41lgjuiwdal-_sx346_bo1204203200_Dr. Arno Steen Andreasen, D.Min. 2003, has published a new book, In Pursuit of Kingdom Living. We congratulate him on his most recent publication!

Following is a synopsis of the book which can be found on Amazon at this link.

This book is a manifesto for church life and Christian living. It is a book that will challenge what we believe and how we live. The book wrestles with key passages in the Bible and offers principles for a just spirituality.

The book comes out of practice and reflection. Arno has been training leaders, pastors and missionaries for many years combined with his experience as a church leader, a local pastor and being the overseer of an international network of churches.

The book offers an alternative to a superficial faith that leads to bog standard answers. Instead, Arno encourages us all to have a good look at the context of each passage and to evaluate it in the light of the life and ministry of Jesus. Church life as well as Christian living becomes life transforming when what we believe and what we do look and sound like Jesus.
