Are you a missionary if you’re “just” doing your everyday work? Yes, you are.
Here is one of the lectures based on the fantastic book, The Mission of God’s People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission by Christopher J. H. Wright. Unlike in any other book, Wright provides a full-orbed picture of our mission as Christians. In this particular lecture, he explains how Christians are “People Who Live and Work in the Public Square.”
Christopher J. H. Wright is a missiologist, an Anglican clergyman and an Old Testament scholar. He is currently the International Ministries Director of Langham Partnership International, a group of ministries originally founded by John Stott, committed to the strengthening of the church in the Majority World through fostering leadership development, biblical preaching, literature, and doctoral scholarships. He was the principal of All Nations Christian College.
In addition to The Mission of God’s People (Zondervan), Chris Wright has written several other books, including The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible’s Grand Narrative (IVP), Living as the People of God: The Relevance of OT Ethics (IVP), God’s People in God’s Land (Eerdmans / Paternoster), Knowing Jesus through the Old Testament (Monarch / IVP), Knowing the Holy Spirit through the Old Testament (Monarch, IVP), Knowing God the Father through the Old Testament (Monarch, IVP), Deuteronomy: New International Biblical Commentary (Hendrikson / Paternoster), Thinking Clearly about the Uniqueness of Jesus (Monarch), The Message of Ezekiel, The Bible Speaks Today (IVP), Old Testament Ethics for the People of God (IVP), Life Through God’s Word: Psalm 119 (Authentic), Salvation Belongs to Our God: Celebrating the Bible’s Central Story (IVP).
