It's not breaking news that the world is in turmoil. Disease, economic issues, global and political unrest--it all combines, threatening to overwhelm us all with despair of ever achieving peace. In addition, many Christians have been told that they are responsible for bringing heaven to earth. They believe that if they can do enough good deeds, they will make life beautiful again.
Sue Edwards argues that this attitude is not only unrealistic, it causes many believers to lose the courage and stamina it takes to follow Christ. The answer to this dilemma--as to so many others--is found in scripture. Isaiah's prophecies of the coming King are a reminder that it is only when Jesus returns and sets up his kingdom that the promise of true justice and peace on earth will be fulfilled.
Shifting focus to the exciting future and away from unrealistic, impossible expectations of the present frees believers to live with adventurous anticipation and emotional health. It's good news for a generation of overwhelmed Christians!
