“Tom and Steve have written a short book that accomplishes much. The reader is drawn to the kingdom that came with Jesus and is shown that in the kingdom we don”t sort out and solve problems the way it is done in society. They have done an excellent job at tying in the OT prophets” vision of the kingdom with the Gospels in order to envision a larger composite of God”s reign.” –Steve Staten, Teacher, Chicago Church of Christ.
