Bestselling Christian author Bevere (Under Cover; The Fear of the Lord) turns his heart and pen to eternity. So many people, he says, live without heaven on their minds, yet eternity is planted in their hearts. His goal is to open readers' eyes to what awaits them: whether the end result will be horrible suffering or great joy, all will face God's judgment. Bevere uses the allegorical story of King Jalyn, his kingdom of Affabel, and the capital city of Endel and its inhabitants to help readers understand how life choices affect their eternal future. At first blush the allegory seems contrived, but Bevere adds depth to characters such as Double Life, Deceived and Charity. He is certain to offend some conservative evangelicals with his talk of visions and dreams, and his opinion that Christians can sometimes lose their salvation. Readers can't argue, however, with his knowledge of the Bible. Bevere urges Christians to get to work for God and asks tough questions about why some are not doing so. He doesn't sugarcoat his belief that heaven is imminent and that many people, Christian and not, are wasting their lives on useless pursuits and priorities. This book will linger long in the consciences and hearts of readers. (Apr. 10)
