"Wright (The Mission of God), international ministries director of Langham Partnership, serves as a sage guide to the fruits of the Holy Spirit as documented in the letters of St. Paul. Wright's scripture scholarship is on full display as he helps Christians delve more deeply into biblical texts for general edification and to learn fundamental life lessons. . . . Christians hoping to deepen their biblical knowledge and faith lives will find much to appreciate here." (Publishers Weekly, December 12, 2016)

"Prepare for those 'aha!' moments and a few shouts of 'of course!' as Chris Wright takes us on a biblical journey, straightforward and deep, into the fruit of the Spirit. With his characteristic balance of profundity and simplicity, Chris offers a stirring view of the transforming impact of Scripture as it reveals the fruit of the Spirit. And Chris roots us in the whole understanding of these dynamic truths by connecting the fruit of the Spirit with needed yet often overlooked context from the Old Testament. Encouragement jumps out from the pages of this book as readers are reminded of how our ordinary lives bear the mark of Christ's love and how giants of the faith like John Stott applied such truth via daily prayer, to 'cause your fruit to ripen in my life.'" (Benjamin K. Homan, president, Langham Partnership USA (formerly John Stott Ministries)

"Several years ago I had the pleasure of discussing Ephesians with Chris Wright at his kitchen table. We sat with Bibles open, notes strewn everywhere, and a pot of tea. Chris's love for God, his scholarly expertise, and easy manner made for a delightful and enriching afternoon. Through this book, Chris invites you to join him as well. Rarely is the wisdom of a theologian of such caliber this accessible. So grab your Bible, pull up a seat, and explore what the Scripture has to say about life in the Spirit." -- (Lindsay Olesberg, author of The Bible Study Handbook)

How should Christians live? On the one hand, some very legalistic Christians stress the importance of keeping all the rules―that you must do this and never do that if you want to prove you are really a Christian. On the other hand, there are those who reject the whole idea of rules or traditions in the church and see the point of the Christian faith as setting us free from the institutionalized religious burden. But Paul addresses these two competing views by showing us a far better way―a truly Christian way to live our lives. It is the way of the Spirit of God given to us through Christ: "Walk by the Spirit . . . led by the Spirit . . . live by the Spirit . . . keep in step with the Spirit." That is the heart and soul of Christian living. It is the center and secret of what it means to be a person who belongs to Christ. Pastor and scholar Christopher Wright invites us to live a life in step with the Spirit by cultivating the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These nine chapters, each addressing a different fruit, each conclude with questions for contemplation or discussion. Feed on the Word of God, grow in Christlikeness, and live a fruitful life.

Muitas discussões têm ocupado a mente dos cristãos. No ambiente multifacetado da fé, nem sempre a discussão do momento é a que verdadeiramente importa. O grande desafio — e que, por isso, deveria ser nosso principal foco — é tornarmo-nos semelhantes a Cristo. Nosso estilo de vida deve refletir, em cada aspecto, o exemplo legado pelo Mestre, o que implica reconhecer que viver como Jesus é caminhar pelo Espírito, ser guiado pelo Espírito, viver pelo Espírito. Ao aceitar o convite do teólogo Christopher J. H. Wright em Aprendendo a viver como Jesus, você iniciará uma jornada pelos ensinamentos do apóstolo Paulo sobre o fruto do Espírito e descobrirá como reorientar sua vida tendo Jesus como modelo.

Top Highlights
“A cruz não é apenas o meio pelo qual somos salvos; também é o modelo para como devemos viver.” (Page 33)

“O fruto é um resultado natural da vida. Se uma árvore está viva, produz fruto. Faz parte da natureza de ser uma árvore viva! Fruto é o que se obtém quando uma árvore tem vida dentro dela.” (Page 21)

“Um elemento fundamental da boa pregação, contudo, é que deve não apenas ser fiel ao texto bíblico, mas também relevante para o contexto local do pregador e dos ouvintes.” (Page 9)

“João diz, portanto, que não devemos ser como Caim (nem mesmo em nossos pensamentos), mas como Cristo (não apenas em nossos pensamentos, mas na vida prática, v. 18).” (Page 29)

“O amor nos permite cumprir devidamente a lei de Deus sem legalismo.” (Page 17)

Winner, 2007 Christianity Today Missions/Global Affairs Book

"A rich and most impressive work. It is a splendid exposition of a comprehensive biblical theology of mission, and will have to be taken seriously by every student of the subject."--Andrew F. Walls, University of Edinburgh

"This marvelous book is all I hoped and expected, and more. Chris Wright has spent thirty years combining an academic involvement with the Old Testament and a commitment to God's mission in the world. We are so fortunate to have the mature fruit of a lifetime's reflection on the missional nature of the Bible by this outstanding teacher, scholar and missionary theologian. It threatens to revolutionize what people usually mean by the missional aspect of the Scriptures. And it also threatens to revolutionize understandings of the Scriptures by its demonstration that they are, through and through, a missional document."--John Goldingay, author of Old Testament Theology and professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

"A short review can only acknowledge the brilliant, balanced scholarship that Wright evidences throughout. . . . [T]his is a must-read. . . . [T]his book is one to be meditated on and prayed through."--International Bulletin of Missionary Research, July 2007

"This book is a fascinating combination of introduction on biblical hermeneutics, biblical theology, and, at the same time, it is a missiology textbook."--The Presbyterian Outlook, August 20, 2007

A great multitude that no one could count . . . cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb." Every phrase in Revelation 7:10 resonates with significant themes in the Old and New Testaments. Christopher Wright views the story of God's salvation through the lens of this verse to show the great breadth of God's saving work: 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 multifaceted teaching about salvation.… (més)
