Theology and Mission

In opening of his latest work, The Mission of God’s People, Christopher Wright wonderfully ties together the purpose of doing theology: mission:

There should be no theology that does not relate to the mission of the church – either by being generated out of the church’s mission or by inspiring and shaping it. And there should be no mission of the church carried on without deep theological roots in the soil of the Bible.

No theology without a missional impact; no mission without theological foundations.

Oh, that we would all “do” mission and theology as integrated disciples of Christ!
