SYNOPSIS : The renowned scholar, Anglican bishop, and bestselling author widely considered to be the heir to C. S. Lewis contemplates the central event at the heart of the Christian faithβ€”Jesus’ crucifixionβ€”arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in transforming our understanding of its meaning. In The Day the Revolution Began, N. T. Wright once again challenges commonly held Christian beliefs as he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope. Demonstrating the rigorous intellect and breathtaking knowledge that have long defined his work, Wright argues that Jesus’ death on the cross was not only to absolve us of our sins; it was actually the beginning of a revolution commissioning the Christian faithful to a new vocationβ€”a royal priesthood responsible for restoring and reconciling all of God’s creation. Wright argues that Jesus’ crucifixion must be understood within the much larger story of God’s purposes to bring heaven and earth together. The Day the Revolution Began offers a grand picture of Jesus’ sacrifice and its full significance for the Christian faith, inspiring believers with a renewed sense of mission, purpose, and hope, and reminding them of the crucial role the Christian faith must play in protecting and shaping the future of the world.

SYNOPSIS : In The Day the Revolution Began Tom Wright invites you to consider the full meaning of the event at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus’ crucifixion. As he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope, Wright once again challenges commonly held beliefs, this time arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in reshaping our understanding of the Cross. With his characteristic rigour and incisiveness, he goes back to the New Testament to show that Jesus’ death not only releases us from the guilt and power of sin, but is nothing less than the beginning of a world-wide revolution that continues to this day – a revolution that creates and energizes a movement responsible for restoring and reconciling the whole of God’s creation. The Day the Revolution Began will take you to a new level in your appreciation of the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice: opening up its powerful and amazing implications, inspiring you with a renewed sense of purpose and hope, and reminding you of the crucial role you can play in the world-transforming movement that Jesus started.

SYNOPSIS : At four in the morning on April 19, 1975, a line of British soldiers stared across the village green of Lexington, Massachusetts, at a crowd of seventy-seven Amercican militiamen. A shot rang out, and the Redcoats replied with a devastating volley. But the day that started so well for the king's troops would end in catastrophe: seventy-three British soldiers dead, two hundred wounded, and the survivors chased back into Boston by the angry colonists. Drawing on diaries, letters, official documents, and memoirs, William H. Hallahan vividly captures the drama of those tense twenty-four hours and shows how they decided the fate of two nations.

SYNOPSIS : The death of Jesus is the foundation of our faith, but what do we mean when we confess that Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture? N.T. Wright's book The Day the Revolution Began offers compelling answers to that question. His book is nothing less than a game changer. Just as Wright's book Surprised By Hope changed our view of the end, so this book is changing our view of the cross. This reader's guide offers a clear summary of Wright's interpretation of the cross in the context of both history and the big story told by the Bible. Using this reader's guide prayerfully will open up vistas of the love of God as you see the revolutionary cross with new eyes. Such a renewed vision will stir your thinking, prompt new conversations about the cross, cause your love for Christ to grow, and equip the Church to carry forth her gospel-shaped mission. What people are saying about N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross: In this reader's guide Derek Vreeland leads us through one of Wright's most important works. Providing the necessary background, locating the central themes, and giving the theological history, he unfolds Wright's majestic treatment of the cross of Christ in a way readers can follow quickly. In so doing, this careful student of N.T. Wright has made it possible for the rest of us students to dive more deeply into what God has accomplished in Christ's death on a cross. I highly recommend N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross. -DAVID FITCH, B.R. Lindner Chair of Evangelical Theology, Northern Seminary, author of Faithful Presence Like a skilled explorer and careful guide, Derek Vreeland once again helps people climb Mount N.T. Wright. Within the pages of N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross, Derek helps us see that the cross is so much more than we realize at first glance. This reader's guide is a great treasure chest that will bring to light the unsearchable riches of Christ. -DERWIN GRAY, Lead Pastor, Transformation Church, author of The High Definition Leader Derek Vreeland is among the most attentive readers of N.T. Wright that I know. More importantly, he stands at the intersection of academic theology and pastoral ministry. To be conversant in the language of the academy and the vernacular of the pew is a skill that is critically important if the work of theology is going to feed the flock of Jesus. With N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross, Derek Vreeland has made important developments in atonement theology accessible to the lay reader. As such, it is a timely and most welcome book! -BRIAN ZAHND, Lead Pastor, Word of Life Church, author of Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God There are few theologians who are able to set crucial Christian doctrines within the grand sweep of the Bible's story like N.T. Wright. Yet it is easy to get lost or confused within a big and complex story. Even where there is a trail, it helps to have a guide. Derek Vreeland is the perfect guide into Wright's expansive work on the cross of Christ. A pastor and a scholar, Vreeland has not simply summarized Wright; he has translated him into our own context, making these vital truths come alive for us as pastors and as followers of Jesus the crucified and risen Lord. -GLENN PACKIAM, Associate Senior Pastor, New Life Church, author of Discover the Mystery of Faith Derek Vreeland brilliantly articulates and unpacks the theological genius of N.T. Wright. Vreeland offers a concise roadmap to The Day the Revolution Began in a way that is accessible for emerging theologians, pastors, and your everyday lay leader. -TARA BETH LEACH, Senior Pastor, PazNaz, author of Emboldened: A Vision for Empowering Women in Ministry

