Rick Shrader‘s Review:
See this month’s article (Aletheia, June, 2012) for my appreciation of this book. Riley was a fundamentalist from Minneapolis who fought against the social gospel of his day that was being pushed by liberals. The liberal approach was to change the definitions of the church and the kingdom and take the emphasis away from personal faith for salvation. This book is a call for those who believe in the local church as well as a coming kingdom of God to be encouraged in both doctrines because they promote true evangelism.
