>He offers redemption, in all its magnificent and diverse manifestations, as more than the blessed hope of heaven.

Ok, so this guy is a "Kingdom Now" or "Dominionist" just like Rick Warren and many old-line denomination preachers like R.C. Sproll. There's nothing new here.

This theology was developed in the period before the rebirth of Israel, when they practiced replacement theology (where promises made to Israel were transferred to the Church) and prophesy was allegoricized to meaninglessness. This process of saying that the Kingdom of God is internal and spiritual outright denies Jesus' own teachings and a mountain of prophesy to say Jesus wasn't really going to sit on the throne of David and rule Israel, but rule 'in our hearts'.

This theology fell into disrepute in the mid 20th century when the much vaunted claim that the world would get better and better until Jesus came was proven wrong by the bloodiest period in history (which continues today) and by the rebirth of Israel which called the replacement theology into doubt.

True, one can be - as the saying goes - So heavenly minded as to be of no earthly good. However, we should see this missive for what it is - a call for a return to Dominionism.

Also, one should note that Jesus' description of the Kingdom of Heaven wasn't always good. He himself defines birds as the servants of Satan, and then describes them nesting in the branches of the church. He describes a woman introducing yeast into the fellowship offering - another description of sin spreading through the curch.

Nothing in Jesus' description of the Kingdom of Heaven (eartly) would lead one to think things were going to get better and better.
