What is the Kingdom of God? Michael Lawson will surprise you with what he reveals it to be!
Michael Lawson is the Archdeacon of Hampstead and trains church leaders in practical theology.
"This is a vivid, well-focused, down-to-earth survey of kingdom faith and life, with the shrewdest analysis of the Toronto blessing that I have yet seen added as a bonus. Highly recommended."
J. I. Packer
(1926–2020), Rector, All Souls Church, Langham Place, London
"With his expert grasp of the Old Testament, his remarkable ability to communicate with simplicity and clarity, and his deep pastoral and theological insight, Michael Lawson manages to root this big Bible idea firmly in the context of God's revealed plans for His people. In doing so, Michael has turned what is often seen as a vague and slippery idea into a concrete and deeply attractive reality."
Minister, St. Helen's Bishopsgate, London
"Michael Lawson is a remarkably talented man. His Christian life and leadership are centred on a thorough engagement with Scripture and here we find his concern to elucidate the central theological theme of the Kingdom of God. His pastoral emphasis remains evident throughout and his style is as accessible as ever . . ."
"All sorts of people refer to 'the kingdom', explain it and seem to expect an enormous amount from it. Michael Lawson alters our entire perspective. He sets us within the kingdom family and succeeds in making the idea of the kingdom real, personal and warmly understandable."
Retired Bishop of Chester, Cheshire
