Eternity In Their Hearts

My initial reaction to reading Eternity In Their Hearts by Don Richardson was one of praise. The first three chapters are about how God has prepared the hearts of the people of the world. He has kept an oral tradition of the beginning of the world through some of these tribes that parallel the first 11 chapters of Genesis and they all tell the same story. We once worshiped the true God, but somewhere along the line, we traded the true God for a false one, and we've always wanted to go back to worshiping the real God, but we don't know how to get out of the contract we made with the false one. After the first three chapters, Richardson talks about what the world believes and why we, as Christians, should be missionaries as Jesus taught. Those are good chapters too, but the stories of what God has done in these tribes described the first three chapters just made me stop reading and give praises to my king. I could go on and on, but this is enough for now. Find me around church and ask me if you want more information. I love this book.
