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…

Bible Speaks Today, Old Testament (BST): The Message of Lamentations

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…

Bible Speaks Today, Old Testament (BST): The Message of Ezekiel

Bible Speaks Today, Old Testament (BST): The Message of Ezekiel

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…

The Mission of God Unlocking the Bible's Grand Narrative

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.

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…

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…

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?
