Scot McKnight challenges the common misuse and misapplication of the idea of "kingdom" in today's churches. He shows that the present-day preoccupation with influencing society, culture, and politics distracts us from the mission of God: to build the local church.

:An Award-Winning Challenge to Popular Ideas of the Kingdom

According to Scot McKnight, "kingdom" is the biblical term most misused by Christians today. It has taken on meanings that are completely at odds with what the Bible says and has become a buzzword for both social justice and redemption. In Kingdom Conspiracy, McKnight offers a sizzling biblical corrective and a fiercely radical vision for the role of the local church in the kingdom of God. Now in paper.
