Athoughtful and provocative collection-in the vein of the intellectual spiritualclassic The Weight of Glory-from N. T. Wright, the influential Bishop,Bible scholar, and bestselling author widely regarded as a modern C. S. Lewis

Anunusual combination of scholar, churchman, and leader, N. T. Wright-hailed by Newsweekas "the world's leading New Testament scholar"-is not only incrediblyinsightful but conveys his knowledge in terms that excite and inspire Christianleaders worldwide, allowing them to see the Bible from a fresh viewpoint. Inthis challenging and stimulating collection of popular essays, sermons, andtalks, Wright provides a series of case studies which explore how the Bible canbe applied to some of the most pressing contemporary issues facing us,including:

  • Why it is possible to love the Bible and affirm evolution
  • Why women should be allowed to be ordained
  • Where Christians today have lost focus, and why it is important for them to engage in politics-and why that involvement benefits everyone
  • Why the Christian belief in heaven means we should be at the forefront of the environmental movement
  • And much more

Helpful,practical, and wise, Surprised by Scripture invites readers to examinetheir own hearts and minds and presents new models for understanding how toaffirm the Bible in today's world-as well as new ideas and renewed energy fordeepening our faith and engaging with the world around us.
