Very good

This is an impressive book. I did not realize what I was getting into when I picked it up. Wright (the current head of the foundation that John Stott started for training Christian leaders around the world) is writing a follow up to his previous book The Mission of God. This book seems to be covering similar ground (I haven't read the other, just reviews) but from a different perspective. This book is looking at the way that God has used his people (Israel in the OT and the church in the NT) and how we should learn from the ways that God has used others in the past. This is very good look at reading the Old Testament with respect to what we know of Christ from the New. I highly recommend this and I will be re-reading in print again soon.
