Featuring a brand-new cover design, this edition of N. T. Wright’s popular Following Jesus -- first published in 1995 -- includes a new preface in which Wright reflects on the book’s origin and significance for him personally and on its continued relevance to believers even though our global context has changed.
Wright first outlines the essential messages of six major New Testament books -- Hebrews, Colossians, Matthew, John, Mark, and Revelation -- looking in particular at their portrayal of Jesus and what he accomplished in his sacrificial death. In the second part of the book Wright takes six key New Testament themes — resurrection, rebirth, temptation, hell, heaven, and new life in a new world — and considers their significance for the lives of present-day disciples.
Cistercian Studies Quarterly "Lucid, lively, and provocative."— 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."
