"When Jesus was on earth, He painted a radical vision for His followers of an unseen reality. He called it 'the kingdom of God.' Even here, Jesus said - in the harshness and mess of earth - His kingdom is the way things really are. His announcement was nothing less than revolutionary, yet His followers were not quick to pick up on it. They longed for another world - a world without injustice or oppression or poverty. But Jesus said that His kingdom was already happening all around them, through them, and in them. This Beautiful Mess explores what happens when we view our lives through the lens of God's kingdom. We see the beauty of Jesus' reign breaking into the mess of our broken world. We see treasure hidden all around us. We begin to grasp our exciting part in bringing about personal and social transformation for His glory. Come experience a paradigm-shifting journey into the beauty of our King, and the beautiful mess that is His kingdom"--Page [4] of cover

Already Not Yet When Jesus announced, "the kingdom of God is at hand," what did He mean' Uncover the reality of the kingdom of God and what it might look like if followers of Christ practiced its in-breaking presence. What happens when we view life through the lens of the kingdom' How does the beauty of Jesus' reign break into the mess of our broken lives and world' What if we lived as though a world other than this one was here today' This Beautiful Mess launches a paradigm-shifting journey inviting us to experience the kingdom of God in the ordinary miracle of our everyday lives. "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, hesold all he had and bought that field." 'Matthew 13:44 Jesus' sayings about the kingdom of God just might be the most overlooked of his teachings. Yet the Good News of the kingdom'a treasure beyond price'was what he came to preach. It's time to ask: -What is the kingdom Jesus talked about' -Could it be already here, hidden from sight' If so, where is it' -How can I be a part of it' A new generation is tuning in to the teachings of Jesus and to their revolutionary implications. Could it be that living under Christ's reign is not merely a future vision but a present reality' Rick McKinley's exploration is fresh, accessible, and timely. With careful attention to historical texts, he unveils new understandings of authentic personal and social transformation. The time is now. Your opportunity is here. In the mess of everyday life, you can live in the beautiful presence of the kingdom. Story Behind the Book "When we started Imago Dei Community, it was with a passion to be people who live in love with Jesus and live out the values of His kingdom in our city. But we had no idea how to do that. God let us stumble into grace and discover the wide-open plains of His kingdom. This has ruined us in the best way possible. Because once you taste untamed life in the kingdom, you will never go back to the sterile hallways of religion. The beautiful, transforming grace of Christ shows up in the messiness of life and the kingdom breaks in as a beautiful mess."'Rick McKinley
