Driven by Eternity: Making Your Life Count Today and Forever
by Howard Glass
The first part of this book is in an allegorical style reminiscent of Bunyan's classic, Not being an Arminian, as Bevere's theology is, I began reading this book skeptically, but by the time I reached the middle of the book, it was speaking to me as I recognized some of my own weaknesses revealed in the characters. This work reminds the reader that the world would crowd our lives with unworthy things and corrupt our hearts with selfish motives. As we go about Kingdom business we need constant reminders about who we really are in God's plan. This book serves that end. Every Christian should read a book like this from time to time. Though the allegorical kingdom depicted is a little unreal, the characters are human and their behavior is plausible. The fictional accounts of Christian lives before and after death help us to imagine how we will appear in heaven's eyes. That message never gets stale. I commend Bevere for using some of his own experiences, times when God corrected him, to illustrate his points. We will be judged according to how we used our gifts and opportunities for Jesus rather than on our worldly success. That's something all believers need to grasp.
