The Kingdom of God and the Glory of the Cross

Author: Patrick Schreiner
Publisher: Crossway
Genre: Bible Study
Book Description

When Jesus began his ministry, he announced that the kingdom of God was at hand. But many modern-day Christians don’t really understand what the kingdom of God is or how it relates to the message of the gospel.

Defining kingdom as the King’s power over the King’s people in the King’s place, Patrick Schreiner investigates the key events, prophecies, and passages of Scripture that highlight the important theme of kingdom across the storyline of the Bible—helping readers see how the mission of Jesus and the coming of the kingdom fit together.

Reading Level: Easy
Schreiner helps us begin to understand biblical theology by helping us see the theme of the kingdom of God in the Old and New Testaments. He shows how this theme is relevant to us today. Schreiner paints a biblical portrait of the new heavens and new earth, which will encourage anyone who reads it. He also carefully shows how the kingdom is related to Jesus, the cross, and the gospel message. It's not a super hard read and relevant to everyone who wants to grow in their knowledge of the kingdom of God.
