Renowned for his brilliant and influential New Testament scholarship, Tom Wright here turns his attention to how Scripture can be applied to the great ethical and political problems of our day. This thoughtful, provocative book compares to C S Lewis at this best!

A thoughtful and provocative book, in the vein of C. S. Lewis's classic The Weight of Glory Tom Wright was recently acclaimed by Newsweek as 'the world's leading New Testament scholar' For all who appreciated his Surprised by Scripture and would like to learn more about how biblical principles can help us to address pressing contemporary concerns. What has Christianity to do with power? Why must the church remind those in authority of their responsibilities? What can Christians do to act as the voice of the voiceless? How can speaking of God in public help to create new structures of international justice and peace? These are the central questions running through Tom Wright's latest book, in which he demonstrates the many ways in which faithful exegesis of scripture can throw fresh light - God's light - on the great philosophical and ethical problems of our day.
