During the last decade N. T. Wright has often thought through the meaning of Jesus' death, resurrection, and gift to his people of the Spirit. Whether approaching these central events of the church's faith from within an academic setting or through the act of preaching. Wright has wrestled with what it means to be Christian in the modern world. This volume of thirteen powerful meditations and sermons challenges readers to reassess their own responses to Jesus' death, his resurrection, and the continuing influence of his Spirit on those who follow him today. In Part One Wright considers not the customary seven last words that Jesus spoke from the cross but, rather seven words that people spoke to the cross - people like Mary and the Roman centurion, who witnessed the crucifixion, and Pontius Pilate, who helped to instigate it. Part Two contains five sermons and one biblical exposition on such themes as the meaning of the resurrection, the call of God, and the nature of the presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
N.T.(Tom) Wright (D.Phil., University of Oxford) is Reseach Professor in Christian Origins at St Mary's College in the Divinity School of St Andrew's University, Scotalnd.

Once Canon Theologian of Westminster Abbey and dean of Lichfield Cathedral, he taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities.

Among his many other published works are The Original Jesus; What Saint Paul Really Said and The Climax of the Covenant. He is also co-author with Marcus Borg of The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions

Most recently he has released Surprised by Hope; Small Faith--Great God; Virtue Reborn and Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision.
