In The Mission of God's People, Chris Wright shows how God's big-picture plan directs the purpose of God's people, the church. 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. 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 you - whether you're a pastor, teacher, or lay learner - 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.… (mer)

A lot has been written about the 'missional church.' For some 'missional' means 'we do church in the pub' or incorporate the arts in worship. Those are mission strategies, but to be missional is to reflect the God of mission and participate in His mission. Thus to become 'missional' we first need to reflect on the purposes of God and his mission in the world. I know of no better guide than Old Testament scholar Chris Wright (I affectionately refer to him as OT Wright).


This covers much of the same ground as Wright's Mission of God but from a slightly different perspective. Both are great books. In the Mission of God, Wright surveys the whole Bible, to show what it tells us about God's mission (most 'missional books' focus on the New Testament--the gospels or Acts).

In The Mission of God's People Wright draws out the implications for our life and mission. He looks at various themes, for example creation, calling, redemption, justice, witness, etc., looks at what the Bible says about these in Old and New Testament and talks about how we in the church can live out God's mission in our context.

I listened to an audio book version of this from audible.com. I would suggest a text edition would be better. This book is too long and too rich with insight for an audio presentation. Also there were no chapter titles on the audio chapters, so it is harder to revisit relevant passages(which you will want to do). On the plus side, Wright himself read the audio so you get his Northern Irish baroque. ( )

The value of both The Mission of God and The Mission of God's People extends far beyond those whose full-time ministry is cross-cultural mission. Both books provide fresh lenses for reading Scripture that will provide depth and vigor for ministry of all kinds. Everyone engaging in full- time ministry should read either The Mission of God or The Mission of God's People. The daunting length of the former will make this recent volume the choice for many.
