News flash: "The Bible doesn't teach that people go to heaven or hell when they die." Rather, it teaches that God's kingdom will come to this earth in judgment and restoration, making everything wrong with the world right. The doorway into the age to come is not death but the return of Christ when his followers experience resurrection rather than disembodiment. This simple idea is not only the key to understanding the biblical vision of the future, but it also formed the core of Jesus's gospel message, and it provides the motivation to live out your faith today. The goal of this book is nothing short of igniting a revolution in the church's understanding of the kingdom of God.
Kingdom Journey marries a biblical exploration to a historical investigation to explain not only what the kingdom of God is, but also how Christianity lost this precious pearl of great price. Thankfully, several movements over the past five centuries have initiated recoveries of the kingdom idea, but many Christians remain in the dark, beset with medieval folk theology. This book will open your eyes to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness with clarity and vigor.

“The concrete realization and manifestation of the kingdom or rule of God on earth, is indeed the central theme of Scripture. Sean Finnegan demonstrates that most clearly, covering all the issues in an exceptionally engaging but sharply analytical style. Indeed, this message has the potential to revive the gospel message in a way that can transform the world.”

—James D. Tabor, retired professor of Christian origins, University of North Carolina at Charlotte



“In this intensely personal, yet thoroughly researched book, Sean Finnegan invites us to join him on a journey of exploration to discover the authentic biblical vision of the kingdom of God—and why it matters. Interweaving his own story with biblical exposition and historical investigation, Finnegan challenges the reader to embrace God’s marvelous plan to transform this broken world into the new heavens and the new earth.”

—J. Richard Middleton, professor of biblical worldview and exegesis, Northeastern Seminary at Roberts Wesleyan University



“I greatly appreciate and recommend Sean Finnegan’s book Kingdom Journey. With a fantastic review of kingdom theology in church history, from the church fathers to the Middle Ages, to Weiss and Schweitzer, to Ladd and Wright, the author tells of his journey concerning the kingdom. With a practical emphasis on family life, church leadership, mission work, and diligent study, Finnegan is an excellent guide through his life story, through his education, and through Scripture, to lead us into a clearer picture of the practical, real, kingdom of God that Jesus and the prophets focused on.”

—Joe Martin, retired president, Atlanta Bible College



“A captivating quest for the unsung message of the historical Jesus—a gospel of earthly restoration rather than heavenly escape—and a clarion call for the rediscovery of its meaning for the Christian faith and life. Sean Finnegan’s exploration of not only what was lost, but how it was lost and how to retrieve it, marks a step forward in the ‘earthly turn’ of Christian eschatology.”
