In "Eternity Realized: A Guide to the Thoughtful," Philip guides the reader to the borders of Immanuel's land. Too often, Christians neglect the practise of being heavenly minded. Philip reminds us of our duty to meditate on heaven and the danger we place our soul in when we disregard this task. Yet, more than just pointing out a mere duty, Philip places key aspects of the Christian life in the light of eternity and gives practical helps in cultivating a delight in heavenly things. Read, ponder, and experience how developing the habit of realizing the eternal world to come will help you keep this world in its proper place.
