Heaven on Earth
Realizing the Good Life Now
by Chris Seidman and Joshua Graves
"...one of the most inspiring, challenging, and prophetic explorations of the Beatitudes I’ve ever read."
—Ian Morgan Cron, author of Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me and Chasing Francis
Read how Jesus invites us to the true "good life" through the Beatitudes.
Chris Seidman and Joshua Graves
The kingdom of heaven is closer than we think and more accessible than we realize. It's where we belong, and it's time to go home.
Read why Ian Morgan Cron and others are inspired and challenged by this call to create your best life now.
In this exclusive Patheos interview, Josh Graves talks about what can happen when we shift our location for Heaven to the here and now.

"No matter how lost you get, the Beatitudes are an invitation to the way home, back to the heart of the Father." Watch the Patheos Skype interview with author Josh Graves.

We are blessed, but just don’t realize it. In fact our failure to claim our place in a dynamic ecology of blessing is one of the sources of anxiety, polarization, impatience, and greed.
Karen Spears Zaccharias
Heaven on Earth isn’t a travel guide for the dying, it’s a handbook for the living. Besides any book on heaven that quotes from The Shawshank Redemption earns major props from me.
That Seidman and Graves both live in the trenches of a local church should give heart to the reader that this stuff genuinely flies wrapped in the skin of real, flawed, sinful people who have racked up more minuses than plusses.
This book is a great introduction to a very deep, grand, and high subject.
Catholic readers may find the practical, down to earth and relevant approach of these Protestant pastors a bit of fresh air-a new perspective and a welcome new voice to their usual reading.
