Announcing Areopagus Critical Christian Issues Series

Energion Publications is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Christian Archy, the first booklet in the new Areopagus Critical Christian Issues Series. This series of booklets is designed to address critical and controversial issues in Christianity and will be jointly edited by Dr. David Alan Black and Dr. Allan R. Bevere. For more information on the series, see

Christian Archy, authored by Dr. Black, addresses the meaning of the kingdom of God and the demands of God’s sovereignty on Christian practice, both as part of the church community and in their relationship to the surrounding culture and to government authorities. He thoroughly examines the New Testament for all aspects of the kingdom, including those that make us uncomfortable.
