"The Mission of God's People" is one of the best and most readable applied missional theologies you'll find. Behind this book is the solid OT scholarship of Chris Wright's "The Mission of God" (not available in Logos at the time of this review). So, this book reads like a "So what?" of that mission, dealing with what it means to be truly human, representing God in his world, living within the narrative of Scripture, expressing the richly diverse facets of missio dei. A must read.
