Joel’s latest book is like ring-side seats at a royal theological rumble—except it’s real. This is a dozen or so men rounded up into a single ring in the social-theological clash of the century—and in the end, only one man is left standing.
That’s Jesus Christ, of course. King Jesus, that is—king of all realms of life, and whose Word and Law must reign in all times and places. That’s the heart of this fight!
In this fight, billed as Inglorious Kingdoms, Joel McDurmon takes on the tag-teams of two-kingdom theology at their fiercest as he has over the years locked arms with Michael Horton, Kim Riddlebarger, The White Horse Inn generally, Carl Trueman, Alistair Begg, Todd Friel, R. W. Glenn, Trevin Wax, Phil Johnson, Joe Carter, R. Scott Clark, John Piper, Tim Keller, Peter Kreeft, and others.
Joel’s effort brings forth Scriptural truth regarding the role of God’s Word in society where R2K proponents and practitioners especially lack answers, but also hits back on the historical and confessional fronts where they often seem more comfortable. Joel dips into Reformed and Puritan history to reveal the strong social and political positions, including optimistic theology, that used to characterize men who called themselves Reformed.
Joel also shows the dangerous aspects of R2K theology: the tyrannies to which it leads, ranging everywhere from the hot air of politicians to the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Here, some of his most vaunted opponents get tossed out of the ring—and without mercy.
