Product Description

The kingdom of God is a very large biblical category indeed. Accordingly, a comprehensive understanding of the kingdom would illuminate many aspects of theology. With this in mind The Kingdom of God, a collaborative effort of 7 leading Christian scholars, articulates a full view of the Kingdom across multiple academic disciplines.

One of the most important books on the Kingdom since G. E. Ladd, this volume offers a robust theology and is corroborated by the very series in which it stands. Fourth book in the noted Theology in Community series, The Kingdom of God establishes the significance of this doctrine from the perspectives of biblical theology, systematic theology, history, pastoral application, missiology, and cultural analysis.

Endorsements

Jesus taught plainly and often about the kingdom—but explaining the full meaning of his words has occupied theologians for centuries. This volume captures the biblical perspective—not just Jesus’ words but the full scope of Scriptural insight—in a comprehensive, readable, and thorough fashion. God will use it to reveal insight about his kingdom and change your perspective on kingdom living.
-Jeff Iorg,
President, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary

Morgan and Peterson have put together a collection that brings clarity and precision to an often blurry discussion. Like the other volumes in the Theology in Community series, it is biblically informed, theologically incisive, and pastorally sensitive. Those looking for a guide to understanding the significance of the kingdom—past, present, and future—will do well to consult The Kingdom of God.
-Stephen T. Um,
Senior Minister, Citylife Presbyterian Church, Boston, Massachusetts; Adjunct Faculty, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

A timely and refreshing look at an oft neglected, misunderstood, but central doctrine of the Bible—The 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!
-John Massey,
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 God—from the Old Testament and the ancient covenants, to the New Testament and today’s Christians, and on to the consummation. For those in my generation captured by George Ladd’s ‘already/not yet’ understanding of God’s 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.
-Kendell Easley,
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 kingdom—ultimately 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, God’s people proclaim the kingdom and embody God’s rule in every dimension of society and culture, and across the fabric of human life.
-Bruce Ashford,
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. It’s all here—the 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.
-Michael Honeycutt,
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.
-Jim Parker,
Associate Professor of Biblical Interpretation, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

    The Kingdom of God (Theology in Community), edited by Christopher W. Morgan and Robert A. Peterson, is an anthology exploring the biblical notion of the kingdom of God. Seven honored theologians (Gregg R. Allision, Clinton E. Arnold, Anthony B. Bradley, Gerald Bray, Stephen J. Nichols, Bruce K. Waltke, and Robert Yarbrough) take on the big questions of kingdom by each covering a facet of kingdom thought. Each scholar presents a brief essay (or two as in the case of Waltke and Yarbrough) in the form of a chapter. The topics include: The Kingdom in Historical and Contemporary Perspective, The Kingdom in the Old Testament (Both in covenants and story), The Kingdom in the New Testament (comparing Matthew and Revelation with Mark through the epistles), The Kingdom and Miracles, Satan, and Demons, The Kingdom and the Church, The Kingdom and Eschatology, and the Kingdom Today.

    Each chapter-essay was well written and seeming worthy of its own book. It was great to read from such a variety of scholars in one volume. However because each chapter stood in ordered isolation from the others there was a small bit of overlap on certain facets of thought such as eschatology and Revelation. It would have been interesting to have a recorded dialogue from the other scholars at the end of each chapter. As it is each chapter genuinely stands alone leaving the title of this series (Theology in Community) somewhat misleading.

    Overall I thought it was a great book and well worth your time if you are looking for a somewhat conservative scholarly volume on the Kingdom of God.
