A noted Christian scholar and Anglican bishop explains what Christianity is and how it can help us address the most troubling issues of the twenty-first century. 30,000 first printing.

Publishers Description

Why do we expect justice? Why do we crave spirituality? Why are we attracted to beauty? Why are relationships often so painful? And how will the world be made right? These are not simply perennial questions all generations must struggle with, but, according to N. T. Wright, are the very echoes of a voice we dimly perceive but deeply long to hear. In fact, these questions take us to the heart of who God is and what He wants from us.

For two thousand years, Christianity has claimed to solve these mysteries, and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still can today. Not since C. S. Lewis's classic summary of the faith, Mere Christianity, has such a wise and thorough scholar taken the time to explain to anyone who wants to know what Christianity really is and how it is practiced. Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no knowledge of (and perhaps even some aversion to) religion in general and Christianity in particular.

Simply Christian walks the reader through the Christian faith step by step and question by question. With simple yet exciting and accessible prose, Wright challenges skeptics by offering explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled dilemmas, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith. For anyone who wants to travel beyond the controversies that can obscure what the Christian faith really stands for, this simple book is the perfect vehicle for that journey.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A modern day CS Lewis  Mar 29, 2007
N.T. Wright is is a renowned New Testament scholar. Though he has written extensively for academia, he is also a great speaker and preacher. And he has a sincere calling to interpret Christian faith to the modern world, to those who have drifted away, to those who might be dubious. This book is an engaging conversation about the essentials of Christianity - our passion for God, justice, and hope, God's long engagement with us and the world, the gift of Jesus, the presence of the Spirit, and our life in realtionship and in service with God. This book is thoughtful, easy to read, and promotes honest reflection and discussion. It is a gracious explication of Christian faith for these complex times.
Excellent Book  Mar 28, 2007
N.T. Wright provides a powerful work in the spirit of C.S. Lewis's classic Mere Christianity. For all of those who, like me, enjoy Lewis, Wright offers a more comprehensive and biblically consistent tour of Christian ideas.

He begins by identifying four things that make us suspect that this world is not all that there is. Our desire for justice, quest for spirituality, hunger for relationships, and love of beauty all leave us seeking something that we have never actually seen. In fact, we find it hard to express what we are seeking.

Wright then proceeds to unfold the story of Christianity and shows how it promises to fulfill these four desires and so much more. His presentation is necessarily brief and he is honest enough to admit his own limitations. But a thoughtful reader may find that Wright's presentation of Christianity builds a framework by which virtually all of our questions about life have real answers (if sometimes incomplete).

By the end of the book, Wright shows how the Christian story invites people to join in God's New Creation, which He has promised and ratified through the resurrection of Jesus. The implications of this New Creation are staggering and sometimes demand a complete rethinking of life.

It's worth it.
Thoughtful Theology  Mar 27, 2007
I am a big fan of N.T. Wright. So when I saw this book, I had to purchase it. However, I found the opening chapter a bit dry and frankly, put the book aside for sometime. But now, giving it a second chance and plowing past the first 50 pages, I have found this work fascinating. N.T. Wright is at his best when he draws together his vast biblical knowledge into a simple message that explains the development of the Christian faith. His description of God and his apology for Christianity is excellent. He does a marvelous job explaining why the Hebrew Scriptures are relevant to the New Testament. This one is worth the time and will enlighten your understanding of Christianity. This is great for those exploring Christianity for the first time or for the life long Christian in need of deeper knowledge of the Christian faith.
It's that simple?  Feb 17, 2007
If this guy has such a wonderful ability to explain the complex simply, why don't the reviewers manage to say what his main point is?
