Chris Wright’s pioneering 2006 book, The Mission of God, revealed that the typical Christian understanding of “missions” encompasses only a small part of God’s overarching mission for the world. God is relentlessly reclaiming the entire world for himself. In The Mission of God’s People, Wright shows how God’s big-picture plan directs the purpose of God’s people, the church.

Wright emphasizes what the Old Testament teaches Christians about being the people of God. He addresses questions of both ecclesiology and missiology with topics like “called to care for creation,” “called to bless the nations,” “sending and being sent,” and “rejecting false gods.” As part of the Biblical Theology for Life Series, this book provides pastors, teachers and lay learners with first-rate biblical study while at the same time addressing the practical concerns of contemporary ministry. The Mission of God’s People promises to enliven and refocus the study, teaching, and ministry of those truly committed to joining God’s work in the world.

    " I'm not a big book reviewed, I just don't have the time; but I'll say this was a very good book, broad in scope and very informative. I would recommend to those who love the missional message or love theology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 2/14/2011

    " Excellent Biblical Theology for those who do not have time or desire to read "The Mission of God". This book is not a one-for-one in that it covers new topics and does not go into the detail of "The Mission of God" but is a must read for any pastor and his congregation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 8/19/2010

    " This was well done. I previously read his "The Mission of God." This was very useful for thinking through and adding material to my class, Intro to the Bible. "

    " Gregg Allison, our merciful professor, let us read a twenty-page summary and simply skim the actual five-hundred-plus-page book. I did enjoy what I read, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 7/16/2009

    " This book clarified for me God's divine purpose of bringing all nations to see his essential being and nature (glory). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 12/24/2008

    " Discover (if you haven't already) the plot that holds the story of the Bible together and your place within that plot as a believer. It's a long book, but it's worth the work. "
