The book discusses looking at our lives through the kingdom of God. Jesus has a vision for the church, His followers, but his followers did not immediately follow the vision
McKinley discusses how the Jews were expecting a king to save them from oppression and bring freedom. Yet, Jesus came as a baby to a virgin Mary. He did not start his ministry right away. Jesus was the King of Kings, but no one was expecting him to come as a newborn.
He did not practice his ministry until he was old enough, then he died for our sins, only to rise again. Jesus also said he would come back and reclaim his kingdom and his bride His followers.
This is a very good book I hope you enjoy reading it.
