Item Description...
This book offers a program for Christian evangelism based on the teachings of Jesus in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. This is a superb resource volume for those wishing to test the soundness of their understanding and practice of Christian evangelism. It is solidly grounded in the ministry of Jesus and illumined by testimonial statements and experiences drawn from a cosmopolitan variety of witnesses. . . [Arias's] key contribution is the rehabilitation of the Kingdom of God as the controlling perspective for the proclamation of the gospel in word and deed. In a style helpful to scholar and nonscholar, he combs biblical sources, especially the Synoptic Gospels, in search of Jesus' own practice. The hermeneutical outlook is clearly dictated by Arias's own battle-tested experience in Bolivia, where he was bishop of the Methodist Church and where he underwent imprisonment as a consequence of his evangelistic practice. After reading this book, dichotomies are inexcusable: - proclamation or social responsibility - intra-church or extra-church evangelization - the conversion of individuals or conversion of communities. [This book] should become at least a minor classic. --Jorge Lara-Braud, Theology Today Chapter titles: The Good News of the Kingdom The Presence of the Kingdom The Imminence of the Kingdom The In-Breaking of the Kingdom The Eclipse of the Kingdom Announcing the Kingdom as Gift Announcing the Kingdom as Hope Announcing the Kingdom as Challenge End of the Eclipse? Mortimer Arias was Methodist bishop in Boliva, Professor of Hispanic Studies and Evangelization at the School of Theology, Claremont, and a member of the World Council of Churches' Commission on world Mission and Evangelism. With his wife, Esther, he coauthored the popular book The Cry of My People.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thy kingdom come!  Sep 27, 2007
Probably the best book I've read on the important subject of the kingdom of God. In a few pages, Arias distills hundreds of years of scholarship and church history to help us grasp the extreme relevance of this topic for any missional work today. I read a few pages at a time, then think for a few hours before resuming. I'm almost finished with it, and I will recommend it highly to my pastor.
Call To Return to the Center of the Gospel  May 1, 2007
A timely and incisive work that refocuses the followers of Jesus Christ on the center of the Gospel, the Kingdom of God. Arias passionately and clearly articulates why and how returning to this center will change our thinking about discipleship and church and authenticates his teaching with personal experiences of persecution and suffering. Focusing on social fluff and stage performances neither moves us to the next level of personal discipleship nor moves the local church to higher effectiveness. It is a dead end street. Arias reignited my passion for God, His message, His mission, and His people. His work also renewed my hope for the institutional church of North America.
a classic!  Jul 27, 2006
(Methodist) Bishop Arias gives us what is probably the most important treatment of the subject in the last 50 years! He demonstrates the crucial relevance of Jesus' core teaching for the manner and aim of the church's mission. This is indispensable for those seeking a recovery of the reigh of God as the orienting vision for the Christian life and the church's identity.
