Kingdom Come Book Review (Tyndale Blog Network)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I read Kingdom Come: Why We Must Give Up Our Obsession with Fixing the Churchand What We Should Do Instead, in exchange for honest review from Tyndale Blog Network. The book was written by Reggie McNeal.

The book focuses on how churches need to focus on building the kingdom of God, versus building the church. McNeal says some churches focus on building themselves up versus building up the community. The kingdom of God is bigger than just the church, even though the church is a part of the kingdom. The kingdom is eternal while physical churches are temporary.

The church should want more than just membership and more than just wanting people to get saved. There is more to the kingdom than this.

McNeal also discussed how Jesus helped the poor and disadvantaged. The church is supposed to help those who are down and out. Help those, who are hurt.

Focusing on the kingdom brings transformation into individuals and into churches.

You can purchase the book in paperback and kindle editions.
