New Testament scholar N.T. Wright reveals how we have been misreading the Gospels for centuries, powerfully restoring the lost central story of the Scripture: that the coronation of God through the acts of Jesus was the climax of human history. Wright fills the gaps that centuries of misdirection have opened up in our collective spiritual story, tracing a narrative from Eden, to Jesus, to today. Wright's powerful re-reading of the Gospels helps us re-align the focus of our spiritual beliefs, which have for too long been focused on the afterlife. Instead, the forgotten story of the Gospels reveals why we should understand that our real charge is to sustain and cooperating with God's kingdom here and now. Echoing the triumphs of Simply Christian and The Meaning of Jesus, Wright's How God Became King is required reading for any Christian searching to understand their mission in the world today.

Reviews

"Wright has never been more eloquent and persuasive than in this book that... caps a long, productive theological career."--Booklist (starred review) "Scholarly, accessible, insightful and challenging . . . an excellent and provocative book."--Christianity Magazine "The prolific Christian apologist N.T. Wright... now devotes an entire volume, 'How God Became King' to this trendy subject. Wright's insistence that Christianity has got it all wrong seems to mark a turning point for the serious rethinking of heaven."--The Washington Post "Wright is a scholar who writes as if the material he engages actually matters for the church and the world it lives in... and has again done the church a great favor in presenting the gospel story as the story of God and his kingdom on earth."--Englewood Review of Books Wright has never been more eloquent and persuasive than in this book that caps a long, productive theological career. --Booklist (starred review)" Scholarly, accessible, insightful and challenging . . . an excellent and provocative book. --Christianity Magazine" The prolific Christian apologist N.T.

Wright s insistence that Christianity has got it all wrong seems to mark a turning point for the serious rethinking of heaven. --The Washington Post" We often read the beginning and the end of the Gospels without the large middle where the message of the kingdom rings loud and clear. I recommend to everyone who wants to understand the Gospels message in a way that will not only inform the intellect but also transform life. --Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College" Tom Wright continues to urge and prod and propose how the church can regain a kingdom footing and end its empire heritage. And, he shows us how we can reshape both what we think about Jesus and how we follow him in our world. --Scot McKnight, Karl A.
