Professor Bob Stewart's (NOBTS) endorsement of HEAVEN ON EARTH
"If the proclamation of the Kingdom of God was Jesus’ central message
(and it was) then shouldn’t Christians today be concerned to understand
and teach it? In Heaven on Earth Alan Streett explains in an
understandable way, without being either shallow or needlessly
technical, the meaning of “God’s Kingdom” in its original context, i.e.,
how Jesus, Paul, and other early Christians—and their
adversaries—understood talk about God’s Kingdom.
"But that is
not all. Streett also declares the significance of God’s Kingdom for
Christians today. Jesus’ vision of God’s kingdom was of world-changing
significance in the first-century—and it still is in the twenty-first
century. Whether you agree with Streett or not, you need to read this
book!" Robert B. Stewart Professor of Philosophy and Theology Greer-Heard Professor of Faith and Culture New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
