Simply Jesus : Who He Was, What He Did, Why It Matters

Description

In Simply Jesus, renowned New Testament scholar Tom Wright sets out to answer three simple but vital questions about Jesus: who was he, what did he do and why does it matter? Perfect for those wanting a popular level entry point into Tom Wright's views on Scripture, Simply Jesus places Jesus firmly within his own context and shows how startlingly relevant he is to our own day as well.

The book starts with Tom explaining the key questions, why they matter, and why we today find them difficult to answer. He then goes on to say what he thinks Jesus' public career was all about, what he was trying to accomplish, and how he went about it. At the end of the book he sketches four ways in which people today have tried to understand the contemporary relevance of Jesus' inauguration of God's kingdom.

After reading Simply Jesus, readers will have a firmer biblical and theological grounding in exploring Who Jesus Was, What He Did, and Why it Matters.
