Publisher's Description

Including practical theology of why living out of a place of authentic desire is central to living in the Kingdom of God, Rick McKinley will help you understand how your innermost desires shape your experience of following Jesus.A Kingdom Called Desire will help you:• Uncover your core desires • Discover the freedom of living honestly before God • Allow God’s desires to shape your life • See how your own unique personality, gifts, and experiences can be used by Jesus in his KingdomThe results of McKinley’s life-changing message can be seen in people from his own community at Imago Dei. While A Kingdom Called Desire will inspire you to see the practical display of Kingdom theology, it will also be deeply formational, allowing you to engage in your own personal journey and find healing and redemption in your unmet desires. A Kingdom Called Desire will unleash you from stale religious duty, as well as cynical social activism, bringing you into a dynamic love relationship with Jesus, motivated by the fulfillment of authentic desire.

Leading the readers deeper into their own hearts, A Kingdom Called Desire by Rick McKinley passes over the petty "how" questions and dives straight into the "why" questions. Perhaps you are tired of your dreams not matching reality. Well, if you're exhausted from leaving one spiritual longing only to find another, this book is for you. Author Rick McKinley gut-honestly addresses issues that prevent us from satisfying our true desires, not shying away from any topic, including sex. McKinley reveals the fears that suppress our desires and prevent most Christians from completely joining the Kingdom of God. Helping readers name their hearts' desires, McKinley points back to the only thing that can fulfill those dreams: a true relationship with Jesus Christ. A Kingdom Called Desire is not a how-to book but rather an exploration of the human condition of desire.

A Kingdom Called Desire contains 13 easy-to-read chapters, each followed by four to six insightful questions. This paperback is targeted to adult Christians who are restless for the Kingdom of God, which is not a kingdom of duty or guilt, McKinley explains, but a kingdom of desire that engages the very soul of humanity.

At times, A Kingdom Called Desire becomes a bit redundant when the author strives for emphasis, and McKinley can sometimes mount a soapbox when he wants to campaign for personal agenda matters. However, the readers have much to gain from this encouraging book. A Kingdom Called Desire redirects fear to hope and excitement. It beckons readers to join the adventure of being part of the Kingdom of God. – Estee Wells, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
