Kingdoms in Conflict book. Charles W. Colson, Ellen Santilli Vaughn. Charles Colson has done a good job of discussing both the kingdom of god and the kingdoms of this world. He is peculiarly fitted for this job and he has done an excellent job in presenting it. The book is a little slow at first but it gathers momentum as the pages turn by.

Charles R. As usual, Charles Colson writes another insightful book. This one in particular talks about the spiritual kingdoms and man's kingdoms. The two are rarely in agreement.

Kingdoms in Conflict by Charles Colson, Ellen Santilli Vaughan. By beginning his book with a sensational futuristic scenario, Colson hopes to capture a large audience for his central argument: that there has always been a tension between the claims of religion and the claims of the state. While he believes that the two must be separate as institutions, he vigorously argues that politicians must not exclude their religious beliefs from their decision-making. If a Christian president finds himself in conflict with the Constitution, then he must try to persuade the American people and their representatives that he is right or he must resign. God gifted Chuck Colson in incredible ways, and he gave it all back to the kingdom for Christ. We were honored to work with him and help carry his message to a hurting world, and I am grateful to have gotten the chance to meet and know Chuck.

Charles Colson has been called, one of the most important social reformers in a generation. Ten years ago in The Body, Colson turned his prophetic attention to the church and how it might break out of its cultural captivity and reassert its biblical identity. Today the book's classic truths have not changed. But the world we live in has. Christians in America have had their complacency shattered and their beliefs challenged. Around the world, the clash of world views has never been more strident

Explains how separation of Church and State provides a necessary counter balance for each institution and why this balance approximates the biblical idea of government

The main thing I knew about Charles Colson was that he was involved in Watergate and served time in prison. This is the only book of his that I have read. I am impressed with his intellect. Obviously others realized his brilliance, he was awarded 15 honorary degrees. He was also recognized with the Templeton Prize by George Bush and Jed Bush reinstated his rights taken from his imprisonment. He became a Christian after his time with the Nixon administration and was the founder of the Prison Ministry. He is an excellent writer, he wrote 30 books before he died of a brain hemorrhage in 2012. There is quite a bit of history in the book. Many of the major Christian leaders of both the 18th and the 19th century are profiled. My favorite part of this fine book was when Colson tells his feelings about the world today. He discusses Christianity vs secularism and says that the role of God is diminished when religion is pushed to be a private matter. People want religion to be the ultimate self-sufficient plan, therefore making it the equivalent of a sports car, designer clothes or Gordons Gin. He asks why sin is an outmoded term. He also comments that Jesus was probably visualized as a David type man, instead of "The Lamb of God", lambs are for sacrifice. When people change they can change society. He tells the history of the Nazi movement in Germany. Colson points out that God's rule is authoritarian but it is also voluntary The reader is given much to think about. He often quotes from literature, from writers I did not know and also from familia writers. The book is not a quick read but it is worth your time.
I gave this one 4 stars because I had just finished reading Colson's "Loving God" which I could not put down. Kingdoms in conflict has an excellent, researched account of just how Hitler organized his take down - appealing to the youth, and attacking the church's right to worship as they wished. The early persecution carved church member ship from 18,000 people at the first meeting to just a few hundred. There were some great saints who died in concentration camps, some after years of torture. I see so many similarities to what is happening to our government and church right now. This book dovetails nicely with Roger Oakland's "Faith Undone" - which offers some chilling insights about our immediate future. I like how Colson brings in many famous thoughts from atheists as well as believers and uses them all in a positive way to make his points. His position is that the church should never become involved with the government, and he gives many historical examples of what happened when the church capitulated to the state. It was always disastrous. It is a faith-strengthening book.
This is a must read. Mr. Colson is an excellent writer who masterfully explains the importance of Christian doctrine in an interesting and understandable manner. His Biblical knowledge is very impressive. All Christians need to be grounded in their faith and this book provides an excellent way to learn, review, apply what is important.
Excellent historic background of the church resistance to both Nazi and post WWII Comunism. Also good review of how post WWII philosophy and lack of good church leadership lead to our present ultra liberal, situational ethics and departure from a positive value standard. Highly recommended. Backed by extensive references.
I love Colson's writings! This book is another home run. He explains the essentials of my faith so clearly and at the same time challenges me to dig deeper into the awesome privilege of an intimate, heart-to-heart relationship that God so desires to have with each of us. This book gives a deeper understanding of what walking with Christ involves, every step, every day along life's path.
Freaky Hook
I have had the pleasure of doing volunteer work for Prison Fellowship for 21 years. The behind the walls ministry Mr Colson began, after his Watergate incarceration. A man who put party and country over Christ. He has written several
books from a repentant and contrite heart. His honesty is numbing and those of us who read his books are truly blessed.
From a man who can look back at his life through the lens of Jesus Christ eyes. Prison Fellowship is now in 117 countries
Amazing what God can do through a man willing to repent and fallow the truth of Christ.
This is a very informative book. Along with the DVD set and study guide it makes for a good group study and discussion guide. Every true Christian needs to understand a Biblical worldview in order to truly live for Yeshua the Messiah rather than for self.
I enjoy this book, which is why I bought it for another person--Charles Colson admitted to his sins, as we all should do--his work since his coming to Christ has been inspiring--I would recommend this book to anyone who professes to be a Christian.
