Both visionary and engagingly down-to-earth, "Living in Two Kingdoms" helps us recognize that the visible world of matter and the invisible world of spirit are not two worlds but one. We can be sure that whatever harsh reality we may have to face from time to time, the true reality is that we are never on our own. Because here and now - whatever it may feel like, we are truly part of the kingdom of God!Each chapter of this book ends with mediations, readings and prayers. These are designed to enable us to set aside time regularly to rest in the presence and peace of God, in order that we may rediscover afresh his all-encompassing love and care - and glory in the heaven that is all around us.
