Wright challenges the notion that the primary purpose for Jesus s crucifixion was atonement. Instead, Wright invites us to explore the crucifixion within the broader story of what God is doing in creation --Relevant" Relevant Recommends: Wright invites us to explore the crucifixion within the broader story of what God is doing in creation --Relevant" In one of Wright s most thoroughgoing nonacademic books, he delves into the Crucifixion and, surprising himself, he says, finds it the mainspring of the faith and the church. Jesus gruesome execution began the kingdom of God, which believers realize by taking up the Cross and doing as Jesus did. --Booklist (Starred Review)" In his new book, Wright explains that Jesus death does more than just get us into heaven. --Christianity Today" Offers a comprehensive interpretation of Jesus s sacrifice and its significance for the Christian Faith --Publishers Weekly" "A thought-provoking book...both simple and world-shaking. Highly recommended."--Library Journal (Starred Review) "Wonderfully rich and provocative . . . this book could be entitled Your Cross Is Too Small. Our individualistic views of the atonement and, for that matter, the gospel, don't begin to do justice to the full implications of the New Testament understanding of the implications of Jesus's death and resurrection."--The Covenant Companion "A thought-provoking book...highly recommended for all libraries and will appeal to general readers interested in current theological thought."--Library Journal (Starred Review) "Offers a comprehensive interpretation of Jesus's sacrifice and its significance for the Christian Faith"--Publishers Weekly "Wright's bracing and thought-provoking exegesis should inform and encourage everyone concerned with Christianity's continuing vitality."--Booklist (Starred Review) "In his new book, Wright explains that Jesus' death does more than just get us into heaven."--Christianity Today "N. T. Wright's The Challenge of Jesus revolutionized my theology. As I read The Day the Revolution Began, I kept thinking that it will similarly revolutionize the understanding of a new generation of readers. It is lucid, engaging, thorough, compelling, and profoundly important."--Brian D. McLaren, author of We Make the Road By Walking "Relevant Recommends: Wright invites us to explore the crucifixion within the broader story of what God is doing in creation"--Relevant "From the day Christ was crucified his followers have sought to understand the meaning of the cross. Wright has written one of the most important books on this subject ever written. Something deeper, more revolutionary, happened on the cross. This book will help you discover the meaning of the cross."--Adam Hamilton, author of Making Sense of the Bible "Wright's unwavering faith in the resurrection is quite evident as he defends the Easter narratives on historical and theological grounds."--America Magazine "His conclusions are both simple and world-shaking."--Library Journal "Many have wondered where N.T. Wright stood in the atonement debate. He applies his story of Israel and the church to the cross, setting it into a historical and narrative matrix that sheds light on the heart of the gospel that comes from the heart of God's love."--Scot McKnight, author of The King Jesus Gospel "The question 'Why did Jesus have to die?' has haunted the human race for two thousand years. Wright locates the crucifixion in the sweep of Israel's story (and ours) with power, depth, and freshness of thought."--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church and author of All The Places To Go "With this work, N.T. Wright topples the simplistic, personalized view of the cross and the bloodthirsty God that once wrecked my own faith. Instead, we find the cross illuminated by a God that invites us to bring goodness into this world instead of trying to escape it."--Mike McHargue, author of Finding God in the Waves and host of The Liturgists Podcast and Ask Science Mike Praise for Surprised by Hope "This book is N.T. Wright at his finest."--Rob Bell "Wright delves into the Crucifixion and, surprising himself, he says, finds it the mainspring of the faith and the church. Wright's exegesis should inform and encourage everyone concerned with Christianity's continuing vitality."--Booklist "N. T. Wright's The Challenge of Jesus revolutionized my theology.
