Richard Bewes is the author of several beloved books of faith including Talking About Prayer, 150 Pocket Thoughts, and The Goodnight Book. Bewes was the rector of All Souls Church in the centre of London from 1983 until his retirement in 2004. In 2005 he was awarded an OBE for his services to the Church of England.Review:
"In today's changing world, where nations rise and fall, leaders come and go, thrones are occupied and emptied, treaties are made and broken, and life itself seems so fragile, The Stone that became a Mountain is the telescope that brings into focus the unchanging, transcending kingdom of God. Well done, Richard Bewes!" (Anne Graham Lotz ~ Author, Evangelist and daughter of Billy & Ruth Graham)
"The subtitle says it all: "Getting it RIGHT about the Kingdom of God". Bewes provides a popular exposition of the Bible's teaching on the vital theme of the Kingdom (or Reign) of God. Beginning with Daniel's vision of the stone cut out by the hand of God, which fills the whole earth, Bewes traces the unfolding of the Kingdom through to the glorious consummation depicted at the end of Revelation. Rightly the focus is on the King, Christ crucified and risen in victory. Bewes writes in a very readable style, with plenty of illustration and application, and this short book will give readers a good introduction to the "big picture" of God's redemptive purpose worked out through King Jesus." (David McKay ~ Professor of Systematic Theology, Ethics and Apologetics, Reformed Theological College, Belfast, Northern Ireland)
"The Kingdom of God is a non negotiable in Christian understanding. Have you grasped it? Nothing else so clearly shapes Christian thinking. This is the book - laced with vivid illustration - to explain this essential Christian truth." (Rico Tice ~ Author, Christianity Explored & Associate Minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London)
