The Mission of the Kingdom is a study of the theology of Luke in Luke and Acts. Luke's two volumes cover about 25% of the New Testament. Any writer who has contributed this much has to be important. Further, Luke is unique because he provides the big picture story of the kingdom, from the birth of Jesus, through his life and ministry, then Pentecost, and then into the early church and right up to Rome. Luke-Acts is the missions document in the New Testament. As one delves into his works there is so much more that emerges.

In the wake of September 11th instant theories have emerged that try to root Osama Bin Laden's attacks on Wahhabism. Muslim critics have dismissed this conservative interpretation of Islam that is the official creed of Saudi Arabia as an unorthodox innovation that manipulated a suggestible people to gain political influence. David Commins' book questions this assumption. He examines the debate on the nature of Wahhabism, and offers original findings on its ascendance in Saudi Arabia and spread throughout other parts of the Muslim world such as Afghanistan and Pakistan. He also assesses the challenge that radical militants within Saudi Arabia pose to the region, and draws conclusions which will concern all those who follow events in the Kingdom. The Wahhabi Mission and Saudi Arabia is essential reading for anyone interested in the Middle East and Islamic radicalism today.

Announcing the Kingdom provides a comprehensive survey of the biblical foundation of mission. It investigates the development of the kingdom of God theme in the Old Testament, describing what the concept tells us about God's mission in creation, the flood, and the covenant with Abraham. It then describes God's mission through the nation of Israel during the exodus, at Mt. Sinai, and through the kings of Israel. The book then examines God's mission as Israel is sent into exile and the stage is set for the Messiah's coming. Finally, the book considers the fulfillment of the kingdom of God through Jesus Christ and the church. It examines Jesus' parables and ministry, his proclamation of God's kingdom among the nations, and the work of the Holy Spirit through the church. Announcing the Kingdom is the product of Arthur Glasser's more than thirty years of teaching and has been used by thousands of students at Fuller Theological Seminary. Now revised by Glasser's colleagues, this study provides mission workers and students with a new understanding of their calling and its biblical foundation.

Why does God care for the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalized? This book traces God’s compassion as it is revealed in the Old and New Testaments, exploring the expression and impact of compassion in the early church through its actions and teachings as part of its witness. Focusing on the church’s responsibility to be compassionate, Dr Rupen Das underlines the theological and missiological questions central to any discussion on the compassion of God. Culminating with how compassion is lived out by God’s people, the book looks at concepts of transformation and the demonstration of the kingdom of God in the real world. This book provides an excellent biblical and theological foundation for anyone involved or interested in ministries of social justice, relief, development and compassion.

This revised version includes a new essay on the contemporary history of integral mission, a history that began with the Latin American Theological Fellowship, progressed within the Lausanne Movement, is bearing fruit globally through the Micah Network, and challenges evangelicals to address the major issues of our day. By almost any measure, a bold and confident use of the Bible is a hallmark of Christianity. Underlying such use are a number of assumptions about the origin, nature and form of the biblical literature, concerning its authority, diversity and message. However, a lack of confidence in the clarity or perspicuity of Scripture is apparent in Western Christianity. Despite recent, sophisticated analyses, the doctrine is ignored or derided by many. While there is a contemporary feel to these responses, the debate itself is not new. In this excellent study, Mark Thompson surveys past and present objections to the clarity of Scripture; expounds the living God as the Guarantor of his accessible, written Word; engages with the hermeneutical challenges; and restates the doctrine for today.

An Award-Winning Challenge to Popular Ideas of the Kingdom According to Scot McKnight, "kingdom" is the biblical term most misused by Christians today. It has taken on meanings that are completely at odds with what the Bible says and has become a buzzword for both social justice and redemption. In Kingdom Conspiracy, McKnight offers a sizzling biblical corrective and a fiercely radical vision for the role of the local church in the kingdom of God. Now in paper.

REDISCOVER THE 3D SCOPE OF KING JESUS' KINGDOM COMMISSION. While much has been written about the task of invading the kingdom of darkness to rescue those under Satan's control and influence (what the authors refer to as Pioneer Mission), the task of occupation and establishing God's Kingdom in the Earth has been largely overlooked. Focusing on the 7 Elements of any kingdom, the reader is taken through the reality of Jesus being King and his Kingdom coming to Earth today; what it means to live out the King's Constitution; the Places, Peoples, and Spheres which belong to the Domain of God's Kingdom; the lost vision of the Church as the King's governing ekklesia; the necessity for a return to a Kingdom economic system which will release apostolic workers and facilitate new innovations for societal transformation; how the Kingdom expands through new colonies and outposts, and restoring broken cities; what it means to live out Kingdom Citizenship.

Social justice and mission are hot topics today: there's a wonderful resurgence of motivated Christians passionate about spreading the gospel and caring for the needs of others. But in our zeal to get sharing and serving, many are unclear on gospel and mission. Yes, we are called to spend ourselves for the sake of others, but what is the church’s unique priority as it engages the world? DeYoung and Gilbert write to help Christians “articulate and live out their views on the mission of the church in ways that are theologically faithful, exegetically careful, and personally sustainable.” Looking at the Bible’s teaching on evangelism, social justice, and shalom, they explore the what, why, and how of the church’s mission. From defining “mission”, to examining key passages on social justice and their application, to setting our efforts in the context of God’s rule, DeYoung and Gilbert bring a wise, studied perspective to the missional conversation. Readers in all spheres of ministry will grow in their understanding of the mission of the church and gain a renewed sense of urgency for Jesus’ call to preach the Word and make disciples.

Desert Arabs and urban Americans encountered one another well before the discovery of oil on the Arabian Peninsula. Doctors for the Kingdom tells the stories of several physicians and nurses who committed their lives to the work of the Arabian Mission of the Reformed Church in America, known in the Middle East as "The American Mission." These courageous individuals left behind the comforts of their homeland in favor of serving the peoples of the Arabian Gulf. They brought modern healthcare to the emerging leaders of the region and their people. They overcame many obstacles to do their work, often laboring in primitive conditions, but did so gladly. Their work was deeply appreciated and created lasting impressions. These are stories of people coming together to create relationships of significance. This history needs to be known and understood if we are going to address the issues of our day.
