Study Scripture with N.T. Wright! Christianity isn't a philosophy, a set of ideas. It isn't a path of spirituality or a rule of life. It isn't a political agenda. It includes and indeed gives energy to all those things, but at its very heart it is something different. It is good news about an event which has happened, an event because of which the world can never be the same again. And those who believe it and live by it will never be the same again either. This is Paul's message to the Corinthians-and to us today. These studies on 1 Corinthians guide us in leading, loving and worshipping differently as those being transformed by the resurrected Jesus.
