Product Description

There is no day more important than the one in which everything changed for every person on earth: the day of the Cross...The Day the Revolution Began. Here, Tom Wright focuses all his attention and thought to one moment in history, the crucifixion of Christ, and what the means for Christians the world over.

Tom Wright explores the historical meaning of the cross, as well as just how it was revolutionary, and why it had to be a cross in the first place. This is a deep dive that will cause you to see the cross in a whole new light.

Drawing on a lifetime of knowledge and experience opening the Bible for all manner of readers, Tom Wright’s newest book challenges our idea that we understand what happened when Jesus died. He argues that from the Reformation onwards, we have not done enough to clarify our understanding of the cross.

Airtight in its ideal, yet accessible to all readers, The Day the Revolution Began explores how Jesus death means more than just releasing us from sin. That is accomplished more than we ever give it credit for.

That the cross is indeed a complete revolution.

The book is not only a route to understanding the cross, but a calling for each and every reader to continue the work that started The Day the Revolution Began.

It’s a book of hope, inspiration, and understanding that will give your faith new colour and insight into itself.

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.
