Review 1 for Signs amid the Rubble: The Purposes of God in Human History
Date:September 14, 2012
While this work is quite dated by now, Newbigin is right on target with his observations about the Kingdom of God, both in the Social Gospel as well as in the otherworldly view. His opinion is to be taken very seriously, because as a missionary outside of Europe and North America he could evaluate ivory tower theologies where the rubber hits the road.

Review 2 for Signs amid the Rubble: The Purposes of God in Human History
Perseptive and thoughtful leadership

Excellent material for global thinkers keen to reflect scripture over whatever mankind attempts to achieve. Too deep for some readers but I enjoyed it immensely.
