"showMore">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."
