Living Out The Kingdom While Living In The Empire
Bible Lessons From The 2007 Fgc Gathering
BY CHRISTOPHER SAMMOND
Christopher Sammond draws on the book of Esther to contrast relationships and intrigue in the Empire with Jesus' New Testament teachings about life in the Kingdom. He shows how easy it is to name the "other" and also to become "other" within the hierarchy of the "empires," large and small, which we create today; and, he calls us to live into the Kingdom, the blessed community where justice and love are intertwined. Christopher Sammond's honesty, biblical scholarship, spiritual witness, and sense of humor bring life to this study.
