Ladd’s book is a must read for most American/Western Christians who look at their individual faith as the benchmark for what God is doing in the world today. As believers we need to wrestle with the Kingdom idea of God calling us into His reign that is already here on earth, but at the same time is not yet fully realized as it will be when Christ returns. We need more people writing and thinking through these issues. As a minor note, there are some theological differences I have with the author, but this book is a must read.
