Kingdom and Country: Following Jesus in the Land that You Love edited by Angie Ward – Book Review

0926220902

As a pastor, Kingdom and Country: Following Jesus in the Land that You Love is a book that resonates with the social and political tension found inside and outside the church. Unfortunately, the dividing lines have been drawn and the conversations have ceased to be cordial. Now, this might be painting with broad strokes, but it’s the reality that many of us have faced throughout the past few years.

Angie Ward and contributors do the hard work of identifying some of the major issues that are running rampant through our culture and presenting ways we can amicably work through it together. As you read, you’ll find yourself challenged to step outside your comfort zones, break down walls that separate, and seek to walk in the way of Jesus.

I must say, you might not agree with everything (nor should you), but this book will certainly help you discover that it’s possible for us all to begin “following Jesus in the land that we love” without sacrificing loving (and interacting with) our neighbors.
