    EKG Brings Personal Revival

    My own personal life was revived upon reading this book. Dr. Hemphill has obviously experienced what he is writing about first hand and he wants others to experience it too. God can use this book to make you a better Christian, better church member and a better servant of God. I encourage you to allow God to speak to you through this book, and then consider using it with a small group in your church. Terry L. Harper Executive Director West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists

    A most in-depth theological analysis...

    The Lord Jesus instructed His followers in Matthew 6:32-33 to 'Seek first His Kingdom.' In understanding Jesus' statement for the times in which we are living, Dr. Ken Hemphill has written perhaps the most in-depth theological analysis by any contemporary author on the Kingdom of God on this earth. Church and denominational leaders all across America need to read and ponder EKG: The Heartbeat of God. If Christians can ever come to terms with the call of Jesus to be Kingdom citizens, spiritual revival will break out in historic proportions.

    lifechanging

    Traces the theme of the Kingdom of God from Exodus to Revelation. This book is theologically sound and yet very readable. It challenges the reader to ask, 'Am I a kingdom person?' Makes a great gift.

    The Premier Book on God's Kingdom Agenda

    Hemphill has captured the biblical and practical essence of the subject of God's Kingdom. In his usual readable style, the author outlines major themes and makes profound personal application to these truths.
