Update on Kingdom Come

I have recently become aware of two more reactions to my book, coauthored with John Mark Hicks, that I would like to pass on to my blog readers. I call attention to these for two reasons. First, these brothers have a good blog and deserve to be read. Second, I have an interest in how folks are reacting to the material in this book.

I have decided that it does not matter if a person really agrees with what John Mark and I have written or with our intepretations (the footnotes are there for others to follow up on). We believe that the conversation about the nature of the church, discipleship and God’s relationship to the world are matters of utmost importance … more important than the book. Thus if the book stimulates deeper reflection then we feel we have accomplished our task.

Alan Rouse placed a review of Kingdom Come on his blog “Christian Unity” at the following address http://rouses.net/blog/2006/11/book-review-kingdom-come.html While there you may wish to read through some of Alan’s previous blogs. I appreciate his perspective …

Mike Exum place a reaction to the book on his blog called “Messianic Gentile” (you have to love that title). You can access this as well as Mike’s other blogs at http://mikez-blog.blogspot.com/2006/11/sojourning-with-kingdom-come-quote.html

John Dobbs has been doing occasional reactions to the book on his blog “Out Here Hope Remains.” John’s address is http://johndobbs.wordpress.com/ John is the Barnabus of the internet and I appreciate his ministry more than he will ever know. I am humbled and grateful for these brothers for taking the time to share as they have shared.

And I want to call attention to an excellent ministry by a friend of mine Joel Solliday. “Campus CrossWalk” is a national web-magazine devoted to reaching college age people and those who work with them. Their mission motto: โ€œLiving for Christ on YOUR College Campus.โ€ The current issue theme is: “Tackling Tough Addictions.” Go to:

This site is an outreach resource for college age people and other young seekers. It serves campus ministries among churches of Christ nation-wide. It contains a national directory of campus ministries in state schools and universities. Also, the articles and items speak well to the practical “life-changing” power of faith in Christ.

    I remember Joel from Pepperdine — and I believe he was the minister at a good friend’s wedding…

    perhaps I’ll see you Sunday… (friend of Vonnie’s ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Bobby,

    I think the most important aspect of the book for the church today is the idea that we are to live as aliens and strangers in this world. Most of us blend into the environment far too easily. It seems to be impossible to free ourselves from the influence of the world. Yet God calls us to do that, so it cannot be impossible. And nothing is impossible for God. I really appreciate that call from your book.

    Bobby, thanks for your kind remarks. You are, as always, a fountain of encouragement.

    Thanks for a great book. It was an inspiring look into our (Restoration) history. It reminded me that God uses individuals who obey Him to achieve great things, despite flaws. I have a review at my website.
