      "God cannot lead you on the basis of information you do not have." —Ralph Winter What is God's mission in the world? For anyone passionate about discovering God's heart for the nations, Discovering the Mission of God will reveal his plans for you. Written by 21st-century field workers, scholars and church leaders, this book weaves together the basic components of God?s global . Chris Wright’s pioneering book, The Mission of God, revealed that the typical Christian understanding of “missions” encompasses only a small part of God’s overarching mission for the world. God is relentlessly reclaiming the entire world for himself. In The Mission of God’s People, Wright shows how God’s big-picture plan.

      Mission in the Old Testament is launched through the calling of Abraham, whom God chose to be the channel for his blessing to flow to the nations. Abraham was called to obey God, a calling that plays an important role in our understanding of how God’s mission goes forward. God chooses to involve people in his plan. God is on mission. He has been on mission throughout history to accomplish His purpose throughout the earth. Each time we see God in the Bible, He is acting in accordance with His purpose: to reveal Himself in order that His name would be glorified, that His Kingdom would be established and that some from every people would be reconciled to Himself.

    In John 17 especially, but also in earlier chapters, Jesus ties his mission to what we might call “the mission of the Trinity,” or the mission of God (missio Dei). In Jesus’ mind and action, the Trinity and his own mission were closely related. The Book of Mormon is true; consequently, the book of Enos is true. Enos’ mission, though not fruitful in his own time, has proved beneficial to the Nephite and Lamanite posterity of today in the form of his short but vital message in the Book of Mormon. This “cry from the dust” witnesses of the divinity of Jesus Christ to us today.
