Heaven on Earth  :  Experiencing the Kingdom of God in the Here and Now

   
Author: R. Alan Streett 

The future hope of heaven is pulled into the here-and-now in this illuminating description of the kingdom of God.

Popular teacher and author R. Alan Streett exposes half-truths about the kingdom that many believers have unwittingly accepted. He contrasts these with the testimony of Scripture:

  • Jesus inaugurated the kingdom of God on the earth—it has already begun. As ambassadors of the kingdom, we are to fulfill our responsibilities and enjoy its benefits here and now.
  • Salvation does not culminate with the soul escaping the body and living forever in heaven. Our bodies will eventually be transformed, and we will live with God on a restored earth.
  • The church is like an embassy of heaven in a foreign country. In their life together, believers demonstrate kingdom realities to the world.

Readers will find hope and direction in this fresh presentation of the historic teaching on the kingdom.

Review:   

“In a broad sweep of biblical history from Genesis to Revelation, Dr. R. Alan Streett reminds the church that the Gospel of the Kingdom of God is not about leaving earth to go to heaven, but is about bringing heaven down to earth. May followers of Jesus everywhere read this book and wake up to the reality of the Kingdom of God in our day-to-day lives.”
Jeremy Myers, TillHeComes.org


“Good biblical scholarship always needs clear-headed and careful writers who can help the church grasp the core essentials of the gospel of the kingdom. Alan Streett has written a rare book, combining good scholarship with a compelling and clear style that allows him to speak powerfully to a wide audience. There is gold in this hill—search and find. I am quite sure your efforts will be rewarded.”
John H. Armstrong, president, ACT 3 Network


“Alan Streett has written a very readable theology of the kingdom of God for everyman (to borrow from N.T. Wright's series). But it is more than a theology, for it is the grand narrative of God's relationship to the world and humanity told in a fascinating manner without any mincing of words when it comes to bringing out its practical implications. It is at a length and in a style that all can read (with notes for scholars), so I can only hope that as many as can get their hands on it will indeed ‘take up and read.’ At the end of the work one wants to stand and sing the ‘Hallelujah Chorus.’”
Peter Davids, visiting professor of Christianity, Houston Baptist University


“Since Jesus spoke so often of the kingdom, shouldn't we? I heartily commend Alan's contribution to this important conversation about one of the Bible's often overlooked themes, the kingdom of God. Read it and be challenged.”
Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research, author of Subversive Kingdom


“Alan Streett has come upon a discovery that is revolutionizing his understanding of the Bible, the gospel, and the Christian life. You feel his exhilaration in every chapter as he grapples deeply with Jesus' core message—not simply about how to get your soul to heaven when you die, but how God's dreams for planet earth can come true, beginning with you, and catching all of us up in God's transforming mission. This is a courageous work that will stimulate needed conversations about the Bible and the gospel, especially in Baptist and Evangelical circles. Highly recommended.”
Brian D. McLaren, author and speaker
