Note from Randy

Wait Until Then emphasizes, in story fashion, that according to God’s Word, the best is yet to be. We who love Jesus do not pass our peak in this life, nor do we reach it. Our peak, or its beginning, will come in the resurrection, not before. (Revelation 21-22) This life may be overshadowed by lost opportunities, but the life to come will restore so many of them and bring countless new and better ones. The New Earth will forever offer us opportunities to serve our Lord, behold God’s beauty in His restored creation, and go places and do things we rarely or never had a chance to do in this present world under the curse. So the best we enjoy here—great food and relationships and art and music and most of culture, including sports, I think—is a foretaste of what awaits us on the New Earth, when we’ll be without sin and death, and live with God Himself, beholding the Headwaters of Joy, and the Source of all the lesser streams of pleasure, at His right hand forever, as Psalm 16:11 says. (On the book’s final page, I present for parents and grandparents the biblical basis for this, so they can explain it to their children.)

The realistic pictures in Wait Until Then, done by Doran Ben Ami, are stunning. And the final picture of the book—don’t peek when you get the book; it’ll only take you ten minutes to get there from page one—will really move you and capture your imagination.
