On a recent edition of White Horse Inn, Dr. Michael Horton talked with Rev. Christopher Wright, the international director of the Langham Partnership/John Stott Ministries and author of The Mission of God: Unlocking the Bible’s Grand Narrative and The Mission of God’s People: A Biblical Theology of the Church's Mission. This past October, at the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town, South Africa, Christopher Wright called for a second Reformation, calling the church to abandon its idolatry of power, pride, popularity and wealth, and return to a humble, simple, and missional faith in Christ – you can read about it in this article by Christianity Today.
I read through The Mission of God a few years ago and I’m currently reading through The Mission of God’s People. Wright’s insights into missional theology and his articulation of the metanarrative of the Scriptures have been personally helpful and transformational. He has served me well and I thank God for his contributions to the advancement of the Kingdom.
In the White Horse Inn interview, Mike Horton inquired about his recent Lausanne Congress address and many other issues relating to his recent publications and books on the mission of God and the church. It’s worth a listen and it’s also worth sharing. You can find the interview on the White Horse Inn podcast or listen to it to here.
