Kingdom Conspiracy: Returning to the Radical Mission of the Local Church Paperback - 2016

by Scot McKnight


From the publisher

An Award-Winning Challenge to Popular Ideas of the Kingdom

According to Scot McKnight, "kingdom" is the biblical term most misused by Christians today. It has taken on meanings that are completely at odds with what the Bible says and has become a buzzword for both social justice and redemption. In Kingdom Conspiracy, McKnight offers a sizzling biblical corrective and a fiercely radical vision for the role of the local church in the kingdom of God. Now in paper.

Praise for Kingdom Conspiracy

2015 Outreach Resources of the Year Award Winner
One of Leadership Journal's Best Books for Church Leaders in 2014

"This is a must-read for church leaders today."--Publishers Weekly

"A timely resource for the missional church to reexamine some basic assumptions that impact church practice in the everyday."--Outreach

From the rear cover

The Kingdom of God Is More Than Social Justice or Personal Salvation

"There is so much talk these days about 'the kingdom of God, ' and yet there is so much confusion about what this phrase even means! The result is that a beautiful, powerful concept that should be uniting the church is now contributing to its fragmentation. This is why Kingdom Conspiracy is one of the most important and timeliest works to be written in recent years. McKnight brings much-needed clarity to what 'kingdom of God' means--and doesn't mean--and how it relates to the church and its mission. This is a book that needs to be read by everyone--scholars and laypeople alike--who wants to understand and consistently live out what it means to be a follower of King Jesus."
--Gregory A. Boyd, senior pastor, Woodland Hills Church, St. Paul, Minnesota; author of Repenting of Religion and Benefit of the Doubt

"The misappropriation of faddish terms can be an unfortunate reality for American Christians. The casual manner in which we toss around phrases like 'kingdom theology' and 'missional churches' can have an adverse effect on our efforts to form a robust ecclesiology. Evoking 'kingdom' language has become the new vogue among missional communities--almost as in vogue as the word 'missional' itself. With prescient analysis and pastoral insight, Scot McKnight succeeds in providing a scriptural and theological text for those who have heard the word so often but failed to think through its meaning. McKnight offers a fresh take on the kingdom that will serve as a primer for followers of Jesus who seek first the kingdom of God in our own context."
--Soong-Chan Rah, North Park Theological Seminary; author of The Next Evangelicalism

"Unlocking what Jesus meant by 'the kingdom of God' is essential to our witness to the gospel. If Christians today are going to live in the world as the church, we need to understand the message of this book."
--Rich Stearns, president of World Vision US; author of Unfinished and The Hole in Our Gospel

"Over the past decade, McKnight . . . has emerged as America's theologian. . . . His works provide an extra layer of theological undergirding for pastors and lay people who wish to go deeper in Bible study and live more consciously under the rule of 'King Jesus, ' as he refers to Jesus Christ. . . . This is a must-read for church leaders today."
--Publishers Weekly
