Wright has never been more eloquent and persuasive than in this book that caps a long, productive theological career. — Booklist (starred review)
Scholarly, accessible, insightful and challenging . . . an excellent and provocative book. — Christianity Magazine
The prolific Christian apologist N.T. Wright now devotes an entire volume, How God Became King to this trendy subject. Wrights insistence that Christianity has got it all wrong seems to mark a turning point for the serious rethinking of heaven. — The Washington Post
We often read the beginning and the end of the Gospels without the large middle where the message of the kingdom rings loud and clear. I recommend to everyone who wants to understand the Gospels message in a way that will not only inform the intellect but also transform life. — Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
Tom Wright continues to urge and prod and propose how the church can regain a kingdom footing and end its empire heritage. And, he shows us how we can reshape both what we think about Jesus and how we follow him in our world. — Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University
Wright is a scholar who writes as if the material he engages actually matters for the church and the world it lives in and has again done the church a great favor in presenting the gospel story as the story of God and his kingdom on earth. — Englewood Review of Books
