Christ will return when the church has accomplished her task of taking the Gospel to the entire world.

Best book, pound-for-pound, on the Kingdom of God that I’ve ever found. This question continues to be the driving gsopel for many Christians. So, Ladd believes that the Gospel will make it to every tribe tongue and nation mingdom he does not think that it will accomplish much beyond that. We are not rosy optimists, expecting the Gospel to conquer the world and establish the Kingdom of God. They were the professional religious people of their day and this statement of Jesus would have caused great panic in the hearts of his hearers.

The Church is the community of the Kingdom of God and is to press the struggle against satanic evil in the world. When we finish the task of world evangelism, then the Lord will return.


On the third hand, I realize as I write this how tribal such debates are – does anyone outside Christian circles really care? Ladd asks and answers the question: With the model of “the already and not yet” Ladd brilliantly exegetes the Scriptures to show how God sovereignly works through redemptive history, how Christ and His church are victorious, the defeat of sin and Satan and death, the eschatological evangelization of the world, and how we are now today in this current Age experiencing the blessings of the Kingdom and of the Age to Come, and yet how we are awaiting its full consummation when Christ returns victoriously in glory.
