From Eternity to here

Recently, there have been a couple of books that have just made my jaw drop as I read the first couple of chapters.

The most recent was "From Eternity To Here" by Frank Viola subtitled "Rediscovering the ageless purpose of God".

Why did my jaw drop?  Because it struck such a chord.   In an interview about the book the author talks that, while we have Genesis 1 & 2 in the Bible, we usually start our faith at Genesis 3 with the fall (and often end prior to Revelation 21).  

The book is divided into 3 sections and I am still in the first section, explaining the love story, the romance of God with his church.  I'll have to keep you posted as I read.
