After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters
N. T. Wright

HarperOne, 2012

From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries—what is our purpose?

It's easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now. Wright dispels the common misconception that ...
  
  











  



  
The Lost World of Adam and Eve: Genesis 2-3 and the Human Origins Debate
John H. Walton

IVP Academic, 2015

For centuries the story of Adam and Eve has resonated richly through the corridors of art, literature and theology. But for most moderns, taking it at face value is incongruous. And even for many thinking Christians today who want to take seriously the authority of Scripture, insisting on a "literal" understanding of Genesis 2–3 looks painfully like a "tear here" strip between faith and science. How can Christians of good faith move forward? ...

N. T. Wright

HarperOne, 2008

Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong.

James (N. T. Wright for Everyone Bible Study Guides)
N. T. Wright

IVP Connect, 2012

Every generation in the church worries, rightly, about people who just glide along, seeming to enjoy what they hear in church but without it making any real difference. James faced exactly the same problem in the very first generation. So it's not surprising that translating belief into action--making sure faith is the real thing--is near the heart of his message. That kind of faith, he explains, is the faith that matters, the faith that ...

Lewis, and revered author of Simply Christian and Simply Jesus offers a fresh look at the Gospel, explaining why Jesus’ message is “good news” and why it is more timely and transforming today than we know.

The King Jesus Gospel: The Original Good News Revisited
Scot McKnight

Zondervan, 2011

Contemporary evangelicals have built a "salvation culture" but not a "gospel culture." Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. The book stands on four arguments: that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the Story of Israel in the saving Story of Jesus; that the gospel is ...

John (N. T. Wright for Everyone Bible Study Guides)
N. T. Wright

IVP Connect, 2009

When you read detective stories, you quickly learn that what may look like an irrelevant little detail may actually be the clue to solving the mystery.

And all the details in John are designed ultimately to come together. In these studies we discover the clues John gives that we might see even more clearly the ...

Paul: In Fresh Perspective
N. T. Wright

Fortress Press, 2009

"For me," says N.T.Wright, "there has been no more stimulating exercise, for the mind, the heart, the imagination and the spirit, than trying to think Paul's thoughts after him and constantly to be stirred up to fresh glimpses of God's ways and purposes with the world and with us strange human creatures."
