These seventeen essays give a fresh look at the spiritual life as “active expectation” of God’s kingdom breaking into this world. This kingdom is no longer relegated to some afterlife, but takes effect today.
“A comfortable Christianity will never change the world…” – Christoph Blumhardt
Ours is a time of intense searching. We hunger for a faith strong enough to transform us and our world. With unabashed fervor, Christoph Blumhardt burns away the chaff of modern piety. He proclaims a message that still today, a full century after he first voiced it, has power to stir up the embers of a dying faith. In his quest to get to the essentials, he has little patience for religious trappings. And yet his passion encourages, rather than intimidates. Blumhardt’s “active expectation” of God’s kingdom shows us that the object of our hope is not relegated to some afterlife. Today, in our world, it can come into its own – if only we are ready.

How does Mr Blumhardt know that 'many people go to hell' even though they believe that Jesus died and rose. We all sin on a daily basis but that when we confess our sins we are forgiven and made righteous because Christ is righteous and we are covered by His blood. Afterall St. Paul said he did the things he didn't want to do!
