Scot’s latest book is ‘Kingdom Conspiracy: Returning to the Radical Mission of the Local Church’, and in it he makes some controversial claims that have been met with a fair share of criticism as well as considerable praise.

If you are in or near the Nashville, TN area then you may be interested in an upcoming event centered around Kingdom Conspiracy. The Hazelip School of Theology  at Lipscomb University and Missio Alliance are organizing a discussion of the Christian faith led by Scot. The questions asked in the book will be the same questions discussed at the event.

  • What is the purpose and role of the local church in kingdom work?
  • Should our concern be primarily on spiritual matters or on social justice issues?
  • Are social justice issues kingdom work even if the name of Jesus is not involved?
  • Can kingdom work avoid social issues and still be authentically Christian? 

Find out more details about the event here.
