Title: Seek First: How the Kingdom of God Changes Everything

Author: Jeremy Treat

Publisher: Zondervan

Publication Date: April 9, 2019

Format: Softcover (paperback)

Length: 208 pages


“The key to life is finding out what matters most and building your life around it,” Jeremy Treat says in this book’s first chapter. For Christians, that means focusing on the one topic Jesus talked about more than anything else: the kingdom of God. Treat takes readers on a journey through what the kingdom of God is, when it’s coming, and how Christians can take part in it.

Treat’s writing style may seem a little flat to some readers, but his content is first rate. He overviews Scripture to show how God’s kingdom plans begin in Genesis and involve something even greater than simply people getting saved. He also notes key misunderstandings Americans have about the kingdom of God and what it takes to follow the more mysterious but fulfilling reality.
