A timely and refreshing look at an oft neglected, misunderstood, but central doctrine of the BibleThe Kingdom of God will inspire, inform, and edify pastors, students, laymen, and scholars alike. This work charts a course between the Scylla of an over-spiritualized conception of the kingdom and the Charybdis of an over-realized understanding of the kingdom of God. It does so by following the contours of the Bible in its arrival at a relevant biblical understanding of the kingdom consistent with the best of the evangelical tradition. A must-have in the library of every serious student of the Bible!
Associate Professor of Missions, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
The essays within provide a fresh and helpful assessment of the multifaceted meaning of the kingdom of Godfrom the Old Testament and the ancient covenants, to the New Testament and todays Christians, and on to the consummation. For those in my generation captured by George Ladds already/not yet understanding of Gods kingdom, this work is a noteworthy twenty-first-century expansion of how complex and important the kingdom theme is both for orthodoxy and for orthopraxy.
Professor of Biblical Studies, Union University; author, The Illustrated Guide to Biblical History
In this elegant volume, seven distinguished theologians wrestle with the big questions surrounding the biblical notion of kingdomultimately forging a path for the church where there is no inherent conflict between kingdom preaching and kingdom living, between orthodoxy and orthopraxy. As ambassadors of the king, Gods people proclaim the kingdom and embody Gods rule in every dimension of society and culture, and across the fabric of human life.
Dean and Associate Professor of Theology and Culture, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary; editor, Theology and Practice of Mission
At a time when scholars continue to wrangle over various interpretations of the kingdom and pastors seek to find clear, concrete ways to express kingdom living to their congregations, we have in this volume a foundational work that will assist scholars and pastors alike for years to come. Its all herethe history of the debate, biblical theology, systematic theology, and very practical application. As I finished reading this book, I knew that my understanding of the kingdom was forever enlarged; perhaps more significantly, I knew that my heart would never again be satisfied with anything less than kingdom life.
Associate Professor of Historical and Practical Theology, Covenant Seminary
Chris Morgan and Robert Peterson have done a masterful job of searching out a comprehensive construct of the concept of the kingdom of God. Through world-class scholars, they have presented, as promised, the historical, biblical, theological, and ethical precepts of the kingdom. What a gift of understanding they have given to the body of Christ.
