Title: The Kingdom of God (Biblical Theology for Life series)

Author: Nicholas Perrin

Publisher: Zondervan

Publication Date: February 26, 2019

Format: Paperback (softcover)

Length: 272 pages


The term “kingdom of God” can mean many different things, depending on who you ask. Nicholas Perrin overviews the major definitions different theologians have used, then considers the view given in Scripture. As he does so, he answers six questions about the kingdom (what is it, who’s in it, when will it come, where will it be, how will it come, and why is it coming).

Perrin strikes a great balance between readability and depth, unpacking Scripture’s full ideas while keeping the writing from getting too dense. The view he provides of the kingdom of God is highly biblical and provides solid answers for academics or laymen seeking a better understanding of the concept.
