Scenes of the Kingdom is a book that provides background on the kingdom of God. It examines the royal titles used in the gospels to describe Jesus. It also looks at several of the passages where Jesus talks about the kingdom.
I have had the opportunity to teach in a variety of settings around the world in the past several years. I have also taken my campus community on mission to Argentina. Sometimes these trips are supported, other times I have to raise support for my travel. I am publishing this book for the purpose of having funds available when these opportunities arise. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this book will go into future travels where I am teaching or traveling with Missio Dei or the Missouri Baptist Convention. Any money that I do not use for these purposes will go into the general ministry fund of Missio Dei.
I am offering this book in two forms. You can purchase a physical copy of the book or you can choose an e-book. For the e-book, you can choose .pdf, .epub or .mobi format for the e-reader of your choice.
If you would like to order online, please visit this site:
I will mail you a copy of your book through the USPS or email the e-book file.
The paperback book is $15.00 (plus shipping). My goal is to make $10 over cost of printing (it cost about $4.50 per book). The e-book is $10.
If you would like to pay by check, please make your check out to Stonebridge Community Church (they are the overseers of our campus community) and send it to
3006 Crabapple Ln
Columbia, MO 65203
Of course, you can buy it off of me personally as well. I'll bring it to you if I'm making a trip near where you are going to be.
