Renewing our hope, 25 Jun. 2009
This is an important book, especially for those wondering how Christianity fits in with modern world views. Many Christians have got stuck in the medieval view which concentrates on getting to heaven when you die. Wright stresses that this is not the Bibilcal view - we are promised not "life after death" but resurrection to new life in a world made new. This means that what we do now in this present life contributes to bringing in the Kingdom of God.
The book is written in a style which is easy to follow. Sometimes it makes you laugh! But always Wright reminds us that the message of Jesus is alive and relevant to us today as in all ages.
