Clearly convicting, and intended to be so. What impressed me, though, is that even with Yohannan's personal commitment, he does not attempt to "play God" and dictate exactly how the reader should respond.

This book is a must read. It challenges us to reflect on our life and purpose as Christians. It will change the way you look at humanity and life.

Read at the convergence of several heart shaping influences thus very impactful. Living with an eternal perspective should change your internal perspective on the here and now, what you do with who you are and what you have. Challenging and encouraging!!!

Bought this book in my teens. Just finished reading it for the 3rd time. My life is so different now (as a parent) that there were lots of different take-a-ways from this book than in years past. His brief section on discouragement as a tool of our enemy has really helped me this week.

this book changed my life when I first came to know the Lord.

The book is more inspirational in nature than teaching, regarding dying to self and reaching the lost. There are lots of stories, but as usual the book could/should have been much shorter.

It is truly heart-stirring to read KP Yohannan talk about the importance of living truly and radically for the Lord with reference to world missions and the many billions of individuals who are headed to hell without Christ. In one sense, it is enjoyable to read because he stirs your heart to really feel and want to live more radically. In another sense, it is sobering, because he is right to call me mission-ward and live aware of eternity and the billions of people on the planet.

Living in the Light of Eternity challenges us to look beyond the temporary to the eternal; to look away from ourselves to the needs of others; and to look at our present circumstances in light of the bigger picture—the eternal picture. But it doesn’t aim to create a guilt trip about how we’re living compared to the rest of the world who needs Christ. Instead, it highlights a number of biblical principles that can serve as a foundation for coming to our own conclusions about what God is calling u ...more

A deeply challenging book by KP. Similar in some regards to KP's The Road to Reality but I found this one to be a little clearer and with stronger challenges to my lifestyle and commitment.

KP offers advice and suggestions as to how one can live in the light of eternity.

His inclusion of quotations from AW Tozer, Amy Carmichael and Stanley Jones are helpful and incisive.

A book to revisit, frequently.

As KP concludes, believers need to do something with the information and perspective presented as w

Living in the Light of Eternity is a stellar work in Christian evangelization. K.P. Yohannan has conveyed the importance of reaching the lost. He also gives examples and walks the walk.This book is an important tool for every Christian interested in world missions. Highly recommend. I received this book for free as part of Goodreads free giveaway program.

Thoughts Matter Too

Help me draw closer to You, Lord, for there are disbanding in the balance. It truly is a matter of life or death. Seek the kingdom of God. He loves you, and we owe Him so much.

Eternal Perspective

This is one of my favorite books by KP Yohannan. It is a challenge to look at our hearts to examine our motives; it is challenge to live our lives and make our decisions from what will make a difference eternally and not just the here and now.
