This text answers the skepticism about the need for a historical understanding of Jesus and shows how this can affect Christian discipleship today. It explores Jesus’ preaching, his Messiahship and death, and his self-understanding in relation to God. The book goes on to ask: What does this imply? What should this mean for us? What, in fact, is the mission of the church grounded in this Jesus and this resurrection, to our postmodern world?

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

    This is a worthwhile book, and I especially liked the final 2 chapters where good advice is given in regards to the challenges of post-modernity. Since I have read recently Jesus and the Victory of God, I did appreciate the "summary" of that book - but thought that for those who hadn't read it the book may come across as a bit light on. I must admit I often find Wright's "shorter" books to be summaries of his larger ones - and thus often leaving you wanting more. I suppose that is a good thing for getting people into the larger books (which I thoroughly enjoy) but normally the larger books are targeted at a more academic audience. So I think this is a bit of a weakness. As always, I enjoy how the Author thinks and how he puts his arguments together :)
