Product Description

Why is justice fair? Why do we crave relationships? Why are so many people pursuing spirituality? For two thousand years Christianity has claimed to answer these mysteries, and in Simply Christian, renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop N. T. Wright demonstrates that it still does so today.

Like C. S. Lewis in his classic Mere Christianity, Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no predisposition to and perhaps even some negativity toward religion in general and Christianity in particular. Simply Christian serves as a straightforward introduction for those unfamiliar with the faith, and a source of thoughtful, accessible scholarship for everyone.

N. T. Wright is Bishop of Durham for the Church of England. He is one of today's leading theologians and author of Jesus and the Victory of God, which is widely regarded as one of the most significant studies in the contemporary "Third Quest" of the historical Jesus. He taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities. Among his many published works are The Challenge of Jesus, The Meaning of Jesus (co-authored with Marcus Borg), and What Saint Paul Really Said.

"Fresh, engaging, and highly readable, Tom Wright has the gift of being both profound and as simple as needs be. Simply Christian lives up to its title -- an invaluable guide for seekers and doubters as well as believers."

- Os Guinness, author of Unspeakable: Facing Up to the Challenge of Faith

--Dallas Willard, professor of philosophy, University of Southern California, and author of The Divine Conspiracy

Why do we expect justice? Why do we crave spirituality? Why are we attracted to beauty? Why are relationships often so painful? And how will the world be made right? These are not simply perennial questions all generations must struggle with, but, according to N. T. Wright, are the very echoes of a voice we dimly perceive but deeply long to hear. In fact, these questions take us to the heart of who God is and what He wants from us.

For two thousand years, Christianity has claimed to solve these mysteries, and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still can today. Not since C. S. Lewis's classic summary of the faith, Mere Christianity, has such a wise and thorough scholar taken the time to explain to anyone who wants to know what Christianity really is and how it is practiced. Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no knowledge of (and perhaps even some aversion to) religion in general and Christianity in particular.

Simply Christian walks the reader through the Christian faith step by step and question by question. With simple yet exciting and accessible prose, Wright challenges skeptics by offering explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled dilemmas, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith. For anyone who wants to travel beyond the controversies that can obscure what the Christian faith really stands for, this simple book is the perfect vehicle for that journey.
