In em Simply Jesus em bestselling author and leading Bible scholar N T Wright summarizes years of modern Biblical scholarship and models how Christians can best retell the story of Jesus today In a style similar to C S Lewis s popular works Wright breaks down the barriers that prevent Christians from fully engaging with the story of Jesus For believers confronting the challenge of connecting with their faith today and for readers of Timothy Keller s em The Reason for God em Wright s em Simply Jesus em offers a provocative new picture of how to understand who Jesus was and how Christians should relate to him today, New Testament scholar N T Wright reveals how we have been misreading the Gospels for centuries powerfully restoring the lost central story of the Scripture that the coronation of God through the acts of Jesus was the climax of human history Wright fills the gaps that centuries of misdirection have opened up in our collective spiritual story tracing a narrative from Eden to Jesus to today Wright s powerful re reading of the Gospels helps us re align the focus of our spiritual beliefs which have for too long been focused on the afterlife Instead the forgotten story of the Gospels reveals why we should understand that our real charge is to sustain and cooperating with God s kingdom here and now Echoing the triumphs of em Simply Christian em and em The Meaning of Jesus em Wright s em How God Became King em is required reading for any Christian searching to understand their mission in the world today br, Why do we expect justice Why do we crave spirituality Why are we attracted to beauty Why are relationships often so painful And how will the world be made right These are not simply perennial questions all generations must struggle with but according to N T Wright are the very echoes of a voice we dimly perceive but deeply long to hear In fact these questions take us to the heart of who God is and what He wants from us br br For two thousand years Christianity has claimed to solve these mysteries and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still can today Not since C S Lewis s classic summary of the faith Mere Christianity has such a wise and thorough scholar taken the time to explain to anyone who wants to know what Christianity really is and how it is practiced Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up assuming that the reader has no knowledge of and perhaps even some aversion to religion in general and Christianity in particular br br Simply Christian walks the reader through the Christian faith step by step and question by question With simple yet exciting and accessible prose Wright challenges skeptics by offering explanations for even the toughest doubt filled dilemmas leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith For anyone who wants to travel beyond the controversies that can obscure what the Christian faith really stands for this simple book is the perfect vehicle for that journey, From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries what is our purpose As Christians what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral It s easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now br br Wright dispels the common misconception that Christian living is nothing more than a checklist of dos and don ts Nor is it a prescription to follow your heart wherever it may lead Instead After You Believe reveals the Bible s call for a revolution a transformation of character that takes us beyond our earthly pursuit of money sex and power into a virtuous state of living that allows us to reflect God and live more worshipful fulfilling lives br br We are all spiritual seekers intuitively knowing there is more to life than we suspect This is a book for anyone who is hoping there is something more while we re here on Earth There is We are being called to join the revolution and Wright insightfully encourages readers to find new purpose and clarity by taking us on an eye opening journey through key biblical passages that promise to radically alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives
