Tom Wright for Everyone
Full Product Description
Stephen Kuhrt has written "Tom Wright for Everyone" so that the theology of Tom Wright can be practically applied to the local Church. Kuhrt masterfully summarises Tom Wright's theology so that readers can become engaged into the implications that arise from the publications.
Kuhrt's summary of Tom Wight's theology manges to highlight the weaknesses of contemporary evangelicalism, including:
The nature of the Christian hope;
The significance of the resurrection of Jesus;
The lack of a convincing theological basis for holistic mission;
Treatments of sin, evil and the atonement;
Approaches to the Bible and attitudes towards biblical scholarship;
Ambivalence towards 'the good things of creation', the sacraments, and the Church.
Towards the end of the book, Kuhrt switches his focus to comprehensively describe how his own parish has put Tom Wright's theology into practice. Kuhrt passionately discusses how an integrated Biblical theology can improve the Church and help it meet the challenges of modern culture.
"Tom Wright For Everyone" is a thought-provoking book that is fantastic resource for leaders of the church, students of theology, and Christian social activists.

Tom Wright for EveryoneJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Kuhrt writes “The theology of Tom Wright has, therefore, emerged at a really vital moment for the Church, and yet.....for the sake of the worship, mission and unity of the Church in the twenty-first century, it is vital that this proper engagement occurs.” In this helpful title Anglican Vicar, Stephen Kuhrt offers a robust and unique engagement with the work of N.T. Wright, with a foundation concern about how many within the church have not fully engaged with the perspectives and challenge he brings.
The book is constructed in two main parts – the first section gives an introduction and summary of major themes in Wright’s theology. The second section focuses on how Wright’s theology might be applied in a local context and this integration is the core strength of the book and the reason why so many people will find it helpful. It is readable, enjoyable, and helpful with the 34-page summary of Tom Wright's theology being particularly potent. The closing call, to resist fear and make the engagement that is necessary for this theology to have a real and telling impact in our local communities, is compelling. Deep, warm and applicable!
