A lot of our preaching and teaching focuses on how to get saved – or, if you prefer different words, about the rescuing hand of Jesus who has come to deliver us from sin and death.

When we do talk about life in the Kingdom of God it is usually with the goal of getting something through applying biblical principles that are suppose to produce certain results. Or, in some streams, we talk about maintaining a ‘holy’ life full of rules designed to keep us from being polluted by the sins of the world

Hunter's book can be divided into three sections: (1) Understanding what it means to be a Christian. (2) A description of the new way to live now that you are a Christian. (3) How to live together in community as a Christian.

The first section was excellent, beautiful, even compelling. I would give the first three chapters 5 stars as they painted a picture of the kingdom of God and our calling to the kingdom through Jesus Christ. It was a wonderful section.

The second section was OK. I would give

We’ve all heard the message, it says that we’re sinners separated from God, in desperate need of grace.

Why the incarnation? What are we saved for? The answer, really, is that this is an anemic view of the gospel (so too, really, is the so called “Social Gospel,” but for other reasons). It is these qu ...more

I gave this book by Bishop Hunter three stars primarily because I liked his book on temptation better, and that one definitely deserves more than three stars, whereas this one didn't jump out to me as much. This book is very similar, only it uses different stories and approaches of one aspect of his temptation book. A bunch of ideas and materials cross over from book to book though, so it felt very familiar right away
good stuff to chew on
