Item Description...
Overview
Most Christians would agree that the Bible provides a basis for mission. But Christopher Wright boldly maintains that mission is bigger than that--there is in fact a missional basis for the Bible! The entire Bible is generated by and is all about God's mission.In order to understand the Bible, we need a missional hermeneutic of the Bible, an interpretive perspective that is in tune with this great missional theme. We need to see the "big picture" of God's mission and how the familiar bits and pieces fit into the grand narrative of Scripture. Beginning with the Old Testament and the groundwork it lays for understanding who God is, what he has called his people to be and do, and how the nations fit into God's mission, Wright gives us a new hermeneutical perspective on Scripture. This new perspective provides a solid and expansive basis for holistic mission. Wright emphasizes throughout a holistic mission as the proper shape of Christian mission. God's mission is to reclaim the world--and that includes the created order--and God's people have a designated role to play in that mission.

The Best  Feb 20, 2007
Excellent, although not for the casual reader. It is the best theology of holisitc mission I've read since the early 1990s when Bosch's "Transforming Mission" came out. Bosch, you will recall, worked almost exclusively from the New Testament. Wright rectifies this imbalance and puts the Great Commission in its place. This book is a valuable corrective also to contemporary presentations such as David Hesselgrave's "Paradigms in Conflict" which understand the Great Commission in the narrowist of terms.
 
Superb !! An absolute masterpiece of excellent , comprehensive and deep biblical teaching !! Learn from it !!  Jan 28, 2007
Written by a serious bible scholar, who has done his homework, this is a major new work on what the bible is all about. I have read plenty about bible studies and such (see my reviews), and I think this is truly a ground breaking book. Completely biblical, thoroughly thought out! A wealth of perspective!! Phenomenal! Get it, get it, get it!! A heavy weight exploration of what is going on in the bible and with God's plan of redemption as layed out throughout the bible. This is way way more than knowing if your invisible soul/spirit will go to heaven when you die. Here is just a tidbit of thinking typical of this book's train of thought:

The biblical scope of God's plan of redemption is cosmic in scope, the hope of biblical salvation is that there will be a new creation, a new heavens and a new earth made free from sin, decay, and death, and wherein God himself with dwell with his people. For instance see Romans 8:19-21 with 2 Peter 3:13 and Revelation 21:1-5. From this overarching theme of scripture flows the biblical ethic, purpose and mission.

This book's wide and complete scope of biblical teaching will have to be reckoned with by serious students of the bible and it's message of God's plan of redemption found in and through Jesus. The Publisher, Intervarsity Press has a website where you can look this book up and see the table of contents for it and some book description. Thanks Dr. Wright for the lifelong learning you have made available in this work. A sort of similar work, but on a smaller scale is: The Drama of Scripture by Craig Bartholomew. It is also extremely helpful for grasping what the bible is all about.
