Overview

The Kingdom Way: How the Kingdom of God Transforms our Lives, Churches, and Cities by Keith Wood

The Kingdom Way shows how the Kingdom of God can influence our lives, churches, and cities for Christ. It relies on Scripture to develop a clear and compelling vision of the Kingdom of God that is simple, and yet provides a powerful and coherent model for many areas of life and ministry.

The first chapter lays out a clear, precise, and biblical definition of the Kingdom of God as it exists today. The following chapters develop practical applications by carefully examining the Kingdom of God, and seeing how various components of it can be applied in our lives, churches, and cities. Some of the topics covered include the centrality of the Word of God, the importance of confession in our walk with God, abiding in Christ for empowerment from Him, unity in the church, and the need for prayer to bring the power of God in all these areas.

The book builds toward the conclusion that the Kingdom of God is meant to be a visible, transformative force within cities, and goes on to paint a clear picture of what that looks like. Using historic and recent examples of cities that have undergone radical transformation through the Gospel, the book makes the case that transformation of our cities is something we must all work toward, and can actually see happen in our time.

Far from theoretical, however, the book is immensely practical. Its groundbreaking, thoughtful approach to application will clarify your understanding of the Kingdom, and provide guidance and encouragement as you join with Jesus in working for the transformation of your city. It should be of interest to all Christians devoted to growth and ministry, and will be of particular interest to pastors, elders, and mature and maturing believers.

About the Author

Keith Wood was born in upstate New York and became a Christian believer at the age of eleven, around the time his family moved to Miami, Florida. He attended several colleges and universities, including Moody Bible Institute, ultimately completing a BA in Christian Missions at Montreat College in North Carolina.

Expecting to go into full time mission work, he was surprised when he was redirected toward a career in Geology. He completed a Master's in Geology at Virginia Tech, and began work as an exploration and mining geologist soon after. He continues to work in gold exploration for a major mining company in Nevada.

Keith and his wife Patricia have been involved in home- and church-based ministry for twenty years. Keith uses his spiritual gifts of wisdom and teaching to mentor men in his church and community, promote and participate in prayer, and work toward citywide unity and revival for his city of Elko, Nevada.
