A superb book, it relates God’s mission to God’s people for God’s Kingdom in God’s world, as found in God’s Word. Evangelical missiology at its best!
—Gerald H. Anderson, director emeritus, Overseas Ministries Study Center
Announcing the Kingdom takes the reader on a panoramic tour of the Kingdom of God from Genesis to Revelation. A theology of mission centered on the Kingdom, it intersects biblical exegesis with missiological reflection to produce a solidly evangelical and relevant understanding of mission for Christians who want to share the good news in today's troubled world.
