This book focuses on the Msisio Dei and the promise of the kingdom of God as the center of the message of all scripture. The book is divided into ten chapters that fall into three parts: the evangelization and mission of God in the Old Testament; the New Testament; and a review of the theology of the kingdom of God by Karl Barth, Paul Tillich, Wolfhard Pannenberg, Leonardo Boﬀ, and Mortimer Arias. After reviewing the Old and New Testaments and modern theologians, the work concludes with the author’s personal thoughts and a holistic theology of evangelization and God’s mission for the church in the twenty-first century.
