These audio lectures are a unique learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook’s direct narration of a book’s text, Kingdom of God: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources. In the last hundred and fifty years the kingdom of God has emerged as one of the most important topics in theology, New Testament studies, and the life of the church. But what exactly is the kingdom of God? What does it mean for the people of God and what does it mean for how they live in the world? In The Kingdom of God: Audio Lectures, Nicholas Perrin explores this dominant biblical metaphor, one that is paradoxically the meta-center and the mystery in Jesus’ proclamation. After surveying interpretations by figures from Albrecht Ritschl to N. T. Wright, Perrin examines the “what, who, and how” questions of the kingdom. In these sweepingly comprehensive lectures, Perrin contends that the kingdom is inaugurated in Jesus’ earthly ministry, but its final development awaits later events in history. In between the times, the people of God are called to participate in the reign of God by living out the distinct kingdom ethic through hope, forgiveness, love, and prayer. XXX. The Kingdom of God: Audio Lectures, taught by Nicholas Perrin, explore the contours of the kingdom by answering the important ‘what,’ ‘who,’ and ‘how’ questions. This comprehensive study brings together careful exegesis of the Old and New Testaments with thoughtful attention to how the kingdom ethic applies to God’s people today.
