The Mission of God's People (Christopher J. H. Wright)
The typical Christian understanding of "missions" encompasses only a small part of God's overarching mission in the world. But God is relentlessly reclaiming the entire world for himself. In The Mission of God's People, author and international ministries expert Chris Wright explores how God's big-picture plan directs the purpose of God's people, the church.
Each session emphasizes what the Old Testament teaches Christians about being the people of God and addresses 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."
This series provides pastors, teachers, students, and lay learners with first-rate biblical and theological study while addressing the practical concerns of contemporary ministry. It will help enliven and refocus the study, teaching, and ministry of those truly committed to joining God's work in the world.
