Jesus taught us to pray, “Our Father in Heaven…may your Kingdom come, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven….” Simply put, author David McDonald’s Heirs of Eden: Creating the World we want with God’s Help and for God’s Glory provides the practical handles by which we can collaborate with God in fulfilling that magnificent vision. The way to Eden is not back (to some long-lost, idyllic past), it is forward into the glorious future to which the Spirit of the Risen Christ impels his New Creation. An exemplary book by a master communicator – a must read.

I have sat under David McDonald’s teaching for over 15 years. David always offers fresh, creative, and lively theological and practical insights from Scripture. His new book, Heirs of Eden, is challenging, inspiring, and instructive. David’s book offers hope for the world, the Church, and the possibility of living a life of joyful obedience to the God of love and mercy. I recommend it highly especially for pastors who have lost the excitement of partnering with God to heal the world.

David offers a direct approach that will unlock traditional thinking and help you see God’s original intention for us. He presents his argument argument in a theological, philosophical, historical, and sociological frame, with his typical wit and self-reflection. This book is rousing for those who follow Christ, but equally inspiring and informative to those who do not identify with the Christian faith. A marvelous book for group discussion in today’s world saturated by social movements and human identities.

Description

You feel like there’s a God-given dream in your heart, but you can’t figure out how it fits into your life as a Christian.

You’re tired of feeling like you have to stay in the box, follow a certain path, or fit the status quo to serve God.

You want more…out of life, out of faith, and for this world. How can you integrate all of who you are with God’s plan for the world? 

Heirs of Eden is a book about your dreams, your work, and your creative potential that will wake you up to what lights you up inside and show you why your dreams are holy.

Through artistic reflections on God’s plan of restoration for the world, you will understand the true purpose of humanity, the theology of creativity, and why it’s not just about going into ministry or “being used by God” – it’s about manifesting the Spirt of God within you simply by being you. 

Whether you’re a woodworker, a stay-at-home mom, a mechanic, or an investment banker and whether your passion is your profession or your hobby, you will discover how you are meant to participate in the divine creative life by existing, working, dreaming, doing, and bringing flourishing to those around you. 

This book will ignite the fire in your belly, the light in your eyes, and the dreams in your soul as you see how your work, faith, and art blend together to bring the Kingdom of God to earth.
