The World is Not Ours to Save

Tyler Wigg-Stevenson: Finding the Freedom to Do Good

The World is Not Ours to Save: Finding the Freedom to Do Good
By Tyler Wigg-Stevenson (IVP)

Tyler Wigg-Stevenson points us beyond the all-too-trendy and empty hope of mere activism and toward a life of freedom and faithful living. He writes that trusting God in our pursuit to do good and looking to the future for God’s ultimate works of kingdom justice help us avoid activism fatigue. He reminds us that the world is, indeed, not ours to save but to love and serve while reinforcing the important synergy between theology, evangelism, mission and practical, compassionate living. With an emphasis on the person of Jesus and his paradigm for kingdom justice, Wigg-Stevenson paints a picture of sustainable, personal responsibility in a world of unimaginable evil and relentless need. This book is an essential contribution to the burgeoning body of literature in pursuit of compassion and justice, and it’s a deeper and more holistic understanding of what it means to love God and his world. —R.
