About the book:
Even a brief reading of the Gospels shows that the Kingdom of God was the very theme of Christ's teaching, and that it was also the main thrust of the preaching of the early Christians. Yet very few modern believers have a clear idea what the Kingdom is.
In Thine is the Kingdom Peter Southgate presents the Biblical view of this very basic Christian belief. The result is a thoroughly readable yet detailed look at the subject, with some possibly rather unexpected discoveries.
This book is also available in Russian or Polish.
