Denver Journal Publishes Review of Kingdom Triangle

Douglas Groothuis, a respected Professor of Philosophy at Denver Seminary, has published an extensive review of Kingdom Triangle in the recent Denver Seminary Journal.

Click here or here to read the entire review.
If read, pondered, preached, taught, and applied, the teachings of Kingdom Triangle could spark revival, reformation, and reform in the church, as well as in the world at large. This is a triangle that Christians must not ignore.

KT Cited in a WORLD Magazine Article

In the March 22, 2008 issue of WORLD magazine, Moreland's Kingdom Triangle and his co-authored book (with colleague Tim Muehlhoff) The God Conversation (IVP) are mentioned in the "Apologetics Old and New" article.

Speaking of Kingdom Triangle, the article concludes:
It is only within this [Kingdom Triangle] matrix, Moreland argues, that Christian apologetics will have any value toward the kingdom not made with hands. Triangle is a provocative, inspiring, and challenging book, one that, like the other three, brings the old into the new. Whether it and the others succeed is up to the reader—no, the Spirit—to decide.

Comments from CT Judges on Kingdom Triangle

We have received permission to post comments by the CT judges on what they thought of JP's Kingdom Triangle. Here are some of their comments:

"An absolutely necessary message and challenge to believers - adults and students, leaders and followers ... Has the potential to erupt in a long-awaited, much prayed for expression of unity among the followers of Christ in our country."

"[Shows] intelligence, comprehensive reading ... It will be a good seminary text, written by a good scholar."

"Moreland's arguments are interesting and challenging."

Moreland responds to CT Book Award

We asked JP to reflect upon his journey with Kingdom Triangle in light of yesterday's award announcement from Christianity Today:
In the thirty-six months prior to writing Kingdom Triangle, I had around ten prophetic words of knowledge from trusted people from five different states all saying the same thing to me, and part of what they said was that God wanted me to write a book that would bring Charismatic, Third Wave and non-Charismatics together around a broad, unified approach to the Christian life that included Kingdom Power. Well, Kingdom Triangle is that book. As I have said before, I believe it is my most important book to date and I have never felt God's leading in writing a book more than with Kingdom Triangle. The 2008 Christianity Today Book Award for Kingdom Triangle in the category of spirituality is, from my perspective, an evidence of "the effect being greater than the human cause and, thus, requiring God's activity to explain." I am convinced that God is honoring the book because he is pleased with its intent and message. I am humbled to say the least.

Kingdom Triangle Wins Christianity Today Book Award

We are proud to announce that JP Moreland's Kingdom Triangle has been awarded the 2008 Christianity Today Book Award in the category of Spirituality.

According to the online posting,
This year, 49 publishers nominated 359 titles published in 2007. CT editors selected the top books in each category, and then panels of judges — one panel per category — voted. In the end, we chose 10 winners and gave 11 awards of merit to the books that best shed light on people, events, and ideas that shape evangelical life, thought, and mission.

Jamie's story

Last year, Jamie Gillentine, one of the pastors at the Anaheim Vineyard Christian Fellowship (where JP is a member), had a severe diving accident.

Listen to (or download) the talk about his journey and how God brings healing and uses the compassion of the church. (You can also get this talk through the "Vineyard Anaheim" channel in iTunes; search for the "Beautiful News" track).

You may also be encouraged by this video that illustrates the process of his recovery.

Jamie embodies the ideals of the Kingdom Triangle.
