Publisher's Description

An intriguing, informed look at salvation and the kingdom of God
What is the kingdom of God? Where is it? How should the church celebrate the coming of the kingdom? In this popularly written study Ben Witherington addresses these and various other questions about the ever-elusive kingdom of God. Clearly defining the kingdom in terms of God’s dominion, Witherington discusses both its present ("already") and its future ("not yet") dimensions, and he brings out at length the implications of kingdom thinking for theology, ethics, and worship. End-of-chapter questions for reflection and discussion make the book ideal for church classes and study groups.

Publisher Description

What and where is the Kingdom of God, and how should the Church celebrate Kingdomtide, the most neglected of church seasons? In this brief study Ben Witherington addresses these and various other questions about the ever-elusive Kingdom of God.

Discussing both its present and future dimensions, Witherington brings out at length the implications of kingdom thinking for both theology and ethics, both praxis and worship. Focusing on the already and not yet character of the Kingdom, he stresses that God’s saving reign — and thus salvation — is also an already and not yet matter. Future salvation is not a foregone conclusion simply because one has experienced initial salvation. This explains the many warnings Jesus, Paul, and others give to believers about failing to enter, obtain, or inherit the Kingdom.

Filled with practical wisdom and advice on how to celebrate the season of Kingdomtide, this little book fills a void in the literature on this subject.
