Lent for Everyone: Matthew, Year A provides readers with an inspirational guide through the Lenten season, from Ash Wednesday through the week after Easter. Popular biblical scholar and author N. T. Wright provides his own Scripture translation, brief reflection, and a prayer for each day of the season, helping readers ponder how the text is relevant to their own lives. By the end of the book, readers will have been through the entirety of Matthew, along with Psalm readings for each Sunday. Suitable for both individual and group study and reflection, Wright’s Lenten devotional will help make Matthew’s gospel your own, thoughtfully and prayerfully, and your journey through Lent a period of discovery and growth.
What do history and archaeology have to say about Jesus death, burial, and resurrection? In this superb book, two of the world’s most celebrated writers on the historical Jesus share their greatest findings. Together, Craig A. Evans and N. T. Wright concisely and compellingly dubunk popular myths about the historical Jesus and convey the true, world-shattering significance of Jesus’ final days on earth.
Foundational: The four gospels come directly fromthe ancient church and are among the primary sourcesfor the church’s teachings.
Familiar: Since Christian worship services began, areading from the gospels has played a central role.
Studied: For over two hundred years scholars havechallenged and defended the central claims of thegospels: miracles, historical accuracy, the divinity ofJesus, and more.
But Forgotten: Still, leading Bible scholar N. T.Wright reveals shocking news: We have all forgottenwhat the four gospels are about.
“Despite centuries of intense and heavy industryexpended on the study of all sorts of features of thegospels,” Wright writes, “we have often managed tomiss the main thing that they, all four of them, aremost eager to tell us. What we need is not just a bitof fine-tuning, an adjustment here and there. We needa fundamental rethink about what the gospels aretrying to tell us.”
What Wright offers is an opportunity to confront thesepowerful texts afresh, as if we are encountering themfor the first time. How God Became King reveals thesurprising, unexpected, and shocking news of thegospels: this is the story of a new king, a new kind ofking, a king who has changed everything, and a kingwho invites us to be part of his new world.
In Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church, top-selling author and Anglican bishop, N.T. Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong. We do not “go to” heaven; we are resurrected and heaven comes down to earth–a difference that makes all of the difference to how we live on earth. Following N.T. Wright’s resonant exploration of a life of faith in Simply Christian, the award-winning author whom Newsweek calls “the world’s leading New Testament scholar” takes on one of life’s most controversial topics, a matter of life, death, spirituality, and survival for everyone living in the world today.

In the early twentieth century, the work of Albert Schweitzer brought historical Jesus research to a close. This was re-invigorated by Ernst Käsemann and the New Quest for the Historical Jesus. But that project reached its limitations as well. This research has been renewed in what has been called the “Third Quest.” In this volume, N. T. Wright, one of the most prominent voices in New Testament research today, concisely explores what he sees as the six major questions historical Jesus research must always address. How does Jesus fit into Judaism? What were Jesus’ aims? Why did Jesus die? How and why did the early church begin? Why are the Gospels what they are? How does the historical Jesus relate to our contemporary church and world? This book is an excerpt from N. T. Wright’s Jesus and the Victory of God (Fortress Press, 1996).
