The mission of God: Unlocking the Bible's Grand Na&hellip by Christopher J. H. Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Broad scope, 10 Nov 2007
What a wonderful idea--to go beyond the typical evangelical scope of the purposes of God, and paint a vision of redemption which reaches from Genesis to Revelation and includes the whole of creation. I have so often felt that preachers focus too much on individual salvation. Wright shows how God's perspective goes far beyond that. It is written in the whole of the Bible--start to finish--and covers all of life. It is the Bible, the life God has for us all, which is the Gospel. Included as well is a chapter on the redemption of the earth which includes a challenge to "value what God values" and see how the earth is not just here for us to use, but is a vital part of God's plan.
