Citizens: Your Role in the Alternative Kingdom by Rob Peabody Book Review

My Review:


I would recommend this amazing book to readers who are longing to live the abundant life God has created for them to live. Rob Peabody encouraged readers to join the awaking and to repossess their Jerusalem. I liked how he reminded readers that we can live an extraordinary life and doing what God has called us to do. I felt exhilarated when he shared about how he made the challenging move to London from the United States. He showed breathtaking courage in stepping out of his comfort zone. I really enjoyed how he used the term “citizens” as being a part of His Kingdom. He went in great detail about how Caleb and Joshua wasn’t afraid to overcome the Nephilim and how the Israelites were scared of the giants. They knew their role in the Kingdom and they knew God’s astonishing power! I appreciated how he included tons of scriptures verses throughout the book to guide readers. If you’re looking for a book to help you in your walk with God, then read this book!


About the book: 
For Rob Peabody, the young pastor at a mega-church in southern USA, the realization that his faith had little real connection with the world around him meant that something had to change. He redirected his church towards the poor on their doorstep and then took the larger step of moving to the UK to establish the missional fellowship 'Awaken'.
In Citizen he outlines the Kingdom-centered identity that is given to followers of Jesus. It's a wake-up call to the church in the West. Jesus' death and resurrection initiates and invites people into a life of so much more than the status quo. God is re-building, re-newing, and re-creating that which is broken and marred by sin, and he is doing this --- setting things right in the world --- through Jesus. As citizens of the Kingdom, we have been saved and set apart for this work. We have a new allegiance, a changed identity, and a new mission as we seek to establish the rule of God on earth as it is in Heaven.
