  • Balanced teaching on heaven and hell, good and evil, and the effect our lives have on both realms
  • Insights to help readers access God’s purpose and plan so they can live truly meaningful lives

Would you risk your reputation to find out what is pleasing to God?
The greatest thing that can ever be said about a person is that he or she pleased God. But while pleasing God makes you popular in heaven, it may not make you popular on earth. Do you have the temptation to be well received here on earth? Do you make spiritual decisions based upon what people will think of you?
Going a step further, have you considered whether you have any reputation in hell? Are you living the kind of life that causes a threat to Satan’s interests? That’s how you become famous in hell.

It’s time to stop valuing your reputation with people more than your reputation with God. Start living your life with eternity in mind. Respected theologian and author R. T. Kendall has written this book to help you discover the keys to living a life that truly pleases God, making you not only popular in heaven, but also famous in hell.

My thoughts:

This book basically speaks to something many people struggle with. Pleasing people.

If we try to please people here on earth we often aren’t pleasing God. He should be our main focus, all we care about. But when we try to make the world around us happy or fit in we might not be very well liked, not the most popular kid in school (or in your community, workplace, etc.).

The author gives some great Biblical examples of people who didn’t care about being popular on earth but they are popular in Heaven. This should be our goal as well.

If this sounds interesting to you then give this book a read.
