This is Eternal Life: An Interview with Seth Polk

Rev. Seth Polk, pastor of Cross Lanes Baptist Church and 4:12 Network Member has written an inspiring new book entitled This is Eternal Life. The book provides the reader with the inspiration and the tools to experience life in the fullness of God. We interviewed Seth about the book.

Question: Seth, could you tell us  the premise of the book?

Seth: Many people think of the Gospel only in terms of the moment a person places his/her faith in Jesus and is forgiven of their sins. This is essential of course, when we are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus who died and rose again. Once we have come to know Jesus and have become children of God, there is much more of life with God to know about, and to be experienced, now and into eternity.

Question: How did you become inspired to write on this particular subject?

Seth: I was inspired to write more indepth on the subject by Jesus' words in John 17:3 This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and the One You have sent- Jesus Christ. (HCSB) Eternal life is referenced in numerous places in the Bible, and I wanted to explore what it means to live life in the fullness of God.

Question:  Who could benefit from reading it?

Seth: I think the book would be helpful for new believers, and even those considering the faith, as it is written at a  foundational level, and in a Bible Study format, to be studied individually or in a small group setting. It would also be helpful for anyone who wants to examine their life with God, and to know Him more deeply. I wrote it from a personal perspective, and it was helpful for me to think through my own spiritual journey.

We encourage you to check out this valuable resource, and to find other inspiring resources on the 4:12 Network website.
