Christ for President
Christ for President
What if Jesus’ name were on the ballot for U.S. President? That would shake things up a bit, wouldn’t it? Well, the truth is, Jesus doesn’t want to be president of the United States any more than He wanted to be emperor of Rome. He is holding out for something much grander. He will one day be inaugurated as the president or king of all nations. So, he does want us to cast our vote for Him and to join His campaign to build His kingdom. The church makes up His army of staff and volunteers to do just that. What are the platform, the principles and the promises upon which Jesus is running on?
This book will look at four key foundational concepts, one per chapter, from the teaching of Jesus and show how the early Christians of the first 350 years implemented these ideas that resulted in Christianity reaching 56.5 percent of the world population. From one obscure son of a lowly carpenter from Nazareth to 33,882,008 followers! Randy Frazee will probe how church leaders and particularly church planters today must rediscover these critical concepts as they mobilize the church to build Jesus’ Kingdom.
