Overview

Christopher Wright uses this verse as a lens through which he surveys the Bible's teaching on 'salvation'. Every phrase in the verse resonates with significant themes in the Old and New Testaments, all of which combine to show that the Bible tells the story of God's salvation very broadly indeed, in relation to the character and purposes of God, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the redemption of all creation, the joy of Christian experience and the responsibility of Christian mission.

This clear, deep and warm-hearted exposition enriches our grasp of the Bible's multi-faceted teaching about salvation.

Editorial Reviews

Scot McKnight
"Good grief, this is a good book."
Jason Button
"In reading this book I have gained an even deeper understanding of an appreciation for the biblical perspectives of salvation. It is as if blinders have been removed from around my eyes, and now I can see what God has done through Jesus Christ for me in lights of what He is doing in all of creation. I heartily recommend this book."
