An intriguing, informed look at salvation and the kingdom of God / 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 God's 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. / Ben Witherington keeps coming up with books that make the best biblical scholarship and theological reflection available to the church. Now Ben brings the reign of God alive for the contemporary church. A very useful, lively book. William H. Willimon / Bishop of the United Methodist Church, North Alabama Conference / Do you or your congregation celebrate Kingdomtide? In this book Ben Witherington makes a great case for understanding and celebrating the reign of God more thoroughly in our Christian communities. As he explores the strong implications for us of realizing God's reign, we discover that our churches are missing many opportunities that would change the world if we seized them. Marva J.
