Reorienting our Mission to the Kingdom of Christ
A Sermon on Matthew 11
In a time when we hear and read so many headlines about tragedies in the name of religion we might be tempted to wonder where we are in the mission of God and how we are to address these global problems. Michael Horton provides a “you are here” map for reorienting our place in the history of redemption and avoiding the “mission-creep” that could distract us from the proclamation of the gospel of the kingdom. Treating the confusion of disciples of John the Baptist concerning Christ, Horton traces the unexpected unfolding of Christ’s kingdom and emphasizes the delivering power of gospel of Christ.
Dr. Horton has taught apologetics and theology at Westminster Seminary California since 1998. Also host of the White Horse Inn (a weekly broadcast) and editor-in-chief of Modern Reformation magazine, he has written many books, including The Christian Faith: A Systematic Theology for Pilgrims on the Way. Receiving degrees from Biola University, Westminster California, and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford and the University of Coventry, and completed a two-year post-doctoral research fellowship at Yale University.
