Many Christians believe our future in heaven is all that really matters. But that's not what the Bible teaches. In this six-session small group Bible study (guide sold separately), premier Bible scholar N. T. Wright brings you inside the Scriptures to grasp the full, breathtaking hope Jesus offers the world, and its impact on your life today.
Gain an exciting new vision for your life on earth in light of your future in heaven. Wonderful as is the promise of heaven, a glorious hereafter is just part of what salvation is about.
What about today? Jesus called his followers the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Your life here and now is of tremendous consequence, and what you believe about the future has a direct impact on how you live in the present.
In six transforming, faith-inspiring sessions, premiere biblical scholar N. T. Wright opens your eyes to the amazing full scope of what God's Word has to say about the world to come and the world that is.
Filled with discussion questions, thoughts for reflection, and ideas for personal application, this study guide will help you get the most out of each session as you explore such questions as What is heaven really like? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get there? What hope does the gospel hold for this present life? In what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us?
Surprised by Hope provides a clearer vision both of the future and of God's kingdom at hand today. This study provides individual and group activities, additional background material, and between-session personal studies that will enhance your experience of the video sessions.

Rodd Umlauf2 Stars Out Of 5September 7, 2010Rodd UmlaufAfter going through the first session, I realized that one must also have the Participants Guide which is not included and must be ordered separately. There is no way to properly view the series until I obtain the guide. Christian Book Distributors did not make this clear in the catalog. Since the Participants Guide is required for proper viewing, it should have been included by CBD as one combined product.
Jerie Messer5 Stars Out Of 5August 26, 2010Jerie MesserWright is just a warm, compelling speaker. This dvd makes the viewer feel as though they are having a personal converstion with him. The study guide that goes with is also appears to be extremely well done and very useful. Will be using these materials in an adult class soon.
Greg Robinson5 Stars Out Of 5June 15, 2010Greg RobinsonWe just ran a six week course using this DVD and I can't speak highly enough about it. It is well organized and is valuable for anyone who attended one session or all of them, as each individual session can stand alone. I agree with Newsweek that Wright is the outstanding theologian of our time.
