Summary

Life is messy and rarely simple.

 
There are times of victory when things seem to be going really well and times of struggle when things seem to be falling apart. The way we process these ups and downs of life is extremely important as it sets the tone for everything in our lives. 

 
Kingdom Theology provides a worldview that allows us to embrace the tension in which we live. It is a worldview based upon the central message of Jesus that the kingdom of God has come, is coming, will be coming soon, and is delayed. 

 
Written in an easy to read conversational tone, Joshua Hopping’s book, The Here and Not Yet, seeks to develop a scriptural framework for Kingdom Theology before exploring how this worldview changes the way we live. In holding the tensions of life together, we are better able to respond to the challenges of life while following the lead of our king and savior, Jesus of Nazareth.

    Hero • Martyr • PoetThe                 inspiring story of a remarkable life cut short.              
    “I don’t think Hannah wanted                 to die for the sake of having her memory exalted in history or                 to prove herself equal to a romantic image she conceived for                 herself. Her purpose wasn’t to die. She died for her                 life’s purpose.” 
    —U.S. Senator John McCain, in Why Courage Matters             
    Hannah Senesh, poet and Israel’s                 national heroine, has come to be seen as a symbol of Jewish                 heroism. Safe in Palestine during World War II, she volunteered                 for a mission to help rescue fellow Jews in her native Hungary.                 She was captured by the Nazis, endured imprisonment and                 torture, and was finally executed at the age of twenty-three.  
    Like Anne Frank, she kept a diary from the                 time she was thirteen. This new edition brings together not                 only the widely read and cherished diary, but many of                 Hannah’s poems and letters, memoirs written by                 Hannah’s mother, accounts by parachutists who accompanied                 Hannah on her fateful mission, and insightful material not                 previously published in English.  
    Described by a fellow parachutist as a                 “spiritual girl guided almost by mysticism,”                 Hannah’s life has something of value to teach everyone.                 Now the subject of a feature-length documentary, Blessed Is the                 Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh, Hannah’s                 words and actions will inspire people from each generation to                 follow their own inner voices, just as she followed hers.

But she soon finds her expected role of maid of honor has been delegated to the worst possible choice: Sienna Jameson.

As the second son of a duke, David looks forward to facing the wilds of Scotland, and trying to make something of himself and prove his worth to his father.

Will he reveal what he knows to her friends and neighbors, destroying her current life? Eliza must avoid Liam at all costs, but he seems equally determined to flush her out of hiding. What happens if Eliza’s past does not stay where it belongs . . . in her past?

She takes on a challenge from a high society lady to kiss the Duke of Hargrave. When she finds Ethan alone and explains that she needs to kiss him, instead of turning her away, he’s amused.
