Why We Must Give Up Our Obsession with Fixing the Church and What We Should Do Instead. There's a reason Jesus taught us to pray "Thy Kingdom come . . ." and not "Thy church come." The church clearly plays an important role in God's plans. It was established by Christ, and he is its Head. But have we put too much emphasis on the church? Have we confused a means of participating in God's Kingdom with the Kingdom itself?
In "Kingdom Come," church ministry consultant Reggie McNeal reveals why it's crucial to realign the church's mission with God's ultimate Kingdom agenda. You'll discover how you can get in on--and help lead--the Kingdom movement currently underway.Join the mission to help the Kingdom break "into" our hearts...and break "out" into the world.
"Reggie McNeal combines southern charm with gospel disruption. Just like the Jesus he follows, McNeal realigns Godâ€™s people with news of the Kingdom. This means everything gets reordered for the sake of Godâ€™s determination â€œto make all things new.â€ McNeal continues to point skillfully and faithfully to Godâ€™s essentials and priorities, which recast church and life in Kingdom terms." --Mark Labberton, President, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Kudos to Reggie McNeal, who is out to return us from Churchianity to Christianity. Read this book to understand that the church is not a club, but a launching pad; that discipleship is about a direction (following Jesus), not a doctrine; and that the gospel storyâ€™s star is God, not your church. May 'Kingdom Come' help us recalibrate so that we may live out the Abrahamic call to bless our cities and the nations." --Dr. Amy L. Sherman, Author of "Kingdom Calling"
