Abstract:

Why bother with the church when the world seems to be going up in smoke? In our tumultous world, where the major issue confronting us seems to be the very survival of humanity, is it worthwhile even to think about the church? It is not only worthwhile, says the author of this book, it is imperative. Kingdom Come! examines the crucial role of the church in a tumultuous contemporary world. The church, says Dr. Paul, is given to the world. Everything it does bears on humanity, and it has no immunity from God's judgments on the world. One urgent task of the church, then, is to proclaim to the world that there is still judgment -- a judgment that man can cannot escape merely by eliminating its finality from his consciousness. - Back cover.
