Yet I have become accustomed though never unfeeling to their occurrence, because I know that we live in a highly breakable, highly shakable world. While their impact may differ upon each of us, we all experience these kinds of things. None of us, no matter how much we may have seen or been through, is shock-proof. Even though things rattle and rupture around us, there comes stability—not because of anything in our own being but because of something steadfast that is flowed into our lives by the promise and power of God. The devastating upheavals taking place in our world today underscore how critical it is for each of us to receive and experience His unshakable Kingdom for ourselves. It begins with new life in Christ, without which, Jesus says, we cannot enter the Kingdom of God John 3.

November 01, I started this book on my trip to Europe in May. I thought for sure I would read it on the 10 hour plane flight, cruising down European rivers, and on the flight back; but NO!
There were too many great movies on the plane that I really wanted to see, and I had too much fun touring European cities and talking to interesting people on the boat to read. I wish I had not taken it with me and just stuck with shorter books on my Kindle if I were desperate and I never was! So, it sat in my "TBR" too be read pile for too long until I had a stack of seven books to read, and this is the last of the seven! It is one that needs to be read in small chunks and savored. Prepare to have your spiritual brain stretched!
I also recommend his book, The Christ of the Indian Road. Of the two books, The Christ of the Indian Road is a much easier and shorter read. But both are excellent! I wish I could have met E. Stanley Jones. He was a contemporary of Ghandi. How cool is that? This will probably not be the last book I read by this great and godly man!

Jones lays out a compelling, narrative driven argument for why the Kingdom of God, which Jesus primarily preached about, is essential to a holistic understanding of Christianity and therefore life. The Kingdom of God is written into the fabric of the universe, our very beings, yet what do we know about it? Jones will tell you, if you have the time. Not only do I encourage everyone to read this book, but I will most likely read it again.
