From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries—what is our purpose? As Christians, what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral? It’s easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now.

Wright dispels the common misconception that Christian living is nothing more than a checklist of dos and don’ts. Nor is it a prescription to ‘follow your heart’ wherever it may lead. Instead, After You Believe reveals the Bible’s call for a revolution—a transformation of character that takes us beyond our earthly pursuit of money, sex, and power into a virtuous state of living that allows us to reflect God and live more worshipful, fulfilling lives.

We are all spiritual seekers, intuitively knowing there is more to life than we suspect. This is a book for anyone who is hoping there is something more while we’re here on Earth. There is. We are being called to join the revolution, and Wright insightfully encourages readers to find new purpose and clarity by taking us on an eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promise to radically alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by David | 1/27/2014

    " Wow. Practical in both a brass-tacks way and a way that made me quite uncomfortable as a liberal/progressive type who sometimes likes to hang out in the abstract-o-sphere. Wright is imminently sensible about the fact that Christian faith is at its core STORIED faith, and how we become ethical is not just by cogitation on WWJD but primarily by entering more deeply into the life of the church, ie, the believing community. "

    " I really like N. T. Wright and this books simply added to that foregone conclusion. It is brilliant again. I love the dry British humor as well. Again, a logical feast showing the important role of good living without the legalistic baggage. Very well done. I am always blessed by his logic and the building of such a coherent argument. "

    " Good theology. N.T. Wright never suffers from a lack of content. That said, the book does move a bit slow and, for the first third, I began to feel as if he were trying really hard to simply make a single point. The last half of the book, however, was much more useful and insightful. Wright's greatest work almost always occurs when he is dissecting specific pieces of Scripture. "

    " Very good. But I was disappointed at the ending as I hoped he would take me further. Maybe it was just me "
