What is Not Home Yet?

Not Home Yet: How to be human in an inhuman world is a book-in-progress being written by Liv and Brandon Booth, founders of Signpost Inn Ministries.

Lost? You can always find everything in order on the Table of Contents.

What is the book about?

Life is hard. We all suffer. We all hurt. We are all tired. Above all, we’re all lonely. We live in a world that doesn’t feel like a home for humans.

In the words of the Apostle Peter, we are all “exiles dispersed abroad.” And yet, we are also, “chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to be obedient and to be sprinkled with the blood of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:1).

So we are wanderers but not lost. Exiles, but not without a promised land. Lost children, but not orphans. We are homeless, but not truly without a home, we’re just not home yet.

But what about in the meantime? How do humans live in an inhuman world? 

Well, that’s what this book is about. It’s about finding—and creating—oases. It’s about connecting with God and finding direction.
