Product Description

We have grown used to and tired of the endless debating about Jesus in both the public and private sectors. What if all these debates have accomplished is to mask the real story of Jesus--who he was, what he did, and what it means now? What if even Jesus' defenders have been so blinded by their focus on defending the church's traditions that they have failed to grapple with what the New Testament really teaches?

World famous Bible scholar, Anglican bishop, and bestselling author N. T. Wright summarizes a lifetime of study of Jesus and the New Testament in order to present for a general audience who Jesus was and is. In the spirit of Christian classics such as C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity, Simply Jesus invites us to hear one of Christianity's most universally respected scholars introduce the story of the carpenter's son from Nazareth as if we were hearing it for the first time.

Step back, away from the noise, and the unnecessarily complex discussions, and encounter Jesus on the Bible's terms with the Bible's message.

Endorsements

Tom Wright is, as always, brilliant at distilling immense scholarship into vivid, clear and accessible form. This book is yet another of his great gifts to the worldwide church.
-Rowan Williams,
Archbishop of Canterbury

No one living today is writing more thoughtfully and compellingly about Christian theology than N.T. Wright. With Simply Jesus, he takes readers on an illuminating intellectual expedition to recover the Christian Messiah. If you have not read Wright, start now, and start with this book.
-Jon Meacham,
Author of American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White Houose

Tom Wright has a fresh way of presenting the story of Jesus, the one and only Savior and Lord of the four canonical Gospels. This book retrieves Jesus from the margins of contemporary ideologies and places him once again at the heart of biblical faith. A compelling read!
