In what do individuals place their greatest hope? Is it a job? Money? Family? What will happen if they are laid off, the money runs out, or if loved ones pass away? In Kingdom, Come!, Philip Ryken encourages readers to focus on one dependable fact: Jesus is coming soon!
This volume is full of personal stories and insightful meditations on Scripture, and will help readers to persevere through hard times by looking to the glorious future that awaits all who trust in Christ and long for his kingdom.
I absolutely love this book! It is clear, compelling, and concise. You can’t fully understand what Jesus came to do, or what he wants you to do, without understanding the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately, much of what is written on this subject does little to clear up the confusion. I have over a hundred books on the Kingdom of God in my library, but this is the only one I’d recommend to everyone.
—Rick Warren, #1 New York Times best-selling author, The Purpose Driven Life; Pastor, Saddleback Church
Jesus’s return is imminent, even if it may not be immediate. In Kingdom, Come! Philip Ryken reminds us that the best is yet to come for those who love Jesus. While this world may be filled with confusion and woe, the kingdom that awaits us is beyond comprehension because we will finally be with God. In this powerfully encouraging book, Ryken encourages us to pray, ‘Come Lord Jesus’ and he is so right!
—Janet Parshall, host and executive producer, In the Market with Janet Parshall
Phil Ryken knows Scripture, knows college students, and knows the time in which we live. Kingdom, Come! reminds not only college students, but the rest of us, that we live in the tension between the ‘here and now’ and the ‘yet to come’ as we strive to serve Christ the King!
—James Barnes, president, Bethel University
