Seeing the Unseen, Expanded Edition

A 90-Day Devotional to Set Your Mind on Eternity

Randy Alcorn

About Seeing the Unseen, Expanded Edition

Let the Hope of Eternity
Shape Your Life Today

Scripture tells us to fix our eyes on the unseen. Rather than focus on what will fade, we’re encouraged to lock our gaze on things of eternal value. But how exactly can we do that amid the immediate demands of life?
 
In this expanded edition of his devotional Seeing the Unseen, Randy Alcorn provides 90 inspirational readings that will help you view today through the lens of the eternal.
 

As we better grasp the realities of the spiritual realm, we gain a clearer perspective on our present life, including things like suffering, happiness, generosity, and peace. This transformative devotional equips you to live with a right view of eternity—one that will shape not just what you believe, but how you navigate the challenges and opportunities of each day.

Best-Selling Author Randy Alcorn Equips Readers to Live with an Eternal Perspective
 
For over fifty years, my wheelchair has helped me focus on eternal things, rather than the passing things of this earth. But how do you set your mind on heavenly realities? How can we live, knowing that everything we do on earth has a direct bearing on our eternal estate? My friend Randy Alcorn answers these questions on every page of his wonderful new book, Seeing the Unseen. I highly recommend this ninety-day devotional to all Christians who want to enrich their joy in Heaven!”—Joni Eareckson Tada, founder of Joni and Friends International Disability Center

To say that Randy Alcorn is excited for eternity is the understatement of the year. Multimillion-selling author and founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries, Alcorn is introducing his expanded edition of Seeing the Unseen (Multnomah, Oct. 17, 2017) to share the call that believers have on their lives to be “ALIVE (Always Living In View of Eternity).”
 
Seeing the Unseen now features an additional 30 daily devotions filled with Godly, perspective-transforming insight on this lifetime and the next. Alcorn’s devotions are centered on his belief that when we shift our focus from the seen to the unseen—God and eternity with him—our lives on this earth can make a profound difference.
 
The devotions explore a number of deep yet practical ways that readers can make this shift and see beyond the temporary. Suffering and mortality, for example, gain brand new meaning when viewed in light of God’s promise of a Heaven void of sorrow, pain and death.
 
Each devotion is complemented with perspectives from God’s Word and perspectives from God’s people—quotes from the likes of C.S. Lewis, Augustine, Charles Spurgeon, Oswald Chambers and more.
 
Readers will find that Alcorn’s hope and excitement for Heaven are contagious. Seeing the Unseen is a much-needed reminder that although our days on this earth may be numbered, this life is only the beginning of a life that will continue without end.

This book does something that I think is essential for anyone who desires to truly live a Christian life: see how every action they take during the mundane course of their daily lives is inextricably linked to eternity, and then act accordingly. It is easy to become ungrateful for and bored with our own lives - the place we have in our country, world, or universe - instead of being thankful for what we have, we set our sights upon coveting...
