The bishop, Bible scholar, modern heir to C. S. Lewis, and revered author of Simply Christian and Simply Jesus offers a fresh look at the Gospel, explaining why Jesus’ message is good news and why it is more timely and transforming today than we realize.
The Gospel means good news. But if the message has been around for two thousand years, what makes it significant today? What’s so “good” about stories involving damnation, violence, and a God who sacrifices his only son?
Noted Bible scholar N. T. Wright shows us how Christians today have lost sight of what the “good news” of the Gospel really is. In Simply Good News, he takes us back in time to reveal how the people of the first century—the Gospel’s original audience—would have received Jesus’ message. He offers a clear and thoughtful analysis of what the “good news” really is and applies it to our lives today, revealing its power to transform us. Download and start listening now!
