The "culture war" is heating up. At issue are sexual behaviors, family values, educational priorities, the environment, and much more.

Mounting attacks on biblical ideals accentuate the need for a new strategy among Christians. While more and more seek to advance God's kingdom through social and political action, such worthy efforts are powerless if the church abandons its central role and mission.

What is the kingdom of God? And what must the church be and do to see that the kingdom come in greater power? Peter J. Leithart answers those questions with discernment and unwavering commitment to biblical priorities. Highlighting the spiritual warfare behind the "cultural war," he calls us to a deeper appreciation of corporate worship, church discipline, the Word and sacraments, and prayer.
