We’re excited to be partnering with Missio Alliance to host a morning of presentations and conversation with Scot McKnight around his newest book, Kingdom Conspiracy: Recovering the Radical Mission of the Local Church.
This event is especially for Chicagoland church and ministry leaders as well as seminary students. With special thanks to Brazos Press, everyone who attends will receive a free copy of the book!
According to Scot McKnight, “kingdom” is the biblical term most misused by Christians today. It has taken on meanings that are completely at odds with what the Bible says. “Kingdom” has become a buzzword for both social justice and redemption so that it has lost its connection with Israel and with the church as a local church.
McKnight defines the biblical concept of kingdom, offering a thorough corrective and vision for the contemporary church. The most important articulation of kingdom was that of Jesus, who contended that the kingdom was in some sense present and in some sense in the future. The apostles talked less about the kingdom and more about the church. McKnight explains that kingdom mission is local church mission and that the present-day fetish with influencing society, culture, and politics distracts us from the mission of God: to build the local church. He also shows how kingdom theology helps to reshape the contemporary missional conversation.
