"Both Bob and Jack believe a viable and balanced understanding of the Church will come only when there is a workable understanding of the Kingdom of God. Bob and Jack strongly believe that most of the glaring deficiencies and lamentable weaknesses of the Western Church exist because of a loss of Kingdom mentality among believers everywhere. The Church's authentic identity, central message, total mission and, especially its authority and power to change the culture in which it has been planted are all derived from its relationship to the Kingdom. Not until the Gospel of the Kingdom is clarified, believed and widely declared will the Church understand and fulfill her role in God's redemptive plan." -from the Introduction
George Dana Boardman was born in Burma in 1828. His parents were missionaries associated with Adoniram Judson. Boardman's father died when George was three years old. His widowed mother later married Judson; and Boardman became Adoniram Judson's step-son. Boardman returned to the United States for his education and pastored the First Baptist Church in Philadelphia for 30 years just prior to the turn of the twentieth century. He also presided over the American Baptist Missionary Union and Christian Arbitration and Peace Society.
