N.T. Wright’s stellar book Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church (hereafter SBH) is only $1.99 (e-book only).
If you haven’t yet read Wright and are wondering where to begin (or even, “what’s the big deal about Wright anyway?”), SBH is a great place to start. Largely drawn and reworked from his heftier tome Resurrection of the Son of God, SBH is wonderfully accessible and equally readable.
Have you ever asked:
What’s the big deal about Jesus’ resurrection?
How do I live every day in light of Jesus’ resurrection?
What will happen to me, i.e. body and soul, when I die? Exactly what am I waiting for, anyway?
And how should I live in the meantime?
Yes? Then stop reading this and buy the book! (You can thank me later.)
