About "Vital Truth"
In this book Nigel Wright brings together the two concerns that have defined his ministry: the formation of healthy congregational life on the one side, and the considered articulation of Christian convictions on the other. In the belief that these two concerns are intimately related, he sets out the range of Christian convictions in a way intended to be accessible to church members who wish to clarify and deepen their understanding. The book is rooted in the belief that the resurrection of Christ is the central reality out of which all other Christian convictions emerge. Beginning at this point and in the belief that Christ is present in the community of believers, the book then explores Christian convictions about God, Christology, creation, salvation, election, evil, eschatology, and witness to the world.
