"The kingdom of God perspective has been one of Glasser's major contributions to missiology. It has helped to broaden missiological reflection, to break the impasse between evangelism and social action, to create the possibility of ecumenical conversations about missiology, and to highlight the social and political implications of the kingdom of God for missionary activity."-- New Testament Abstracts
This work surveys the development of the kingdom of God theme in the Old Testament and demonstrates how it reveals God's mission in creation, Israel, and among the nations. The authors then turn to the fulfillment of the kingdom through Jesus' ministry and the continuing work of the Holy Spirit.
Based on Arthur Glasser's more than thirty years of teaching experience, this study provides mission students and workers with an ideal textbook for a "Biblical Foundations of Mission" course.
