“the whole Bible is itself a missional phenomenon. The writings that now comprise our Bible are themselves the product of and witness to the ultimate mission of God. The Bible renders to us the story of God's mission through God's people in their engagement with God's world for the sake of the whole of God's creation. The Bible is the drama of this God of purpose engaged in the mission of achieving that purpose universally, embracing past, present and future, Israel and the nations, "life, the universe and everything," and with its centre, focus, climax, and completion in Jesus Christ. Mission is not just one of a list of things that the Bible happens to talk about, only a bit more urgently than some. Mission is, in that much-abused phrase, "what it's all about.”
Christopher J.H. Wright

“Evil and sin weave their way into every aspect of God’s creation and every dimension of human personhood and life on earth.”
Christopher J. H. Wright, The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission

“The reality is, of course, as soon as you think seriously about it, that the mission field is everywhere, including your own street – wherever there is ignorance or rejection of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Christopher J. H. Wright, The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission
