    Four and a half stars! The Kingdom of God is something I have always wondered about. While this book was a good introduction to the concept it didn’t go in depth enough for my taste. But that was the goal of the author, not go too deep but go deep enough. So I will keep reading on this

    Very accessible treatment of the kingdom. It will stir your affections for Jesus and his way and give you hope for the unfolding of his kingdom.

    Seek First is a well rounded series of reflections on the life in Christ. I can commend it highly by noting that it reminds me of C.S Lewis' classic The Weight Of Glory. Dr Jeremy Treat, a young Pastor in L.A, pilots us down pleasant pathways opened up by the in-breaking of Isho's Kingdom. In an age of distraction, everyone is looking for something that gives purpose and perspective on life. An earlier American Pastor, Eugene Peterson, called for a long obedience in the same direction. Jeremy Treat follows the same road of discipleship. He notes correctly that Jesus says it is the kingdom of God that is central and seeks to apply that practically in a twenty first century urban American context. Whilst still considering the global church and reflecting helpfully on the health of The Faith throughout the world and across the generations. Pastor Treat recognizes that the kingdom is not just another religious idea. Rather he acknowledges, God's loving reign brings clarity and coherence to all of life - identity, work, play, relationships, justice, character - in a way that is profound and practical in equal measure. There are some little gems of particular import today. After lamenting the common state of inept fathers, and even worse the pervasive problem of fatherlessness, he points to God as the antidote: The father to the fatherless, who offers a real presence and a standard to live up to. If only we would listen. True fatherhood must be balanced: Intimacy and reverence are the ways of a loving father.'' Let us listen to Treat, Voddie Baucham Jr and others who remind us of the truth of Scripture about such important issues.

    An accessible, pastoral, big picture look at theology and the Christian life - God's kingdom as God's reign through God's people over God's place. A nice little moment of orientation at the start of a new year.

    WRECKED. With each turn of the page I was left with a sweet conviction that leads to repentance or a reminder of the joy found only in the Lord. I have read several non-fiction Christian books, but this one is different. I want to read it over and over again.

  6. says:

    This is a wonderful book that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    This is a helpful look at what the kingdom of God means and why it matters. It's short, it's witty, it's compelling, it's powerful.

    Tolle lege.

    I enjoyed Seek First ... Jeremy Treat has a compelling writing style, accessible combination of theology, stories, and application.

  8. says:

    Well written and I'm sure it's helped a lot of people, but far more anecdotal than I usually prefer. Would recommend it for people just beginning to try and understand the kingdom.

  9. says:

    As far as I know, this is the only popular level book on what it means to put Jesus’ words, “Seek first the kingdom of God,” into practice. Well done, and much needed.

    This book has a lot of good principles in it and motivates regarding social justice. A lot of it feels like things I already know but are good reminders.
