Noteworthy: Chris Wright's The Mission of God's People

I hope that you're familiar with the works of Christopher Wright. If not I recommend them to you.  I'm familiar with the following:

The Mission of God
Salvation Belongs to Our God (my review)
Deuteronomy (NIBC)

A list of all of his works can be found here.

Well, Zondervan has announced the publication of yet another title due to be released in September (2010).

The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission
Series: Biblical Theology for Life  
Softcover, 304 pages.
In The Mission of God’s People, part of the Biblical Theology for Life series, author Chris Wright offers a sweeping biblical survey of the holistic mission of the church, providing practical insight for today’s church leaders. Wright gives special emphasis to theological trajectories of the Old Testament that not only illuminate God’s mission but also suggest priorities for Christians engaged in God’s world-changing work.

This looks like another useful work!
