About the Author

Christopher Wright is International Ministries Director of the Langham Partnership International. He was formerly Principal of All Nations Christian College and taught at Union Biblical Seminary, Pune, India. His books include Old Testament Ethics for the People of God and The Message of Ezekiel (both IVP), the New International Biblical Commentary on Deuteronomy (Paternoster) and Knowing Jesus through the Old Testament (Monarch).


To an already impressive list of publications dealing with the Bible and mission, Chris Wright now adds what must surely be his magnum opus. This remarkably comprehensive work does nothing less than point the way ahead for the global Christian movement in the twenty-first century, and in the process it challenges a host of received assumptions in biblical scholarship, Christian theology, and missionary practice. I believe Wright's book will be seen as the most important work of its kind since David Bosch's contribution in the 1990s and, like that work, it is likely to be read, discussed and, hopefully, applied to practice for years to come.
A rich and most impressive work. It is a splendid exposition of a comprehensive biblical theology of mission, and will have to be taken seriously by every student of the subject. -- Andrew F. Walls * University of Edinburgh *
Wright has truly laid a cornerstone in the edifice of mission, one on which a biblical theology of mission would be wise to build. -- Michael J. Glodo * Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, June 2009 *
