Book Description

1 Nov 2007
'As a youngster,' writes David Adam, 'I always wanted to know more. I liked to climb the next hill and look around the next corner. My mother said I wanted to see the "back of beyond". I was never quite sure what she meant but I was often aware of an otherness in the midst of what was plainly in view.' Both visionary and engagingly down-to-earth, Living in Two Kingdoms helps us recognize that the visible world of matter and the invisible world of spirit are not two worlds but one. We can be sure that whatever harsh reality we may have to face from time to time, the true reality is that we are never on our own. Because here and now - whatever it may feel like, we are truly part of the kingdom of God!

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with good things 25 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
This slim, easy to read volume by Adam is packed with good things. Drawing on his own experiences, the celtic tradition and the story of the prodigal son, he `helps us to recognise that the visible world of matter and the invisible world of spirit are not two worlds but one' (to quote the blurb). Each chapter ends with meditations, readings and prayers, and unlike some books these are an integral part of the book that really add to its value. Through these Adam is always gently challenging his readers to deepen their relationship with God, and not simply to be passive readers. Anyway I think it's excellent and would commend it to anyone who wanted to think about what it means to be `in the world but not of the world' or the 'now and not yet' of the kingdom.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thought provoking read 1 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Based on "THe Prodigal Son" story, Living in two Kingdoms is a thought provoking read, helped by the meditation or exercise section at the close of each chapter. The pause, presence, picture, ponder, promise parts of this section can help improve your personal relationship with God, and cause you to look inwardly to your real self.
