The Kingdom of God: Selected Bibliography

Why Books?
It is important to review books to see how scholars have interpreted the text of Scripture on a given subject as God has directed them. The following list is in alphabetical order by the author's last name. If you have only time or energy to read one of these books, I would recommend that you choose one written by the late Dr. George E. Ladd. Have fun!
