. It is about living today with more of a focus on Redemptive History and God's story of Creation, Fall, Redemption and Consummation; and how living with a focus on this should change our lives and priorities.

I like my devotional books to have a little more Scriptural meat in them, and a little less fluff. I could have done without the incessant stories about orphans and the fly-fisherman analogies, but the basic ideas of the book were encouraging and good. I had to wade through a bunch of personal stories that I have no interest in. The only story I'm interested in is Christ's story.

i started this a few months ago and shelved it. hopefully will get to it on vacation. finally finished it a couple of days ago. let me just say...the 2 or 3 chapters on worship are some of the best i have ever read.
