Reimagining the Kingdom: The Generational Development of Liberal Kingdom Theology from Schleiermacher to McLaren

 "In this important guide, Jeremy Bouma explains how many who speak of the Kingdom of God do not mean what Jesus meant by it. If you are one who is attracted to the liberal gospel, this guide might just save your soul." —MICHAEL E. WITTMER, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary 

Recently use of Kingdom language in evangelicalism has markedly increased, and rightly so, as the Kingdom is central to the gospel and teachings of Jesus. Several scholars have noted similarities between this language and Protestant liberalism. Yet they have not significantly explored how liberal theology is impacting evangelical notions of the Kingdom, and consequently the gospel. 

Reimagining the Kingdom traces the development of this language through four generations of liberals—from Schleiermacher to Ritschl, Rauschenbusch, and Tillich—to explore how their liberal language is affecting evangelical theology, as illustrated by progressive evangelical and Emergent Brian McLaren. 

By exploring how theological liberals define the human problem, understand that problem’s solution, and interpret the nature of the One who bore that solution, this book reveals an inextricable link between progressive evangelicalism and Protestant liberalism. 

It is vitally important that evangelicals understand the contours of liberal Kingdom theology to understand how it is affecting how evangelicals are showing and telling the gospel itself.

**3 Emergent Theology Response Books in 1!** Includes best selling books: Reimagining the Kingdom: The Generational Development of Liberal Kingdom Theology from Schleiermacher to McLaren The Gospel of Brian McLaren: A New Kind of Christianity for a Multi-Faith World Reimagining the Christian Faith: Exploring the Emergent Theology of Doug Pagitt, Peter Rollins, Samir Selmanovic, and Brian McLaren On February 8, 2010 pastor and theologian Jeremy Bouma did something he thought he'd never do: He said "Goodbye, Emergent"! Once upon a time he was enamored by the "I-am-not-a-movement-but-a-conversation" known as the Emerging Church after entering a period of faith deconstruction and reconstruction nine years ago. Like many young adults, for the first time he was taking his faith in Jesus Christ seriously and asking a whole lot of questions along the way-which the Emergent Church helped foster and nurture. But then something happened: He came to realize the Emerging Church is a form of Christianity other-than the versions that currently exist but mirror those that have already existed, mainly the false theology of theological liberalism. Understand Emerging Church Theology is a bundle of three books representing his best selling work as a former Emergent insider and historical theologian. He offers it to help empower other interested Christians to respond to the foreign theology of the Emerging Church and do what Jude urges the Church to do: "contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God's holy people." (Jude 3)
