Simply Good News

Full Product Description

  • Want a deep look at why the gospels are called 'good news'?
  • This rich read is a clear and reasoned guide to Jesus' sacrifice for us
  • You'll better understand the immeasurable gift that God's good news is

In Simply Good News, Tom Wright presents you with a fresh look at the Gospel, explaining why Jesus' message really is "good news" and why it is even more timely and transforming today than at any time in Christian history.

The former bishop, respected Bible scholar and modern heir to C. S. Lewis explores why this 2000 year message is still significant today in a world unrecognisable to the gospel's hearers. In this work Tom Wright yet again proves his worth as one of the church's most popular evangelists and effective communicators.

Continuing the pilgrimage he began with Simply Christian and Simply Jesus, Tom Wright travels onward to reveal why the biblical accounts of Jesus are known as 'The Gospels'; a name which literally means 'the good news'.

In the pages of this direct and clearly written work, he explains what is it that makes Jesus' life and words meaningful today. He asks: what is so "good" about all those events and stories involving damnation, violence and a God who apparently sacrifices his only son?

Today's most readable and forthright Bible scholar, N.T. Wright, argues that Christians today have lost sight of what the "good news" of the gospel is really all about.

In this follow on work to his highly acclaimed 'simply' titles, Simply Good News will take you back in time to discover how the people of the first-century - the gospel's original audience - would have received Jesus' message.

The author leads you on a characteristically clear and well thought out journey through the "good news" and shows how you can apply its meaning to your life today. With biblically sound and easy to follow teaching, Tom Wright reveals anew the timeless power of the Gospel to transform individuals, communities, nations and the whole of mankind.

Simply Good News by Tom Wright was published by SPCK Publishing in March 2014 and is our 2863rd best seller. The ISBN for Simply Good News is 9780281073030.
