What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“I absolutely love this book! It is clear, compelling, and concise. You can’t fully understand what Jesus came to do, or what he wants you to do, without understanding the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately, much of what is written on this subject does little to clear up the confusion. I have over a hundred books on the Kingdom of God in my library, but this is the only one I’d recommend to everyone.”
Rick Warren, #1 New York Times best-selling author, The Purpose Driven Life; Pastor, Saddleback Church

“Jesus’s return is imminent, even if it may not be immediate. In Kingdom, Come! Philip Ryken reminds us that the best is yet to come for those who love Jesus. While this world may be filled with confusion and woe, the kingdom that awaits us is beyond comprehension because we will finally be with God. In this powerfully encouraging book, Ryken encourages us to pray, ‘Come Lord Jesus’ and he is so right!”
Janet Parshall, Host and Executive Producer, In the Market with Janet Parshall

“Phil Ryken knows Scripture, knows college students, and knows the time in which we live. Kingdom, Come! reminds not only college students, but the rest of us, that we live in the tension between the ‘here and now’ and the ‘yet to come’ as we strive to serve Christ the King!”
James (Jay) H. Barnes III, President, Bethel University

“In a world surrounded by moral relativism, spiritual apathy, and cultural decadence, Kingdom, Come! offers a refreshing and catalytic reminder that hope lies embedded in a simple truth—Jesus is coming! Phil Ryken’s challenge stands as nothing other than a clarion call for the followers of Christ to address spiritual myopia by applying the optics of the inevitable return of our Lord and King. Kingdom, Come! is good news indeed!”
Samuel Rodriguez, President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; author, The Lamb’s Agenda and Path of Miracles

“In a world that is focused on the ‘now,’ Phil Ryken sets one’s gaze on God’s coming kingdom—a vista that both stirs the mind and lifts the soul. Anyone who loves Christ and His word will resonate with these eight chapters—a great gift to the students and faculty who heard them first, and now, to us, who read them.”
Randall J. Gruendyke, Campus Pastor, Taylor University; contributor, Preach the Word

“Even after receiving a Christian liberal arts education, we can find ourselves struggling to live truly for Christ’s kingdom instead of our own. If you’ve ever faced this, take a moment to read this book. Dr. Ryken stretches ideas of kingdom living from an imaginary building project to an all-consuming reality with succinct and powerful illustrations. In this text, as in Edman Chapel, he engagingly invites us to choose joy through surrender, and hope through desire for the coming shalom.”
Jessica Min, Wheaton College Student Body President, 2011–2012
