Description

Michael Horton writes, "Some Christians so stress the 'kingdom living' of individual believers in the world that the church and its partial manifestation of the kingdom of God through the means of grace become subordinate. Others confuse the church with that kingdom in its fully realized form." In his development and delineation of a theology of both the kingdom and the church, Horton seeks to show that they are interrelated but not identical. Along the way he explores the difference between the cultural mandate and the Great Commission, biblical images of the church, the ecclesiologies of various Christian traditions, and the integral connection between eschatology, ecclesiology, and kingdom. Derived from Michael Horton's recently released The Christian Faith, already one of the most significant systematic theologies of the past 50 years, this digital short tackles one of today's theological hot topics with insight and charity.
