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 Gods 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.
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 Gods 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.
