Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
-- Lawrence Cunningham in America
"A beautiful meditative work on Christian discipleship."

-- Christian Library Journal
"The slender size of this book belies its deep content. . . . A book to be read, reread, pondered, and lived."

-- Publishers Weekly
"Many unarguably sound insights."

Anglican Journal
"Encouraging, startling, unnerving—but always inviting.... The richly biblical fruit of much working through of "the meaning of the life and death of Jesus and the gift to his people of the Spirit" in the modern world.... Tom Wright offers insights valuable to Christians across the spectrum between literalism and mere metaphor in their view of Scripture."
