Right in the middle of the chaos and division, heartache and anxiety, we are faced with the seemingly impossible words of Jesus—that He came to give us life to the fullest.
But what do you do when this “life to the fullest” feels so far away? What do you do when the deepest longing of your soul groans for more than what you are experiencing? If there is “life to the fullest,” how do we even begin to find it, and then how do we begin to extend it to others?
In his most poetic and thought-provoking work to date, Brandon Andress makes the surprising discovery that, even in the heartache, the hostility, the division, the violence, and the oppression, experiencing “life to the fullest,” a life of shalom, is not just possible, it can be our present reality. But in order to discover it, we must learn how to see and live differently—moment by moment—for the transformation of our lives, our families, our relationships, and our communities.
Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is like a treasure buried in a
desolate field that one would sell all of his possessions to attain. Yet the
shocking reality is that this treasure remains buried as the average
Christian and Church are sadly unaware of what the Kingdom of God is
or why it even matters.
In his revealing first work, Brandon Andress writes that while the Christian and the Church continue to chase their tails in pursuit of an identity and purpose in the world, it is ultimately the unearthing of the Kingdom of God that will transform the Church and change the world. While walking simplistically through the parables of Jesus to get a better understanding of Kingdom of God, this book will also convince and inspire you and your Church to be the means through which the Kingdom of God breaks into the world in power.
