Editorial Reviews

Garwood P. Anderson
"Though it is a central assertion of the New Testament and the storm center of much serious historical and theological scholarship, the claim that with Jesus the kingdom of God has been inaugurated has still too little captured the popular imagination of Christians. Instead, far too often 'kingdom of God' language serves as a kind of code for various agendas only partially overlapping with the grand vision standing at the center of the New Testament witness. Allen Wakabayashi, himself well apprised of the scholarly discussion, has performed a tremendous service by exploring the revolutionary implications of this crucial theme for the way we carry on our lives and our mission as followers of Jesus. This is an engaging, hopeful and refreshingly honest guide to life in the already-and-not-yet reign of God."
Alec Hill
"Allen Wakabayashi makes the case that God's kingdom has come and signs of it are everywhere. We often miss it, though, because it is too radical, full of sacrifice and delight. Allen wants you to see the signs, take up your cross and join the parade."
Richard M. Weber
"Kingdom Come is a welcome challenge to believers awaiting the consummation of the kingdom in its fullness to be shaping present society according to God-honoring kingdom principles. The Westminster Confession has taught us that the chief end of man is to glorify God; Wakabayashi reminds us that the chief end of the kingdom itself is the glory of God. Unsatisfied with pie-in-the-sky escapism, Wakabayashi calls the evangelical community to fulfill its role as salt and light, pursuing justice, righteousness--even the glory of God--in all aspects of life in a fallen world."
Rick Richardson
"Confronting the pervasive individualism of our culture, Allen Wakabayashi calls us to work out the implications of God's kingdom for our lives, communities and mission into the world. His commitment to see God change the world, and especially the university world, is contagious."
Robbie F. Castleman
"Reading Kingdom Come was an invigorating reminder that the Bride of Christ has plenty to do to get ready for the wedding! And plenty to think about too. This book is an all-too-rare place where ministry and scholarship serve each other not only well, but with joy!"
