"Simply outstanding. It will confirm, challenge, and deepen your grasp of Christian faith and practice."--Christianity Today
Christian scholar and Anglican bishop N. T. Wright's best-known work, written in the tradition of C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity but for today's generation--a rigorous and mind-expanding explanation of the essence of Christianity and why people believe--is available in paperback for the first time.
For two thousand years, Christianity has claimed to answer the mystery of human existence. Renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop N. T. Wright--the award-winning author Newsweek hails as "the world's leading New Testament scholar"--argues that the Christian faith still holds the answers today.
Like C. S. Lewis did in his classic Mere Christianity, Wright makes the case for Christian faith for modern readers, whether you are a believer, an agnostic, schooled in a different spiritual tradition, or are a skeptical atheist suspicious of organized religion. Using clear, simple language to convey a profound message, he walks you through the Christian faith step-by-step and question by question, and reveals how basic inquiries such as Why is justice fair? Why are so many people pursuing spirituality? Why do we crave relationship? And why is beauty so beautiful? take us into the mystery of God and his plan for us and leave believers with a reason for renewed faith.
Provocative and insightful, with a discussion guide for individuals and groups, Simply Christian offers answers to expand and guide all of our lives.
