A brilliant series of case studies on how to apply Scripture to the pressing issues of today. N T Wright covers such topics as science and religion, women in ministry, Christians in politics, environmentalism, and more!


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


An unusual combination of scholar, churchman, and leader, N. T. Wright-hailed by Newsweek as "the world's leading New Testament scholar"-is not only incredibly insightful, but conveys his knowledge in terms that excite and inspire Christian leaders worldwide, allowing them to see the Bible from a fresh viewpoint. In this challenging and stimulating collection of popular essays, sermons, and talks, Wright provide a series of case studies which explore how the Bible can be 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 examine their own hearts and minds and presents new models for understanding how to affirm the Bible in today's world-as well as new ideas and renewed energy for deepening our faith and engaging with the world around us.
