“Caesar and Christ, the emperor on the throne and the despised rabbi on the cross, confront one another. They have much in common. But they belong to different worlds.”
One holds the reins of the most powerful empire the world has ever known, proclaiming the “good news” of political salvation to all who will worship at the altar of the nation. The other comes proclaiming an alternative kingdom ruled not by the power of violence and death but by the self-sacrificing love of God Himself.
Illuminating not only the astonishing, little-known historical parallels between these two opposing gospels, this book reveals that each of us today still ultimately confronts “Only Two Choices” in practically every facet of our lives. And this choice between two kingdoms—and the two fundamentally opposing powers behind them—still has ramifications just as relevant and far-reaching, just as revolutionary and challenging, as they were 2,000 years ago.
For those troubled by the current condition of Christianity in the Western world, this book presents a road map—with life-changing, practical insights—to guide the serious on a journey into the complete cultural alternative of the kingdom of God.
