New Book on Living in the Shadow of the Kingdom of God
John Mark Hicks & Bobby Valentine's new book is now available through Leafwood/ACU Press. The book is a major study of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus living in the "shadows" of the Second Coming . . . in a postmodern age. This book explores the dynamics of the theology of David Lipscomb and James A. Harding, then moves to make contemporary application of that theology. The book is divided into three major sections:
Divine Dynamics which chapters that cover
The contours of kingdom theology
God's active involvement in the world through providence
The Holy Spirit as the divine agent and power for kingdom living
Kingdom Spirituality which covers the "Means of Grace"
Listening to God
Fellowship with the Poor
Communion with God through Worship
Crying for the Kingdom in prayer
Kingdom Life . . . the Essential Freedoms of Disciples as Children of God
Pledging Allegiance to the kingdom
Freedom to Think and Speak
Afterword: Where do we go from here?
This book is more than an exercise in remembering. It is an exercise in spiritual formation. Each chapter concludes with a prayer, suggested exercises and readings.
