Few biblical topics are as important as mission. It is inextricably linked to humanity's redemption and salvation in the person and work of Jesus Christ: Jesus' saving mission is the foundation for Christian mission and the Christian gospel is its message.

This revised and updated second edition of Salvation to the Ends of the Earth emphasizes the continuing narrative of God’s mission throughout the Bible – ranging from the story of Israel to the story of Jesus and that of the early Christians. At the same time, it provides a robust historical and chronological backbone to the unfolding of the early Christian mission, perfect for anyone wanting to learn more about the Biblical role and importance of mission.

Thoroughly revised to draw on the most up-to-date scholarship, and incorporating exposition of the Epistles with the Gospel with which they have the closest canonical and historical affinity, this New Studies in Biblical Theology book offers a fresh, enriched and in-depth picture of God as a God of historical mission. It will leave you with a broader ands stronger understanding of the Biblical significance of mission and its place at the heart of the Christian message.

Hard as it is to believe, two decades have elapsed since the publication of the first edition of this biblical theology of mission. The second edition aims, no less than the first, to trace the theme of mission across the Bible's story-line. Instead of envisaging mission as a late post-resurrection afterthought, it teases out the organic wholeness of the theme from Genesis to the Apocalypse. Nevertheless, most of the book has been re-written and updated, and some of it has been re-cast. For example, instead of outlining Paul's contribution to the theme of mission on its own (certainly a worthy goal), this second edition examines Paul's letters in tandem with the developments in the Book of Acts – a more complicated but highly illuminating procedure. If this volume contributes to enriching preachers and Bible teachers around the world with a renewed vision of God as a missionary God, the authors and editor will be profoundly grateful.
