Reviews - What do our customers think?
He tells it like it is  Feb 27, 2007
John Bright's well written book, "The Kingdom of God," certainly is profound in the depth of its insight. For example, he says, "It must be underscored and underscored again that while there is not a sign of defeatism or of despairing passivity regarding its mission in the early church, there is in all the New Testament no brave talk of winning the world for Christ and of unshering in his Kingdom-not so much as one syllable!" I totally agree with him on this and almost every other point he makes in this excellent book. For to long, we have been fed a fear producing lie that if we do not get the gospel to the unreached the end won't come. Also, because of our sin, these pagans will go into a Christless eternity.

Yes, believers are to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. All Christians have a part to play in this endeavor. God loves us so much he wants to use us in carrying out his mission. But we can give, go to the mission field, etc, etc, etc when God hasn't called us to do so. What our Savior is most interested in is believers learning to hear his voice and walk in obedience to it. In short he wants relationship with his children.

When descibing the temple religion in Israel, Bright shockingly, but in my opinion accurately calls it a cult. While David, the man after God's heart, had some good points, he also had many flaws. For one he had many wives, which brought with them their pagan "cult" religions. He also was a man of war, who had done much killing. So much in fact, that becuase of this, God had Soloman build the temple. David covered up his murder of Uriah the Hititte for a full year. Only when confronted by the prophet did he repent.

And while Israel under it's most Godly leaders had all the proper religious form in the temple ritual, its adherants usually lacked the love that is the heart of the law. For example, Soloman built his Eygptian wife, Pharoh's daughter a lawish palace with conscripted Israelite labor. His many other lavish building projects were carried out the same way. His lavish spending, which so awed the Queen of Sheba, put a severe strain on Israel's economy and caused the levy of high taxes on its citizens.

Soloman like his father had many pagan wives, which enticed the Israelites to follow other God's, and led to their downfall. Rehoboam followed in his father's footsteps and spent lavishly. This, along with a desire to return to the old charismatic leadership found in the book of Judges, is what caused the ten nothern tribes to break of from the two southern ones. Yes, their leadership was no more righteous than that of David and his family.

Throughout the book, Bright talks about the ancient paths. In our day, we are nastolgic about the past. What Bright is calling for isn't outward reform, but an inward change of heart. The ancient paths are from the beginning of time and are the Father God's paths of love and justice. People walking in the old or ancient ways see their sin for what it is. They see that apart from the Savior's empowering they are hopeless to walk in obedience to his commands, which are all based on love and not outward ritual. This book gave Scriptural backing for some beliefs of mine for which that was needed.
A Powerful Book  Feb 11, 2006
This is a powerful exposition on the biblical concept on the kingdom of God. It is a call to faith, as we look for and await 'a city which has foundations' and 'an imperishable hope'.
I think perhaps the most powerful moment comes when the author explains how Jesus of Nazareth, recognizing his messianic calling and joining it with that of Isaiah's suffering servant, lays down his life, thus becoming a suffering messiah (a novel concept at the time)and, incidentally, our sin offering and example.
Its comprehensive but not an overly difficult read. Highly recommended.
Old Testament Kingdom of God vs. New Testament Kingdom of God  Aug 3, 2005
John Bright takes us from the Old Testament concept of the Kingdom of God to the New Testament concept of the Kingdom.
Outstanding Book  Jan 16, 2005
While this book was written many decades ago, it is very relevant to today's church. It overviews Israel's history and shows why the Israelites didn't understand Jesus' talk about the Kingdom of God. Even the Israelites in the Old Testament didn't grasp God's spiritual kingdom. This book is a must read!!
Great Book  Jul 4, 2004
You can tell this was written with quite difficult theological language of the 1950's - yet it is a magnificant overall biblical framework for the topic of "The Kingdom of God" and how it relates to our everyday lives.
