Full Product Description

  • Do you have questions about what happens when we die?
  • John Ortberg explores how eternal life doesn't really start with death
  • You'll learn a new, critical way of viewing salvation

Jesus never said heaven was a pearly gate up in space.

Jesus never said that the point of life was keeping your nose clean until you shuffle off the face of the earth.

Faith is not a waiting game. Eternity is not the goal. The most important moment of your faith starts right now.

The all-new book from writer, speaker, preacher John Ortberg, Eternity is Now in Session examines the very human ideas of what salvation is, and what we need to do in order to really understand it. Eternity starts at the very same moment of salvation - down to the very second. Everything in Eternity is Now in Session is here to help you rethink salvation.

Taking his cue from John 17:3 - “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” - John Ortberg shows that ways in which knowing God, being acquainted with Christ, by deeply understanding His Spirit are what is designed when eternal life is mentioned in the Bible.

Whether you aren’t sure if you’ve done faith right, or feel like many interpretations of Christianity miss the mark in some way, Eternity is Now in Session offers you a refreshing approach to salvation.

Publisher's Description

Something in us is waiting - for what, we don't know. Something different? Something better?

For Christians, perhaps the deepest expression of what we're waiting for is found in the phrase 'eternal life'. But what is eternal life? Why do we want it? And how do we know if we have it?

In Eternity Is Now in Session, bestselling author John Ortberg dispels the myth that eternal life is something way out in outer space that we can only hope to experience after we die - and that being saved is merely about meeting the minimal entrance requirements for getting into heaven. Instead, John unpacks the reality that the moment we trust Christ, we are initiated into 'eternal living' with God as a here and now reality, one that will continue beyond our life on this earth.

Jesus defined eternal life just once, in John 17:3: " ... that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." The kind of 'knowing God' that is eternal life is an interactive relationship, not just an affirmation of certain facts about God. Once we begin the transformative journey of truly knowing God, we can start to experience his presence, favour, and resurrection power right here on this earth - in the details, tasks, and challenges of daily, ordinary life.

And as we begin to know God this way, we'll realise each moment of our lives is a vehicle to the eternity we've been longing for all along.
