Kingdom-conspiracyScot McKnight’s Kingdom Conspiracy was selected by Outreach Magazine as one of the 12th Annual Outreach Resources of the Year, with three other Baker Publishing Group titles listed as recommended resources.

With almost 170 submissions in 14 categories, 14 panelists evaluated various publications and had the opportunity to select one or more Outreach Resources of the Year. Kingdom Conspiracy was named the Outreach Resource of the Year in the Missional Church category.

In the book, McKnight contends that "kingdom" is the most misused term by Christians today. He offers a biblical corrective and a vision for the role of the local church in the kingdom of God.

Todd Engstrom, executive pastor of ministries at The Austin Stone Community Church, states that Kingdom Conspiracy “is a timely resource for the missional church to re-examine some basic assumptions that impact church practice in the everyday.”

The three other Baker titles honored by Outreach are God’s Wider Presence by Robert K. Johnston (Culture); iGods by Craig Detweiler (Culture) and The Grave Robber by Mark Batterson (Christian Living).
