Publisher's Description

In this thoughtful follow-up to Simply Christian, today’s leading Bible scholar, Anglican bishop, and acclaimed author uses the Gospel of John to reveal how Christianity presents a compelling and relevant explanation for our world.

N. T. Wright argues that every world view must explain seven “signposts,” indicators inherent to humanity: Justice, Spirituality, Relationships, Beauty, Freedom, Truth, and Power. 

If we do not live up to these ideals, our societies and individual lives become unbalanced, creating anger and frustration—negative emotions that divide us from ourselves and from God, he contends. Using the Gospel of John as his source, Wright shows how Christianity defines each signpost and illuminates why we so often see them as being "broken" and unattainable. 

Drawing on the wisdom of the Gospels, Wright explains why these signposts are fractured and damaged and how Christianity provides the vision, guidance, and hope for making them whole once again, ultimately healing ourselves and our world. 

Author Bio

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.

Editorial Reviews

“More like a fast-paced sermon than a lecture, Wright's insights into John's account of Jesus and human life flow lucidly to the reader through analogies that are pertinent, illustrations that are contemporary, and a conviction that Jesus is the bearer of really, really ‘good news.’"
“An instant classic! I can think of no better book for those who are struggling to make sense of the world and our place within it. I will be recommending this book for many years to come!”
"A rich and encouraging book. With his great theological and interpretive erudition, Wright shows that our desire for goods like justice, love, and truth isn’t futile. Broken Signposts will deepen readers’ understanding of God’s kingship, the unity of Scripture, and the nature of Christian engagement in the life of the world."
“Wright explores a universal human experience that is difficult to express—the sense that the world ought to be different, it ought to be better, as broken signposts pointing to transcendent realities . . . a readable apologia for the Christian faith. Recommended.”
“Some writers are perceptive commentators on human affairs. Some are perceptive interpreters of Scripture. In this book, Wright is both. His interweaving of these two strands is masterful; his exegesis is often amazing. This reader had no intimation of the richness and subtlety of John’s Gospel that Wright brings to light.” 
“Wright paints an evocative picture of the intersection of our yearning for redemption with the Jesus revealed in John’s Gospel. Wright’s charcoal sketch of our fractured glimpses of truth, beauty, and freedom (among others) is richly overlaid with lush brush strokes of the Word made flesh.”
