    This is a gem that seems to be overlooked by many. The author has made biblical theology accessible to the general reader, a task that should not be underestimated. This book reads somewhat like a history book but has many, many insightful theological comments.

    The author does not mince his words and some might find his words too close to the truth. The following excerpt gives the prospective reader some idea of what is in store:

    (Discussion on Apocalyptic passages in the Bible)

    "The Apocalyptic is, therefore, a rebuke to the hybris of man, forever seeking to produce a perfect world order by political manoeuvering, social planning, and military preparation - without reference to God. It is a rebuke to the blasphemous hybris of the church of God, which will just "win the world for Christ" and bring in the Kingdom (of God) by preaching, conferences, and well administered programs...the Kingdom of God comes only for those who will be his people and obey him. It can can have no other citizens. Truly "the gate is narrow" (Matt 7:14)."

    Personally I find the words to be very apt and should be remembered by all Christians.

    I do not understand why one reviewer thinks that Bright is a "liberal" and does not think that Jesus is the son of God (many liberals will grit their teeth at her definition of "liberal"!). Maybe she has mistaken this book with another title? Bright is a student of W.F. Albright and refers often to Albright's work.

    I've read this book 3 times and am amazed at the authors ability to make historical information relevant for today. The chapter on the Suffering Messiah brought an entirely new revelation to my walk with the Lord. This book is more than a systematic historical presentation for it is presented in an evangelical way that causes us to look at ourselves in light of the Lord's expectations for His Church. I do not agree with his view on the Church being the New Israel but otherwise I highly recommend it.

    I found this book to be helpful in my study of the Kingdom of God. The author is thorough in tracking the concept through old and new testaments.The book is scholarly yet very readable. It is a top shelf book in my library.

    I bought this book because I was studying the kingdom and was disappointed with it. I must admit I didn't read much of it because in the first bit I read I discovered that the author doesn't believe Jesus is God's Son. He seemed theologically pretty liberal. I know Pentecost quotes him in "Things to Come" so he must not be all bad, but I just thought you should be warned!
