N. T. Wright, one of the world’s leading Bible scholars, is the chair of New Testament and Early Christianity at the School of Divinity at the University of St. Andrews, an Anglican bishop, and bestselling author. Featured on ABC News, The Colbert Report, Dateline, and Fresh Air, Wright is the award-winning author of Simply Good News, Simply Jesus, Simply Christian, Surprised by Hope, How God Became King, Scripture and the Authority of God, Surprised by Scripture, and The Case for the Psalms, as well as the recent translation of the New Testament The Kingdom New Testament and the much heralded series Christian Origins and the Question of God.
Scholarly, accessible, insightful and challenging . . . an excellent and provocative book.
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.
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.
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.
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.
