    1. Mark Buchanon is a beautiful wordsmith; his words are art and his stories are so wonderfully told.I absolutely adored the overall message of this novel. There were some parts that will never leave me and I believe I was meant to read this at this exact time in my life. The ending was so peaceful and I might say that it was easily, the most beautiful conclusion to any novel that I have ever read.I only gave this book 4 stars though, narrowly escaping 5 stars, because I just found that at certain [...]

    2. Buchanan is a wonderful wordsmith and his colourful and image-rich prose makes for good reading, but in terms of content, "Things Unseen" is lacking. Granted, "devotional" books aren't usually my cup of tea. I enjoy reading academic theology and then working out the "devotional" side of things on my own. That said, I don't think it's just my perception that something's missing here. For a book on "heaven" Buchanan seems to muddle the intermediate state with the New Jerusalem and the "present hea [...]

    3. On Sunday, I go to my pastor's library and pick out a book to read for the week. This week I picked this one. At first I thought, "Nah. I'll tuck this away and wait until next Sunday to get another one." Then I read only 5 pages further and decided it really was a pretty good book. The thing I liked best about this book is how well it is written. Buchanan really has a flair for language. You feel his writing with every stroke of his pen. He's got passion and it is transparent. I've never had any [...]

    4. With beautiful language and visually inspiring analogies, Mark Buchanan shows us how God has put "eternity in our hearts," which is why nothing here in this life or on this earth will ever truly satisfy us. He relates his experiences of enjoying great beauty, joy, and wonder, and yet still having that nagging sense of "is this all there is?" Not as theologically heavy as Randy Alcorn's "Heaven," (which I highly recommend), this answers the question of our discontent even in the face of having ou [...]

    5. A long reflection on two of my all time favorite passages: "He has set eternity in the hearts of men, yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)"Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things, for you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you will appear wi [...]

    6. Buchanan is good with words and I found the first chapter or two gripping, but I didn't see a lot of depth beyond the one basic point. Also, he talks about heaven throughout, which I though was a little confusing vis a vis the kingdom of God.

    7. His second work, Mark Buchanan's poetic and moving writing style compliments his passion for understanding how a view of eternity can transform the way we live now. We really do live in a world of faith not sight.

    8. The best book I've read on the subject of eternity and its impact on our daily life. This is a writer of great sensitivity. His poetic prose is a joy to read on any subject, and I recommend him unreservedly. This happens to be my favorite of his books.

    9. Appreciated the encouragement and inspiration to think on things unseen. My first Mark Buchanan book and it is a good read. Eternity starts with knowing Jesus. This reading gave my faith a shot of reality. It will be in The Hills' library.

    10. the best book about heaven i've ever read. it is good, goose-bumpy good at some points. not every chapter is a home run, but as a whole it deserves to be savoured over time and returned to often so that all our values and grand perspective of life can be soaked in this wisdom.

    11. Always interested in reading about heaven and the title of this book is especially catchy. The key take away for me is to always focus on what really matters which is not anything found on this earth. I enjoyed reading this book very much.

    12. One of the most uplifting books. It makes sense when life does not. I have given copies to those who lost loved ones, especially those sudden and unexpected losses.

    13. Really enjoyed this book. Mark Buchanan helps explain our continual feeling of unrest and dissatisfaction. His personal stories and experiences add great insight and give it a touch of familiarity.

    14. Deeply touching and timely as I grieve for Isaac. I cried all the way through but it was very good for me and reassuring about Heaven.

    15. Stirred up a longing for eternity but an excitement for what God has for us here, if only we would open our eyes to see.
