This is a work of practical theology and cultural philosophy, demonstrating the religious nature of all human actions and institutions. In The Mission of God, Joe Boot examines the historic biblical perspective on everyday cultural matters, demonstrating the abiding validity and authority of the whole word of God for every area of life.

He writes in the introduction, "What is the calling of God's covenant people in history? What is the kingdom of God and how does it manifest itself? What does the reign of God look like and how are we to discern God working? What is the relationship between faith and public morality and policy? What should be the relationship between church and state? Is religious pluralism a biblically compatible and workable theology of state? Does the church have a future in history? Are Christians called to transform cultures? In short, what is the mission of God and what part do we have to play? These questions have become increasingly pertinent for the church today, especially in the Western world, because it is widely recognized that Western civilization is facing an epochal turning point."

The Mission of God is an exhortation to rediscover and return to a robust biblical faith in the lordship of Christ for every area of life.
