New Book: The Gospel of the Kingdom.

I got my last book from the amazon gift card I received for my birthday today.

George Eldon Ladd. The Gospel of the Kingdom: Scriptural Studies in the Kingdom of God. Eerdmans, 1959.

That this book is still in print says a lot of its contents and its author. It is an important book and still makes it on pre-reading list for various doctoral programs around the country and probably around the world. The Kingdom of God is an integral concept in Biblical Studies and Gordon Fee is credited as having once said something to the effect of “If you misunderstand the nature of the Kingdom of God you will risk misunderstanding the nature of the Christian faith.” I have know about this book a while and just could not put it off any longer.
