Wow! Eternity in their Hearts by Don Richardson will blow you away!
"This book reveals startling evidence of belief in the One True God in cultures around the world!" says the cover. And it does! It's amazing!
I get so excited when I read this book! I stand amazed at the Holy God who is so filled with love and compassion that He would prepare so many different cultures to recognize and receive the Gospel. God truly wants all men everywhere to hear and respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Isn't Our Heavenly Father wonderful?!
Don Richardson, the author of Peace Child, another amazing book, shares true stories from different places around the the world. In each case, you see God preparing a people to respond to Jesus when the Gospel arrives.
This book is a history of pagan cultures who still have the seed of faith in the One True God. Why is this? Because at the beginning of time, Adam and Eve walked with God in an intimate relationship while they lived in the Garden of Eden. Though they sinned, rejecting life with God, there was still a knowledge that was passed down of the One True God who created the earth and everyone who lives in it. That true knowledge, though marred in time, still exists. And we serve a God who searches for the lost, longing to bring them home to love and know Jesus Christ.
This book is a faith booster. It is also a glimpse into the heart of God for all people everywhere. It has been a great encouragement to me and everyone else in my family.
When my children learn about the Great Commission, I have them read this book. It reminds us that God longs for people to repent and serve Him more than we do.
We have also read this book when we study Ancient History because of how far back the truth of the One True God goes. Another subject it makes a great supplement to is geography.
Teens, preteens, and adults will all enjoy this book. It is a great addition to any homeschool library.
God bless you as you read, read, read. And may the Lord equip you to fulfill the Great Commission.
For His Glory,
