Lisa Sharon Harper’s “The Very Good Gospel” is witty, humorous, and on point. Harper makes a case for the Kingdom of God, arguing for the restoration to the created order rather than a vision of a disembodied heaven. The good news isn’t for someday. It isn’t for “after death.” The good news is for now. The good news is shalom.
This isn’t anything groundbreaking or new, but it is very well expressed, and highly accessible. It would make a great small group study. I will definitely recommend it in the future.
I received an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for this review.
