Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
As Pastor Brian Tome was counseling a recent convert in his office, he realized that he had nothing on his bookshelf that could give her the "straight talk" on the radical new life she was about to begin. So he put together this book-a bold, honest, humorous guide to joining the ever-advancing Kingdom of God. "The Revolution," as Tome calls the Christian life, is already underway, and while it is both exhilarating and fulfilling, it's also messy, chaotic and unpredictable. This book will guide the reader from the basic (navigating through Christian kitsch at the bookstore) to the practical (Bible reading and getting along with other Christians) to the profound (concepts of forgiveness, afterlife and prayer). To those who had previously dismissed the "Christian" life, those who stand on the outside desperately wanting more, this book will be the breath that clears the air, feeds their desire, and shows them how to follow a Revolutionary God.
