Overview

The bishop, Bible scholar, modern heir to C. S. 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 Gospel means good news. But if the message has been around for 2,000 years, what makes it significant today? What’s so “good” about stories involving damnation, violence, and a God who sacrifices his only son?

Noted Bible scholar N.T. Wright shows us how Christians today have lost sight of what the “good news” of the gospel really is. In Simply Good News, he takes us back in time to reveal how the people of the first-century—the gospel’s original audience—would have received Jesus’ message. He offer a clear and thoughtful analysis of what the “good news” really is, and applies it to our lives today, revealing its power to transform us.

SIMPLY GOOD NEWS shows us how much Jesus changed the world and how the world became a different place, through His life, death and resurrection. This is the good news that this book delivers to us. Through the Gospels, we learn and share in God’s plans and purpose for us. We are shaped by the Gospels and their messages to us to become the people that God intended us to be, through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Good News.
