Carl Henry launched an Evangelical Renaissance and gave intellectual credibility for Evangelical social endeavors Russell Moore continues that legacyMoore argues that Evangelicalism for having all the right theology has failed to put that into practice Here he is following Carl Henry's Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism He critiues both Reformed and Dispensational thinkers the reviewer is Reformed Moore argues for the Kingdom of Christ as a legitimate fulcrum for making social and political moves without losing the need for personal regeneration Dispensational thinkers argues Moore make kingdom preaching irrelevant because it preaches an earthly future kingdom which has no relevance to the Church Covenant theologians on the other hand preach a kingdom that is now but when pressed end up with a spiritual heavenly kingdom which again has no relevance for the churchMoore argues to the contrary that the Kingdom is now has earthly ramifications and presently finds its culmination in Christ Kingdom language for Moore is warfare language He follows much of Kuyper in arguing that Christ claims are binding on the whole order He follows Ridderbos in positing a cosmic redemption If sin is cosmic in its reach so is redemption Well saidCriticisms and Personal Comments1 Moore comes from a premillennial background He rightly critiues Amillennialism as being neo platonic His interpretation of Isaiah 6520 ends most discussions of amillennialism However it is not clear how his interpretation of Isaiah 6520 actually proves historical premillennialism and not postmillennialism2 He critiues theonomy when he should actually be critiuing Gary North3 The book is endnoted not footnoted The actual text is less than 200 pages I read it in about a dayConclusionThis book promises much and leaves the reader wrestling with tough issues The current reviewer is excited that Southern Baptists are getting involved with kingdom issues in a way that does not denigrate either the gospel or modern culture One hopes that many conservative Presbyterians will take note Aside from a few doctrinal criticisms the current reviewer recommends this book without ualificationsEdit I change my above criticism Moore cogently defends premil and thus I retract 1

I began reading The Kingdom of Christ TKoC about two years ago and was throughly enjoying the book at the time but for some reason that I can no longer remember I failed to finish it in its entirety Currently however I am in one of those modes where I 19m enthralled by reading learning and synthesizing so I just finished rereading the entire bookThe Kingdom of Christ is a deeply theological book that is not an easy read but is well worth the endeavor One of the reasons that this is a hard read is due to the length of the chapters The entire book is only five chapters long actually four chapters because the fifth chapter is only a brief conclusion The four main chapters are lengthy and technical which makes reading individual chapters a little at a time a bad idea because it 19s hard to reenter the flow of author 19s thought if your reading has paused for a significant amount of time The book also assumes that its readers have a basic understanding of things like covenant theology dispensational theology the Kingdom of God the social gospel and the evangelical movement These issues the length of chapters technicality of the language and assumed pre knowledge of the reader are the only real negatives of the book And honestly these aren 19t negatives as much as they are just factors that narrow the book 19s audience And let 19s be honest not every book is for every personIn TKoC Moore does an unparalleled job of tracing the theological concept of the 1CKingdom of God 1D as it has evolved in both the dispensational and covenantal theological camps In each chapter Moore unpacks how 1CKingdom of God 1D theological construct has had profound implications on eschatology soteriology and ecclesiology In all of these theological areas covenantal and dispensational camps have developed wider agreement due to a deeper understanding of Bible 19s teaching about the Kingdom of God Moore 19s intent is to uestion the social and political ramifications of evangelical action within the public sphere based on this wider theological agreement The book asserts that modern evangelicalism 19s discussion of social and political action began with the publication of Carl F Henry 19s The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism In chapter one Moore delves into Henry 19s writings and then traces theological history to the current time According to Moore 19s conclusion though larger evangelicalism now agrees wholeheartedly on 1CKingdom of God 1D theology it now faces larger theological disagreements on perhaps even primary issues such as epistemology inerrancy and the sovereignty of God This is evidenced by the increasing influence of movements such as evangelical feminism and open theismI walked away from TKoC with a much deeper understanding of covenantal theology dispensational theology the writings of Carl F Henry the Bible 19s teaching about the Kingdom of God and the mission of the church in society This book is profoundly relevant to the uestions know being addressed by the modern church In many ways the emerging church movement is repeating the mistakes of the social gospel liberals of the 1960 19s This is in part a reaction to the unhealthy politicization of Christianity by the Religious Right Church leaders need to continually assess how to be the 1Ccity on the hill 1D that Jesus talked about in the Sermon on the Mount TKoC is an important read in that assessment Having read TKoC I yearn for a practical book dealing with how churches can be salt and light in the public sphere that takes into account Moore 19s research but is geared to a larger audience I would love to hear any suggestions about books of this nature
