College Student Blogger Gets Kingdom Triangle

Curtis, a college student blogger (here), understands the significance of JP's Kingdom Triangle:
Good book. Especially encouraging to hear from man with his mind to be really implore his readers (who tend to come from more cessassionist backgrounds) to search out the supernatural especially with regards to the greater gifts...

It's also especially helpful to bring balance because sometimes peoples' pendulum's on these things goes too far one way or the other. I know mine did when first exposed the more spiritual side of things coming from my background where we did not talk about the Holy Spirit..

Moreland Addresses Kingdom Triangle Themes to Apologetics Students

La Mirada, CA - Every year, graduate students in apologetics come from around the country in order to congregate at Biola University. These graduate students do not fit your typical profile: many of them are full-time career professionals with families, often established in their life vocations, but wanting to enrich their life by graduate work in Christian apologetics.

With these students, JP lectured on the meaning and importance of the reality of the Kingdom of God for apologetics work:

I defined the Kingdom as the realm within which God's will is carried out (the laws of nature and the hearts of those yielded to the King). I argued that the purpose of history is to bring honor to God by the progressive formation of a voluntary community of people, under the King, who exhibit the relations that obtain among the members of the Trinity and who co-labor with God forever to produce goodness, truth and beauty. I claimed that this is the meaning of our own individual lives. I then drew out the power aspect of the Kingdom and talked about healing prayer. Many came to me with the report that they had already read Kingdom Triangle with great benefit. Several students got copies. I am observing that the book is having precisely the sort of transformational influence on readers I had hoped.
