$14.99

Not since C. S. Lewis' Mere Christianity has there been such a thrilling attempt to re-express the heart of the Christian faith and the transformation it offers to every area of personal and social life.

SIMPLY CHRISTIAN is essential reading for anyone who wants to consider the real fundamentals of Christianity or is intrigued by its claims about the place of justice, beauty and love in our daily lives.

Written in a lively and accessible style, though rooted in solid scholarship, this book describes the exciting relevance of the Bible and the Christian story for the contemporary world.

It is laid out helpfully in three sections. The first opens with the frustrated longings of humanity for justice, spirituality, relationships and beauty: why are things like this, do they have to be so and can life be lived differently? Tom Wright then sets out the central Christian belief about God and his creation, and explores the biblical analysis of what's wrong with the world. He explains God's plan for its renewal, and the central importance of Jesus. In the final section, he explores what it means to follow Jesus, to be energized by the Holy Spirit and to advance God's plan for our world.

"Brilliant Bishop Wright is one of God's best gifts to our decaying Western church, and would-be learners and teachers of the faith will gain hugely from these fascinating pages." - J.I. PACKER, professor of theology, Regent College.

Simply beautiful
4 stars By Xuan, Jan 07 2013
'Simply Christian' by Bishop Tom Wright is a wonderful book that is thought-provoking and deep, as well as accessible and direct. I was drawn in immediately by the conversational and lively tone that guides the reader through a wide range of topics to do with humanity and Christianity. 
Yes, this was a very 'human' book - as much a meditation on humanity as our need for God and the importance of Faith. Bishop Wright peppers his writing with his own anecdotes and musings, drawing from history and the Bible to make a very involving and interesting read. 
If you're looking for a book that approaches Christianity with a simple heart - We need God - then this is the book for you. 
Highly recommended!
