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.

"Good grief, this is a good book."

Scot McKnight, Jesus Creed blog

"In reading this book I have gained an even deeper understanding of an appreciation for the biblical perspectives of salvation. It is as if blinders have been removed from around my eyes, and now I can see what God has done through Jesus Christ for me in lights of what He is doing in all of creation. I heartily recommend this book."
