In seeking for pleasures here and rewards hereafter men have destroyed (in their hearts) the Temple of Righteousness, and have wandered from the Kingdom of Heaven. By ceasing to seek for earthly pleasures and heavenly rewards, the Temple of Righteousness is restored and the Kingdom of Heaven is found. This truth is for those who are ready to receive it; and this book also is for those whose souls have been prepared for the acceptance of its teaching.
This book is often split into two books, Entering the Kingdom and The Heavenly Life, as follows:
Entering the Kingdom
The Soul's Great Need
The Competitive Laws and The Law of Love
The Finding of a Principle
At Rest in The Kingdom and All Things Added
The Heavenly Life
The Divine Center
The Eternal Now
The "Original Simplicity"
The Unfailing Wisdom
The Might of Meekness
The Righteous Man
Greatness and Goodness
Heaven in the Heart
