"Salvation" in Its Full Sense
"In other words- to sum up where we've got so far- the work of salvation, in its full sense, is (1) about whole human beings, not merely souls; (2) about the present, not simply the future; and (3) about what God does through us, not merely what God does in and for us. If we can get this straight, we will rediscover the historic basis for the full-orbed mission of the church" (Surprised by Hope, p. 200-01).
