Inglorious Kingdoms: Saving the Public Square from the Tyrannies of Bad Theology


Pin It

Inglorious Kingdoms is a collection of several of Joel’s essays on Christian social and political involvement in this world. It particularly includes several critiques of the view of radical “two kingdoms” theology which is being leveraged by some theologians today in an effort to keep Christians quiet—or completely out—of the public square. It is time Christians returned to Scripture in order to apply Scripture to every area of life. It is time we quit allowing the fears and intimidation of a few theologians oppress Christians with the tyrannies of bad theology.


The points established in Inglorious Kingdoms and the responses and critiques levied against opposing views will go a long way toward satisfying questions related to this topic, especially as they are usually presented by modern proponents. The question is not what this or that person says, or even what this or that cherry-picked confession says, but what Scripture says. This is the standard upheld throughout these essays, in addition to relating much of the history that R2K proponents would rather keep suppressed.
