“The very existence of the Bible is incontrovertible evidence of the God who refused to forsake his rebellious creatures” (citing Taber)
“The restoration of Israel to covenant obedience and thereby to covenant blessing (peace, fruitfulness, abundance) will make a corresponding impact on the nations also.”
“So although the exodus stands as a unique and unrepeatable event in the history of Old Testament Israel, it also stands as a paradigmatic and highly repeatable model for the way God wishes to act in the world, and ultimately will act for the whole creation.”
“We can enter the circle of missional response at any point on the circle of human need. But ultimately we must not rest content until we have included within our missional response the wholeness of God’s missional response to the human predicament – and that of course includes the good news of Christ”
“Election is missional in purpose”
Wright’s stuff on missional ethics is wonderfully insightful and helpful. His chapters on redemption, restoration, and ethics are worth the price of the book alone. If you’re looking for something to sink your teeth into this will repay your investment.
