J.P. Moreland—Christian philosopher, theologian, and apologist—issues a call to recapture the drama and power of kingdom living—to cultivate a revolution of Evangelical life, spirituality, thought, and Spirit-led power.
Drawing insights from the early church, he unpacks three essential ingredients of this revolution:
- Recovery of the Christian mind.
- Renovation of Christian spirituality.
- Restoration of the power of the Holy Spirit.
Western society is in crisis: the result of our culture's embrace of naturalism and postmodernism, and a biblical worldview has been pushed to the margins. Christians have been strongly influenced by these trends, with the result that their personal lives often reflect the surrounding culture more than the way of Christ, and the church's transforming influence on society has waned as a result.
Kingdom Triangle is divided into two major sections:
- The first examines and provides a critique of secular worldviews and shows how they have ushered in the current societal crisis.
- The second lays out a strategy for the Christian community to regain the potency of kingdom life and influence in the world.
Moreland believes that evangelical Christianity can mature and lead the surrounding society out of the meaningless morass it finds itself in with humility and vision. With clear insight, he puts the thoughtful Christian in a position to understand our current cultural struggle and to return to a responsible presentation of "the way of Christ" as not just a way of right living, but also a way of knowledge and meaningful life.
