: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.

Kingdom of God-Outside the traditioal square
4 stars By Gary, May 01 2018
I once and a while like to pick up books from Dr McKnight so I could enlighten other than my usual evangelical traditional authors.  Dr McKnight usually acts as a good bridge between the traditional and radical academics. This time, I think he got it right again.  

"kingdom" means both rule and realm.  "you can't have a realm without someone to rule it, and anyone who rules has to have a realm over which he or she rules, and it is unfair to the Bible to force us to choose"

Thank you Dr McKnight!
