More about the Kingdom of God is a book the whole church can read and study. Whether as an individual study or discussing in an Adult Bible Class or a Life Group, students will find using this book an exciting and insightful way to learn and understand more about the Kingdom of God.
For about two thousand years, many Christians have read about the Kingdom of God in New Testament scripture and never really understood its meaning or relevance to their daily lives as believers. Not only this, but the fact that the phrase “Kingdom of God” is not found in Old Testament scriptures would, in itself, raise some curiosity about why it is found readily within the New Testament. One would think the spoken words of Jesus on this subject, which were written down, would be easily interpreted and followed. None of that holds true with the subject of the Kingdom of God.
John Shafer says, “The riches and nearness of the Kingdom of God are closer than you think. If you want to know more, this study will help you find it. Living in the Kingdom is not something that is only to be enjoyed when one goes to heaven. When you find it, nothing will be more important and living in it will become your ultimate joy. You will learn during this study that the Kingdom of God involves two great moments: fulfillment within history (already in the form of Jesus) and consummation at the end of history (not yet). Living in the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