SYNOPSIS : For years Christians have been asking, "If you died tonight, do you know where you would go?" It turns out that many believers have been giving the wrong answer. It is not heaven. Award-winning author N. T. Wright outlines the present confusion about a Christian's future hope and shows how it is deeply intertwined with how we live today. Wright, who is one of today's premier Bible scholars, asserts that Christianity's most distinctive idea is bodily resurrection. He provides a magisterial defense for a literal resurrection of Jesus and shows how this became the cornerstone for the Christian community's hope in the bodily resurrection of all people at the end of the age. Wright then explores our expectation of "new heavens and a new earth," revealing what happens to the dead until then and what will happen with the "second coming" of Jesus. For many, including many Christians, all this will come as a great surprise. Wright convincingly argues that what we believe about life after death directly affects what we believe about life before death. For if God intends to renew the whole creationβ€”and if this has already begun in Jesus's resurrectionβ€”the church cannot stop at "saving souls" but must anticipate the eventual renewal by working for God's kingdom in the wider world, bringing healing and hope in the present life. Lively and accessible, this book will surprise and excite all who are interested in the meaning of life, not only after death but before it.

SYNOPSIS : At last! A new book by our most popular theologian written for anyone interested in popular theology - whether believer, agnostic or atheist. Confronts head-on the most common objections to belief Compelling answers to FAQs about the gospel: Why is it 'good news'? Who did Jesus think he was? And who is 'God', anyway? Written by a world-renowned scholar and communicator, hailed by Newsweek as 'the world's leading New Testament scholar' Ideal for all who want to reaffirm their faith, as well as finding more convincing ways of commending it to others The Gospel means good news, but what makes it news? If the message has been around for 2,000 years, what could possibly be newsworthy about it? And what makes it good? Surely not the stories we hear of damnation, violence, and an angry God. Tom Wright believes many Christians have lost sight of what the 'good news' of the gospel really is. In Simply Good News, he shows how a first-century audience would have received the gospel message, what the 'good news' means for us today and how it can transform our lives.

SYNOPSIS : It has been slowly dawning on me over many years that there is a fundamental problem deep at the heart of Christian faith and practice as I have known it... we have all forgotten what the four gospels are about.' With this surprising and radical assertion, highly respected theologian and former Bishop of Durham Tom Wright launches a groundbreaking work sure to shake up and revolutionise much Christian thinking on the very heart and meaning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Tom Wright leads us, intelligently and graciously to seeing the new reality of the gospel story; one that is so explosive that the church in many generations has found it too much to take and so has watered it down rather than allowing its full impact to be felt.
