Hearing the Message of Daniel

Hearing the Message of Daniel

by Christopher J. H. Wright

In many corners of the world these days the climate of hostility hangs over any overt Christian faith commitment. Any kind of Christian commitment is now assumed to imply intolerance and often prompts reactions that range from a low-grade hostility and exclusion in the West to the vicious and murderous assaults on Christian believers in Pakistan, Nigeria, Ke… Read more…

Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit: Growing in Christlikeness

Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit: Growing in Christlikeness

by Christopher J. H. Wright

How should Christians live? On the one hand, some very legalistic Christians stress the importance of keeping all the rules—that you must do this and never do that if you want to prove you are really a Christian. On the other hand, there are those who reject the whole idea of rules or traditions in the church and see the point of the Chri… Read more…

How to Preach and Teach the Old Testament for All Its Worth

How to Preach and Teach the Old Testament for All Its Worth

by Christopher J. H. Wright

Many preachers ignore preaching from the Old Testament because they feel it is outdated in light of the New Testament and difficult to expound. On the other hand, some preachers will preach from the Old Testament frequently but fail to handle it correctly, turning it into moralistic rules or symbolic lessons for our spiritual life. In How to Preach and Teach… Read more…

Great Commission, Great Compassion: Following Jesus and Loving the World

by Christopher J. H. Wright and Paul Borthwick

Go and do. Jesus commands it, and the world needs it. Word and deed go together. One without the other is not enough. We follow Jesus into all the world, and we follow his example in all we do.

Christian Mission in the Modern World

Christian Mission in the Modern World

by Christopher J. H. Wright and John Stott

Jesus sends us into the world just as the Father sent him. And yet thousands of years later Christians continue to disagree on what this involves. Some believe that the focus of Christian mission is evangelizing and "saving souls." Others emphasize global justice issues or relief and development work. Is either view correct on its own? John… Read more…

Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament

Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament

by Christopher J. H. Wright

We cannot know Jesus without knowing his story. Today the debate over who Jesus is rages on. Has the Bible bound Christians to a narrow and mistaken notion of Jesus? Should we listen to other gospels, other sayings of Jesus, that enlarge and correct a mistaken story? Is the real Jesus entangled in a web of the church's Scripture, awaiting liberation … Read more…

The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible's Grand Narrative

by Christopher J. H. Wright

Winner, 2007 Christianity Today Missions/Global Affairs Book Most Christians would agree that the Bible provides a basis for mission.

Old Testament Ethics for the People of God

Old Testament Ethics for the People of God

by Christopher J. H. Wright

Nothing confuses Christian ethics quite like the Old Testament. Some faithful readers struggle through its pages and conclude that they must obey its moral laws but may disregard its ceremonial and civil laws. Others abandon its teaching altogether in favor of a strictly New Testament ethic. Neither option, argues Chris Wright, gives the Old Testament its du… Read more…

Salvation Belongs to Our God: Celebrating the Bible's Central Story

by Christopher J. H. Wright

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 … Read more…

Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission

by Christopher J. H. Wright and Christopher Wright

Narrated by Christopher Wright

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 p… Read more…

God I Don't Understand: Reflections on Tough Questions of Faith

God I Don't Understand: Reflections on Tough Questions of Faith

by Christopher J. H. Wright and John R. W. Stott

If we are honest, we have to admit that there are many things we don’t understand about God. We do not have final answers to the deep problems of life, and those who say they do are probably living in some degree of delusion. There are areas of mystery in our Christian faith that lie beyond the keenest scholarship or even the most profound spiritual exerci… Read more…
