Slow Kingdom Coming: Practices for Doing Justice, Loving Mercy and Walking Humbly in the World
By Kent Annan (IVP Books)
Slow Kingdom Coming is an honest invitation to the lifelong kingdom posture of loving the world through mercy and justice. Kent Annan’s contribution in this category is timely, as the “justice movement” in the U.S. is beginning to turn a corner. We are moving from an emphasis on heroines and heroes to understanding that lasting change and impact is, indeed, a slow and steady walk in the same direction.
Incredibly accessible, Slow Kingdom Coming is relevant for newcomers to the “justice journey” as well as those who lead the largest and most effective nonprofits and NGOs of our day.
