I am challenged by the searingly accurate judgment of Jesus, delivered with such compassion and encouragement to the young inquirer: You are not far from the kingdom of God.

I don’t want to be “not far” from the kingdom of God. I don’t even want to be near the kingdom of God. I want to make my home in the kingdom of God and live every aspect of my life inside the reign of God.

This intimate collection of essays by Mary Sharon Moore reveals journeys of discovery into both the ordinary and the unexpected experiences of the reign of God in the life of a follower of Jesus. “I want to carry the reign of God within me,” she writes, “alive in the innermost aspect of every cell and fiber of my being.”

Touching the Reign of God breaks open familiar passages of Scripture with vivid descriptions of the challenges, hopes, and unexpected insights in ordinary life. Each essay ends with questions for reflection and conversation.

Mary Sharon Moore is an active writer and nationally recognized speaker on the maturing relationship with God and on the nature of God’s calling. She serves individuals nationwide as a spiritual director. She has a master’s degree in theological studies, with a focus in liturgical spirituality, from the Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley.

  1. Signe Larson

    Touching the Reign of God is one of Mary Sharon Moore’s most powerful books because she relates some challenging and intimidating situations she has found herself in as she follows Christ’s command to ” love the Lord with all your heart” as well as “to love thy neighbor as thy self.” Each chapter is an engaging, authentically told true story.
