Publisher's Description

In the midst of life's challenges, so often our faith feels small and weak. In this book one of the world's premier Bible teachers, N. T. Wright, reminds us that what matters is not so much our faith itself as Who our faith is in. Faith, says Wright, is like a window. The point is not for part of the wall to be made of glass. The point of a window is to allow us to see through it--and let light into the room! Faith allows us to see our situation and our own weakness in light of God who is powerful, holy and loving. Wright also looks at the character of the faith God calls us to. He unfolds how dependence, humility and mystery all have a role to play. God beckons us to lean on him as we seek to be constructive citizens of the world, to speak truth in love without hypocrisy and to risk submitting to one another in love. Wright doesn't ignore the messiness and difficulties of life, when hard times come and the unexpected knocks us down. He opens to us what faith means in times of trial and even in the face of death. Through it all he reminds us, it's not great faith we need: it is faith in a great God.

Author Bio

N. T. Wright, formerly bishop of Durham in England, is research professor of New Testament and early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He was formerly canon theologian of Westminster Abbey and dean of Lichfield Cathedral. He also taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities. Wright's full-scale works and are part of a projected six-volume series titled Christian Origins and the Question of God. Among his many other published works are and

Publisher's Weekly

In the modest introduction to this book, prolific author Wright notes that although it may be a period piece--it first saw the light as sermons published in 1978 --he hopes it makes the point that it is "God himself who counts, not our perceptions or understanding of him, not our faith or our rhetoric or our pilgrimage." Now a professor of New Testament at the University of St. Andrews and author of Justification and numerous other scholarly works, Wright is well-known for scholarship heavily rooted in a straightforward reading of scriptural texts. The collection is loosely divided into three sections, focused on the nature of God, how scriptural characters like Paul and Philemon and others live out that faith in the world, and diverse ways in which faith in the God of the Bible can equip believers to meet life's challenges. To say that this volume is scintillating would be a stretch; Wright's early work sometimes verges on pedantic. But his fans who want a well-researched and traditional approach to the sacred texts they hear in church will not be disappointed. (Nov.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    This review was written for Small Faith-Great God.
    Wright's book was written with a pastor's heat. He defines faith and shows from Scripture believers who lived a life of faith in Christ. He explains how we can overcome obstacles in the Christian life by appropriating our faith in an unseen God.

    I thought the book contained excellent theological content along with solid godly and Biblical application. Wright did an excellent job of making this book accessible to the layperson.
