God I don't Understand, The

by Christopher J. H. Wright

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…

Lamentations: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

Lamentations: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

by Christopher J. H. Wright

The destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 587 BC is the likely setting for the book of Lamentations. This was the most traumatic event in the whole of Old Testament history, with its extreme human suffering, devastation of the ancient city, national humiliation, and the undermining of all that was thought to be theologically guaranteed like the Davi… Read more…

Ezekiel: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

Ezekiel: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

by Christopher J. H. Wright

Ezekiel comes to us as a stranger from a distant time and land. Who is this priest who, on his thirtieth birthday, has a dazzling vision of God on a wheeled throne? Who is this odd prophet who engages in outlandish street theater and speaks for God on international affairs? Who is this seer who paints murals of apocalyptic doom and then of a restored temple … Read more…

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

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 to show t… Read more…

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…

Mission of God's People

by Christopher J. H. Wright, Christopher Wright and 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…

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.
