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).
