Dual Citizens: Worship and Life Between the Already and the Not Yet

3.11  ·  Rating Details ·  57 Ratings  ·  13 Reviews
New covenant believers live between "the already" and "not yet," a point in redemptive history between the partial and complete fulfillment of God's promises. This means they are exiles and pilgrims in the divinely ordained overlap of the ages. As Rev. Jason J. Stellman argues in his book Dual Citizens: Worship and Life Between the Already and the Not Yet, this biblical mo ...more

Initially promising, but ultimately unsatisfying. That 19s how I would describe Dual Citizens: Worship and Life between the Already and the Not Yet by Jason Stellman. Now I want to be clear that I 19m not on a witch hunt for Jason Stellman 19s head. I 19ve never met him, but clearly he 19s a brother in Christ, and I would say that he seems like a pretty cool guy. I randomly discovered his book while browsing Nashville 19s local reformed bookstore (logos), was highly intrigued by the subject matt ...more

This book has the subtitle "Worship and Life between the Already and the Not Yet" which I found to be very intriguing. From the title, subtitle, and brief description of the book I found I thought the book would be about the seeming push-pull relationship between living on earth but living for Heaven. I was fairly wrong and disappointed.

The book is divided into two sections. The first 7 chapters cover the worship aspect of Christianity and the last 7 chapters deal, somewhat generally, with life.

I feel I must update my review based on Jason's recent decision to question both Sola Scriptura and Sola Fide. Along with the possibility that Jason is heading towards Roman Catholicism, I can no longer endorse this book as a sound book for the sincere lay researcher. His action to move in that direction goes against everything I believe to be true. Although he may have tried to remain faithful to Reformed thought while writing this book, I will have to take time to reread it once I have time, f ...more

Dual Citizens presents a timely topic that Christians should engage with, especially in the post 'Moral Majority' era. Unfortunately, I found this book too loosely organized. The chapters seemed only distantly related to one another, and I wasn't always able to make the connection between what I was reading, and the book's main idea. If you're interested in these topics (I think Stellman was trying to do too much here), then I'd recommend Horton's "God of Promise: Introducing Covenant Theology" ...more

Over all, I liked this book. I got alot out of it and really liked alot of the (what I call) "one-liners". Which are easy to remember. I picked up this book in hopes of it answereing some questions for me, but I feel like it didn't answer the one I was looking for. I was hoping to understand better the Reformer's ideas of separating Church and Politics. Where as most Evangelicals keep it mixed and push for the "Christianization of America". Which I dissagree with. Although this did lay the found ...more

While I suspect I disagree with Stellman's implementation of the ideas discussed in this book, its treatments of Word and Sacrament, pilgrim theology, satisfaction in but not with the world, and affirmation of Christian liberty (and the value of giving up liberty) are all excellent.
Pastoral and not technical in style.

Good introduction to Two Kingdom theology. Not a scholarly work, but a popular level monograph. Stellman's strengths are in his wit and ability to turn a phrase - Suburbylon - LOL... and his rigorous exegesis. His constant dealing with the text is devastating to the Transformationlist position - leaving now quarry. Definitely a recommend.

This was a good book, but of uneven quality. Some sections were very good indeed, and others were greatly hampered by the overarching amill pessimism. Still, it was a valuable read for me.

This book was much more academic than I would have preferred. I was hoping for something a little more down to earth. It read more like a dissertation.
