Gospel Christians (Quote)

“We have lived for [too] many years with ‘kingdom Christians’ and ‘cross Christians’ in opposite corners of the room, anxious that those on the other side are missing the point, the one group with its social-gospel agenda and the other with its saving-souls-for-heaven agenda. The four gospels bring these two viewpoints together in a unity that is much greater than the sum of their parts….” (N.T. Wright in How God Became King, p. 159)
