“After this, I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no-one could count … And they cried out in a loud voice. ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’ ” (Revelation 7:10).
Christopher Wright uses this verse as a lens through which he surveys the Bible’s teaching on salvation. Every phrase in the verse resonates with significant themes in the Old and the New Testaments, all of which combine to show that the Bible tells the story of God’s salvation very broadly indeed, in relation to the character and purposes of God, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the redemption of all creation, the joy of Christian experience and the responsibility of Christian mission. This clear, deep and warm-hearted exposition enriches our grasp of the Bible’s multi-faceted teaching about salvation.
