Product Description

What is the good news that Jesus himself announced and told his followers to announce as well? Most people, including many Christians, never ask themselves this question. We assume we understand the gospel because it seems so familiar and so entrenched. Those who know in theory that the gospel is good news, often fail to appreciate the significance of this fact.

In Simply Good News, bishop, noted biblical scholar, and revered author N.T. Wright offers a fresh look at the Gospel, explaining why Jesus' message is "good news" and why it is more timely and transforming today than we know.

Believing that today's Christians have lost sight of its true meaning, he takes us back in time to reveal how the gospel's original first-century audience would have received Jesus' message. In Simply Good News, Wright forwards a clear and thoughtful analysis of what the "good news" really is and how it applies to and can transform our lives today.

Editorial Reviews

“For those who are new to Wright, Simply Good News will offer a helpful introduction to and summary of . . . the work of an undoubtedly brilliant artist.”
Simply Good News is a potent reminder that the gospel is an announcement of a past event, and this ensures the future and transforms the present. In a world of competing allegiances and rivals for cultural dominance, Wright steps in to say, ‘Jesus is Lord.’”
“Wright’s books have overpowered both Lewis and Stott because he has expanded those studies and set it all in a firmer historical orientation.”
Simply Good News sets out to reorient and refocus the Christian faith by examining its central tenet: the gospel… His exegesis of Jesus’ words is thoughtful and accessible, offering concrete Biblical wisdom as to how we can live as good news people.”
“Wright’s got another masterful book under his belt with Simply Good News.”
“Takes aim at pious church-going Christians who cling to a naive but persistent belief--that Jesus’ teaching is all about getting your caboose into Heaven. . . . Wright is a giant among conservative Christian thinkers, often compared to C.S. Lewis in stature and influence.”
“Wright wipes off the dust of history and culture and finds that the good news of Jesus is more exciting, dynamic, and inspirational than what we have settled for. . . . Excellent scholarship expressed clearly and simply . . . a short gem.”
“Explains the nature of good news, the essence of what that good news is and is not, and what it means for the way we live now, think about God, and pray . . . readable and insightful, characterized by Wright’s familiar mixture of rich scholarship, vivid illustration, and contemporary application.”
“Clarifies what exactly the good news is, and why such an undertaking even matters . . . well-articulated.”
“Thoughtful and accessible, offering concrete Biblical wisdom as to how we can live as good news people.”
Praise for N. T. Wright:“Tom Wright is, as always, brilliant at distilling immense scholarship into vivid, clear and accessible form.”
“Wright’s direct style, reminiscent of C. S. Lewis’ writings, invites readers in but allows for internal argument.”
“When today’s leading New Testament theologian has something new to say about anything, readers pay attention.”
