Looking forward to NT Wright's "After you believe"

I am looking forward to reading and reviewing "After You Believe:  Why Christian Character Matters," by N.T. Wright


While I quibble at times with Bishop Wrights Ecclesial-Political statements, I generally find his writing and scholarship compelling and persuasive, and I'm looking forward to reading his new book.  Here is a bit about it...more later...




After You Believe

Why Christian Character Matters




"In After You Believe, award-winning author and esteemed spiritual leader Bishop N.T. Wright (Simply Christian, Surprised by Hope) addresses the often neglected question of how Christians ought to live in the here and now. Newsweek calls Bishop Wright “the world’s leading New Testament scholar,” and After You Believeis essential reading for fans of C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, or anyone looking to understand more about Christianity and life’s real purpose today."

“Bishop Wright, with his usual wisdom and erudition, shows how an account of the virtues is not only compatible but required by the New Testament understanding of what it means to be a Christian. This important book hopefully will be read by theologian and non-theologian alike.”
