In this signature book Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl lays out a solid foundation for understanding the roots of Catholic laity's participation in the public arena, providing the tools you need to become an insightful ambassador for the kingdom of God.
It is ironic that American Christians are at once citizens of a democracy and of a kingdom.

The heart of Seek First the Kingdom is a masterful survey of the teachings of the Scriptures, theology, and Tradition on citizenship in the Kingdom of God. No mere metaphor, the Kingdom is real and substantial.
