About "The Kingdom of Christ"
^In this scholarly work, Russell D. Moore relates the history leading up to the new "Kingdom" consensus among evangelicals from the time theologian Carl F. H. Henry called for it fifty years ago. He examines how this consensus offers a renewed theological foundation for evangelical engagement in the social and political realms. ^While evangelical scholars and pastors will be interested in this sharp, insightful book, all evangelicals interested in public policy will find it useful in discovering how this new Kingdom perspective works out in the public square.

Moore trances the historical understanding of Kingship though the lens of Dispensational and Covenantal schema. Moore paints the man characters that have influenced the theology of Christ's Kingdom by dealing with Carl Henry and George Eldon Ladd as his main interlocutors. The hardest part of reading this book were the endnotes. 187 pages in the body and 90 pages of endnotes. This will become extremely annoying for somebody that reads notes while reading the body. A good depiction of the already-not yet Kingdom theology is outlined and discussed. I did find it a little jarring that Moore kept referring to Covenant understandings of Israel as "Replaced" by the church. I wasn't sure if it was used in a pejorative or just plainly reckless way. What was lacking were clear conclusions! If Moore attempted to lean in one direction more than another he was excellent at masking it. 3.1 oo 5
