I like this definition. Very N.T. Wright-ish! :) BTW, one of the best works of Biblical Theology that I've ever read is John Bright's little book "The Kingdom of God." It just came back into print, I believe, and should absolutely be on every Christian's shelf (after they've read it, of course!).
Sweet! I'll definitely check out Bright's book. It will make a good Christmas present!
I think the best definition is "The Kingdom of God is where God's reign holds sway." I recognize, though, that that is almost a tautology and not very useful. I think it the best starting point, though, with lots of unpacking to do on the implications for the individual, for society , and even for the Christmas season!
