Already Not Yet. 

When Jesus announced, "the kingdom of God is at hand," what did He mean? Uncover the reality of the kingdom of God and what it might look like if followers of Christ practiced its in-breaking presence. What happens when we view life through the lens of the kingdom? How does the beauty of Jesus' reign break into the mess of our broken lives and world? What if we lived as though a world other than this one was here today? "This Beautiful Mess" launches a paradigm-shifting journey inviting us to experience the kingdom of God in the ordinary miracle of our everyday lives. 

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he...sold all he had and bought that field." --Matthew 13:44 

Jesus' sayings about the kingdom of God just might be the most overlooked of his teachings. Yet the Good News of the kingdom--a treasure beyond price--was what he came to preach. 
It's time to ask: 
"-What is the kingdom Jesus talked about? "
"-Could it be already here, hidden from sight? If so, where is it? "
"-How can I be a part of it? " 
A new generation is tuning in to the teachings of Jesus and to their revolutionary implications. Could it be that living under Christ's reign is not merely a future vision but a present reality? 
Rick McKinley's exploration is fresh, accessible, and timely. With careful attention to historical texts, he unveils new understandings of authentic personal and social transformation. The time is now. Your opportunity is here. In the mess of everyday life, you can live in the beautiful presence of the kingdom.
