The work of the Kingdom of God cannot continue in the world without the church! In The Kingdom Net, I spent a couple of chapters discussing the role of the church in God’s Kingdom. Inspired by a conversation I had a few years ago with the eminent theologian Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, the book discusses the four marks of the church–its oneness, holiness, catholicity, and apostolicity.
Dr. Kärkkäinen, Professor of Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary (http://www.fuller.edu/academics/faculty/veli-matti-karkkainen.aspx) has produced some of the most comprehensive summaries of Christian theology ever published in a multi-volume “theological mapping” project. One of the world’s best-read and most prolific theologians, he has a great deal to teach us!
In some of my future postings on this blog, I plan to share a series of audios and videos and special features that will reward readers of the book for following the blog and inspire readers of the blog to order the book. About 78 people are mentioned by name or anonymously in The Kingdom Net, so I will interview many of them to add relevant content here that does not appear in the book. I don’t want to sell you a book and then end the relationship–I want to help you become a world-class Kingdom Networker.
In the attached audio file, the first of four audio segments, I share in greater detail my conversation with Dr. Karkkainen. I know you will learn important and USEFUL things about the Church, as I did. Just click on the HTMLS button below and enjoy!
