Kingdom Theology for Life,
This review is from: The Gospel of the Kingdom: Scriptural Studies in the Kingdom of God (Paperback)
I bought this as a recommended book whilst doing a Wordplus course with new frontiers to help with an essay on the Kingdom of God. I hadn't read any really good books on the Kingdom of God - they had either focused on one side of the arguement about it being here and now yet later, or being a spiritual place, etc.
What impressed me about this book is Ladd's ability to take the different theological views regarding the subject, explain how they tie in to Biblical teaching and then weaving them into the scriptural picture of the Kingdom of God being present but not now.
For such a difficult subject (try to look at references to the Kingdom in a concordance and you will see what I mean) Ladd has written a very readable and enjoyable book. If you want to know what it is like to live in the Kingdom of God then this is the book for you.
I would highly recommend this book to new Christians who want to know about Kingdom life and to established Christians looking for encouragement in their daily walk.
