This book profoundly disturbed me. It brought to light many things within myself that I had known but managed to never directly addressed.

I am a avid fan of J.P. Moreland, and as such there was not much in this book that I was not already familiar with, including many of the examples. Around pg 130 or so the stuff that distinguishes this book as different from his others crops up. There is one page in that book that I find to be worth the price of the book alone. And that is in distinguishing between what one says they believe and on the surface claims to believe, with what they actually believe. It helped me to realize that for all practical purposes I had been living like a functional deist.

I don't know what to do with some of the latter chapters and it will require a lot of reflection, but I think this is also one of the books greatest strengths, in putting something in front of virtually everyone that will challenge them to analyze themselves, and where they are at with God.

Another major strength of this book is in it's use of practicallity. It's fine to say one should do this or that, but without any clear recommendation of how to go about doing this or that. J.P. gives advice, his own guidelines, and recommended reading to either show one how to do ... or to study furthur to decide wether or not one should do ... .

It's a great book well worth the money, even for a guy who's read most of his books and gotten most of his lectures from the Veritas forum and Stand To Reason. This book can be a wonderful tool for furthur reflection upon what a life lived for Christ should be like, and thus how your life for Christ should be lived.

Format: Hardcover
We're seven years into the decade. It's possible to make that sort of claim. While Nancy Pearcey's Total Truth was leading the pack for the distinction of most important book published in the 00s, after reading Dr. Moreland's masterful new work The Kingdom Triangle, I'm calling the race for him.

After all, when JP Moreland-yes, the guy who wrote the book on the life of the Christian mind-says ridiculous things like, The Kingdom Triangle is "the single best and most important book I have ever written" and "This is the book I've been waiting all my life to write," we should take note. He's written a lot of books, and all of them are worth reading.

I should offer a disclosure, though. You'd expect to hear me to say that I got the book for free. I didn't. I had to buy it. While it's not available from bookstores until June 1st (pre-orders help sales, apparently!), Torrey Honors sold some advance copies. But though I didn't get the book for free, I have met Dr. Moreland, and have an immense amount of admiration for the guy. He doesn't know it, but he's indirectly responsible for me marrying my wife (a story for another post), which is the only decent thing I've done in my life to date. But none of that would change my assessment of this book a bit.

The Kingdom Triangle is clear, provocative and informative. Dr. Moreland manages to attain that difficult but essential balance between the practical and the theoretical, a skill that I admire and lack. It is, as a result, a difficult book to read in that his brief recommendations for how to change remove every excuse to remain stagnant that we might otherwise muster.

Yet Dr. Moreland is practical without being preachy.

22 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Phillip H. Steiger VINE VOICE on July 10, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book on at least two levels. First of all, it is an accurate and thoughtful critique of two of the most prevalent cultural trends in our world today: naturalism and postmodernism. Secondly, it is a practical and straightforward call to action and engagement for Christians caught up in this particular culture. As a result of these two emphases, Moreland provides a clear picture of what needs to be critiqued and engaged, and how to go about it.

In the first section, his call is for a return to the basics of what it means to know something. Naturalism has too narrowly defined knowledge (scientific knowledge only), and postmodernism has jettisoned it altogether (we can know nothing or nearly nothing with certainty). Moreland associates biblical fidelity with a commitment to a form of correspondence theory about knowledge, and argues that part of the pastoral job of the church is to engage the Christian culture and the culture at large with this fundamental committment in mind.

In the second section, he calls for the recovery of the Christian's mind and soul, and the Spirit's power in the church. Some of the negative criticisms have not dealt with Moreland's arguments for the activity of Spirit in our age, and too quickly dismiss modern-day spiritual formation writers such as Dallas Willard and Richard Foster. The fact that many in the emergent movement like their writings does not make either one of them emergent.

No doubt Moreland's call for the present and miraculous activity of the Spirit in today's church will be controversial in some circles, but it is overreaching to dismiss the book's argument based on that alone. I happen to believe it is an accurate argument, one the church needs to hear, and a crucial part of his work.

The Kingdom Triangle is a great call to action for the American church.
