Ep 119: What the Bible Says About God’s Kingdom with Stephen Dempster

Ep 119: What the Bible Says About God’s Kingdom with Stephen Dempster 

In this episode I talk to Dr. Stephen Dempster about his new book ‘The Return of the Kingdom: A Biblical Theology of God’s Reign’, out now on IVP Academic. In this book Dr. Dempster explores the theme of God’s kingdom through the Bible. We look at God’s kingdom purposes in creation, how humans in general and Israel in particular fail to build the kingdom, how the kingdom is ushered in by Jesus, and how God’s kingdom will one day be fully restored. We also discuss how Christians ought to live in light of the Bibles inaugurated eschatology, why many western Christians have ignored the theme of kingdom, and how the kingdom of God shapes our relationship to the kingdoms of men.
