Affabel – Window of Eternity Audio Drama

Affabel – An Allegory Found Within John Bevere’s Book “Driven By Eternity”

Welcome to “Driven by Eternity.” It’s an amazing book, because the Spirit of God’s all over it. It’s loaded with the eternal Word of God.

More than any book I’ve ever written, this book, “Driven by Eternity” has affected my life. The same thing’s going to happen with you.

Why is it important to talk of the eternal? I’ll tell you this right now. The Bible tells us that eternal judgments and rewards are an elementary doctrine of Jesus Christ. Think about what you got in elementary school, read, write, add and subtract. Can you imagine completing high school education not knowing how to read, write, add and subtract?

Christians are trying to build their lives, not understanding eternal rewards and judgments. How do we set this up? I even cried out, “God, how do I share this with people?” He said, “Tell a story.”

An 80 some page story came out, called “Affabel.” It is so important that you either read this, or listen to it. The book, “Driven by Eternity” is the longest book I’ve ever written. It took over 400 hours to write.

There is so much in this book that will personally transform your life, in a way like you’ve never experienced before.

Before I began to write “Driven by Eternity” I wrestled with this thought: How do I communicate the reality of what Scripture reveals about eternity to a generation who lives for the moment?

After several days of struggling in prayer, a thought came to me. I realized Jesus told stories to communicate spiritual truths to people. Thus the idea for the allegory of Affabel—a fictional story that offers a window to what lies beyond our earthly reality.

Most Christians know the way we respond to the cross determines where we will spend eternity—but far fewer understand that the way we align our lives with God’s purposes for us in this present life will determine how we will spend eternity. I wrote Affabel to portray this reality in a vivid way.

After writing this allegory, I gave a copy to my oldest son. He came downstairs the next morning and told me the story had shaken him so deeply he wasn’t able to sleep at all. When several others had similar experiences, I realized we had to do something bigger to communicate this story to as many as possible. We hired screenwriters, recruited nine Hollywood actors (including John Rhys-Davies who played Gimli in Lord of the Rings), booked studio time, and recorded the story as a dramatic audio theater. We even had one of Disney’s top composers do an original score for it. The production came together in such a powerful way that some who listened to it have given away hundreds and even thousands of copies.

My prayer is that Affabel will have the same impact in your life as it had in mine—that it will help you walk out God’s will for your life with clear intentionality. I will never view my limited time on this earth the way I did before, and after going through it, I doubt you will either. May we maximize every moment we have and passionately live out the calling God has placed on each of our lives. The world needs it. Our eternity depends on it.

John Bevere

“Driven by Eternity” is truly a rivetting and soul-searching book, that challenges Christians to live with Eternity in mind. Daniel and I are reading through it together, and I would highly recommend the book. The Audio Theatre story of Affabel is part of the book, and helps us understand eternity, rewards and punishments. The book, “Driven by Eternity” further explains what the Bible teaches, along with many of Bible references which support John’s teaching.

Your friend,

Listen to the Affabel Audio Theatre Production, which is available here in order, from YouTube in several parts. It is about 3 hours in length altogether, but so well worth listening to, even in stages. Let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart as you listen…
