To celebrate his seventieth birthday, Kingdom Come has gathered reflections from fellow theologians, popular authors, poets, and practitioners in honour of Rev. Dr. Jonathan Wilson. Dr. Wilson is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow with IBTS and we are delighted to see so many contributions from our community.
“Jonathan Wilson has a passion for the reality of God’s presence and power being experienced among people now. This collection of 42 essays from people, ranging from well known scholars to unheralded servants of Jesus Christ, celebrates what that means. A kaleidoscopic celebration that will arrest and excite all who long for God’s Kingdom to come the more!” - Rev. Dr. Jim Purves
