In The Mission of God's People, part of the Biblical Theology for Life series, author Chris Wright offers a sweeping biblical survey of the holistic mission of the church, providing practical insight for today's church leaders. Wright gives special emphasis to theological trajectories of the Old Testament that not only illuminate God's mission but also suggest priorities for Christians engaged in God's world-changing work.
It's also the best book on whole-life discipleship I've ever read. It's brilliant, compelling, moving, inspiring. I love it.
This book presents a biblical theology of discipleship that gives the 'big picture' of God's relationship with humanity. Faithful discipleship to Jesus the King must always involve responding to his bracing call for righteousness, but doing so in the ongoing experience of the Servant's prior, enabling grace. This book presents a view of Christian discipleship that is grounded in an informed Christology of Jesus, the Servant King.
