Item Description...
Christopher J. H. Wright sets the concept of salvation in its biblical context, showing its global implications for how God's redeemed people relate to one another and the world they inhabit.

Publishers Description
A great multitude that no one could count . . . cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." Every phrase in Revelation 7:10 resonates with significant themes in the Old and New Testaments. Christopher Wright views the story of God's salvation through the lens of this verse to show the great breadth of God's saving work: the character and purposes of God, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the redemption of all creation, the joy of Christian experience, and the responsibility of Christian mission. This clear, deep and warm-hearted exposition enriches our grasp of the Bible's multifaceted teaching about salvation.

Great Intro to the Meta-narrative  Dec 11, 2009
Given the deeply ingrained modernism that the Western church has inherited from the Enlightenment period, we in the church tend to get stuck in the rut of propositional truth (which has its place), and we find ourselves reading the NT epistles over and over, as these are the easiest, most direct source of it. In doing so we miss the fact that the Bible is largely made up of narrative and has so much more to say than just propositional truth. At its core, the Bible is not a handbook for living, nor a textbook about God. It is the story of God -- a story that starts at the beginning of all things, and ends at the end. It is a story that we today are a part of and have a place in.

Christopher Wright's book SBTOG does a wonderful job of explaining this story - what the purpose is, who the characters are, and why it's meaningful to us today. There are a handful of other similar books out there (The Drama of Scripture, Far As the Curse is Found) that are also good. SBTOG takes a more thematic approach to the story, whereas TDOS and FASTCIF walk step by step through the events of the story. All of these books are good, though I would rank them, from highest to lowest, as SBTOG, TDOS, and then FASTCIF.

SBTOG is more of an entry-level overview of the Bible story, and it would make an excellent read for someone who wants a better idea of how the Bible as a whole has meaning and should impact our lives. Nevertheless, it can also serve as a reminder to even the seasoned theologians, who spend a lot of time on the little details, that there is an overarching story and plan of God's within which we play our part. I highly recommend this book.

Here's a wonderful summary of book's main point, from the book itself:

"Salvation in the Bible, because it is embodied in these historical covenants, is not merely a set of doctrines to be learned. Salvation is not just a subjective personal experience to be enjoyed by myself. Salvation is not some mythical future state of paradise that I long to arrive at by whatever religious methods I think will achieve it. Salvation is fundamentally a story - The Story. Salvation is constituted within the all-encompassing biblical meta-narrative that forms the biblical worldview.... The gospel is not somebody's theory. It is not somebody's good idea. The gospel is the good news about what the biblical God has done, is doing, and will finally do, within the history of the world." (pg 96)
