This was THE book to read when I was in Christian high school. It was interesting at the time. Now, I probably would be very critical of this book. ( )

Summing up in one word--disappointing. I was recommended, and really enjoyed, Peace Child and Lords of the Earth by this author. I had thought that, of his other titles, this book would be most similar in style. It was not.

The author continues his attempts to prove his theory that God has left redemptive analogies in most, if not all, remote people groups. The idea being that sharing the Gospel is part using Scripture and part connecting it with the existing cultural ideas. In his previous books, I appreciated that the author made it clear that the analogies should be used to facilitate the Gospel and should in no way change or usurp it. This is an important point that must not be over-looked. I was amazed and fascinated by some of his stories and was looking forward to further examples in this book. I accept his theory in principle, although I'm not sure that there will be useful analogies in every cultural group. God alone knows that and maybe He has chosen different methods to engage with different groups. Maybe God was being gracious to the missionaries in opening their eyes to the potential inroads for the Gospel on these occasions.

However, a lot of the material is duplicated from the other books and there was not a lot of new information. This book is more of a general summary proving redemptive analogies with a short overview of each story. Unfortunately, the author uses a lot of words where one would be sufficient. It almost feels like he is trying to 'flesh-out' the book to make it a full length novel.

Instead of keeping his focus on contemporary mission and people groups, the author returns to the stories in the Bible. He seeks to apply his theory to a lot of the well-known stories. Whilst some of his observations are relevant, I felt that he took a bit too much licence with others. He is obviously passionate about his subject (hence the excessive use of exclamation points,) and therefore feels the need to prove it using anything and everything at his disposal. I realise that it was not his intention to modify the meaning of Scripture or to read things into passages that are just not there. But that is the effect in places.

I would give this book a miss. It could do with a good editing to improve the flow and to cut out a lot of the repetitive detail. I highly recommend the previously mentioned books by this author but this was disappointing. ( )

The author finds startling evidence of Belief in the One True God in hundreds of Cultures, and shows how Christian missions could use this pre-belief as a means of introducing their superior Christianity.

Traces the history of the relationship between God's "general revelation" and God's "special relation" -- the Melchizadech, and the Arahamic .

Eternity in Their Hearts is based off the premise that the traditional religions of many groups around the world have some of the groundwork for Christianity built in. This is a great book for learning how to do mission work as it should be done- finding an entry point and using that to introduce Christianity instead of making native religions out to be completely false.

Fascinating accounts of how God enabled the people of different pagan cultures to understand the meaning of the Gospel.

Tell us, Nicias, what advice has the Pythian oracle sent with you?
[Author's Postscript] Published in several languages since its first release in 1981, "Eternity in Their Hearts" is about to 'burst from a cocoon', so to speak, wearing a new, even more attractive, cover.
