' ... an exceptional piece of Christian apologetics, and it is hard to think of a parallel since Lewis.' David Winter, Church Times 'I am very much impressed by the Bishop's book. He makes it absolutely fresh. He presents the case for Christianity as something new for the first time. It is enormously important especially in the UK where the Christian religion has virtually disappeared. It is absolutely wonderful, absolutely radical and very powerful.' Professor Antony Flew, author of The Presumption of Atheism
From the Back Cover
Why do we expect justice? Why do we crave spirituality? Why are we attracted to beauty? Why are relationships often so painful? And how will the world be made right? These are not simply perennial questions all generations must struggle with, but, according to N. T. Wright, are the very echoes of a voice we dimly perceive but deeply long to hear. In fact, these questions take us to the heart of who God is and what He wants from us.
For two thousand years, Christianity has claimed to solve these mysteries, and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still can today. Not since C. S. Lewis's classic summary of the faith, Mere Christianity, has such a wise and thorough scholar taken the time to explain to anyone who wants to know what Christianity really is and how it is practiced. Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no knowledge of (and perhaps even some aversion to) religion in general and Christianity in particular.
Simply Christian walks the reader through the Christian faith step by step and question by question. With simple yet exciting and accessible prose, Wright challenges skeptics by offering explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled dilemmas, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith. For anyone who wants to travel beyond the controversies that can obscure what the Christian faith really stands for, this simple book is the perfect vehicle for that journey.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
