Sharing, not hoarding. Service, not status. Community, not competition. Basins, not swords. Loyalty to God, not nation. Jesus turned everything upside down. When we follow him, we can too.

In the anniversary edition of the classic book The Upside-Down Kingdom, author Donald B. Kraybill calls readers to imagine and embody the reign of God on earth as it is in heaven. Since its publication in 1978, The Upside-Down Kingdom has become the most-trusted resource on radical Christian discipleship. What does it mean to follow the Christ who traded victory and power for hanging out with the poor and forgiving his enemies? How did a man in first-century Palestine threaten the established order, and what does that mean for us today? What would happen if Christians replaced force with suffering, violence with love, and nationalism with allegiance to Jesus?

Jesus turned expectations upside-down. The kingdom of God is still full of surprises. Are you ready?

This anniversary edition has been updated and revised by the author with new interpretations of parables, added cultural context, and connections to current events.

Includes questions for discussion.
