“Coming out of the Starting Block”
This short book contains the commands of Christ in a practical arrangement for new Christians. It is my hope that it will help many as they begin the journey along the path of obedience and growth in discipleship that leads to full joy.
Jesus is Lord!
R. Kirk Kilpatrick, Disciple of Jesus Christ
“Focus on the Finish Line”
Kingdom of God in Focus
My prayer and my hope for you in writing this book is that chapter by chapter, through eyes of faith, your vision of the coming Kingdom of God will come into crystal clear focus. As it does, my prayer is that your excitement and anticipation of the full realization of His second coming and of His Kingdom will grow and motivate you to holy living, and to tell others about the Lord Jesus, our coming King.
In service of the King,
