Highly Recommended Book — by Reggie McNeal KINGDOM COME: Why we Must Give Up our Obsession with Fixing the Church — and What We Should Do Instead

Reggie’s newest book is a practical theology on the Kingdom of God.  He clarifies the relationship between the kingdom and the church in the biblical drama of God’s redemption story.  In the second half he lays out examples and concrete strategy for the people of God (i.e., the church) to live for Kingdom values and influence that entices others to become Christ the King followers.

And Jesus taught us to pray….”your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth at it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

“Jesus wants us to pray for, deeply desire, and dedicate ourselves to seeing the Kingdom as it operates in heaven made visible  and active in our daily experience here on earth.” (pg. xiv)

“The purpose of the church is to further God’s kingdom.” (pg. xx)

“…the key to church renewal lies in anchoring the mission and purpose of the church in the biblical teaching of what it means to be the people of God.” (pg. 4)
