In this completely revised 25th anniversary edition of his highly acclaimed book, Donald B. Kraybill explores Jesus' Upside-Down Kingdom. The kingdom of God announced by Jesus appeared upside-down in first-century Palestine. Jesus wins by serving and triumphs by losing. Moreover, the kingdom of God still looks upside-down as it breaks into diverse cultures around the world today. Translated into six different languages and selling over 60,000 copies, this book calls us to faithful discipleship.
