Christianity: Where Did All the Power Go?
Signs Wonders, and the Kingdom of God is a book for anyone who believes in God’s supernatural power but who doubts that we can experience that power personally.
A graduate of Princeton and a “solid evangelical” pastor, Don Williams was trained to believe in the power of human reason and the reliability of the scientific method. He thought that a reasonable man ought to be able to control his world. Williams’ worldview worked well until God shattered his perceptions through the power of signs and wonders.
This new book presents a fascinating, biblical theology of the Kingdom of God. Williams describes how God works to establish his reign now and in eternity and how we can demonstrate and proclaim, as Jesus did, the supernatural power of his kingdom.
Signs, Wonders, and the Kingdom of God investigates the relationship between supernatural power and the ministry of the church today. As a community of love and faith under the reign of God, we continue Jesus’ ministry of power evangelizing the poor, casting out demons, healing the sick, and setting free the captives.
“Nothing is more important to the life of His church at this hour than that Jesus Christ be made Lord and allowed to rule as King. Don Williams’ work will help more of us see the biblical basis for letting Jesus be both.”
—Jack W. Hayford, Sr. Pastor
The Church on the Way
“Those who have been skeptical and have had difficulty grasping the new manifestations of power in the church will be helped by this insightful, probing look at the way in which God has empowered his people through the past into the present. You will find helpful direction in recovering a more dynamic ministry.”
—Robert L. Wise
