Dispensing with these views, he introduces us to his understanding of the biblical Kingdom incorporating in his study reflections on the Sabbath, the Jubilee, the Gospel, the Church, the Son of Man, and the Sermon on the Mount.^This fresh theological approach is deeply insightful, drawing extensively from Old and New Testament material and unraveling the complexities of these texts to make them accessible, uplifting and challenging.
