“Slow Kingdom Coming: Practices for Doing Justice, Loving Mercy and Walking Humbly in the World” By Kent Annan.

Kent Annan, co-director of Haiti Partners, understands the struggle of working for justice over the long haul. He confesses, “Over the past twenty years, I’ve succumbed to various failed shortcuts instead of living the freedom of faithful practices.” In this book, he shares practices he has learned that will encourage and help you to keep making a difference in the face of the world’s challenging issues – practices to give us strength in the race so that we can run and not grow weary.

All Christians are called to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly in the world. Slow Kingdom Coming will guide and strengthen you on this journey to persevere until God’s kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven.

Slow Kingdom Coming is a good read, full of engaging stories and insights, yet packed with field-tested principles of acting justly in your community. A free study-guide is available from Kent’s website, and is flexible enough to do in one week or as many as 8.
