Paperback book -- 160 pages -- Loyola Press -- January 2007
Jesus' entire mission and ministry revolved around one key concept: the kingdom of God. But many modern Christians misunderstand the term "kingdom of God." They see it as a synonym for heaven, and perceive it as "still to come" rather than "already begun."
Through 30 short essays, businessman, social-justice worker, and citizen organizer Greg Pierce sets out to help people reimagine the kingdom of God as Jesus originally intended — it is both heavenly and earthly, and because it is to come "on earth, as it is in heaven," each of us is called to roll up our shirtsleeves and help make this world the way it should be.
Each chapter ends with two set of questions: one for Christians and another for dialogue with non-Christians.
The booklets A New Way of Seeing and Una Manera Nueva de Ver offer excerpts from this book in a format helpful for small group discussion (see both below).
