Editorial Reviews

Review

“When today’s leading New Testament theologian has something new to say about anything, readers pay attention.” -- Kimberly Mauck, The Christian Chronicle

“Explains the nature of good news, the essence of what that good news is and is not, and what it means for the way we live now, think about God, and pray . . . readable and insightful, characterized by Wright’s familiar mixture of rich scholarship, vivid illustration, and contemporary application.” -- Christianity Today

“Wright’s books have overpowered both Lewis and Stott because he has expanded those studies and set it all in a firmer historical orientation.” -- Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed

“Wright wipes off the dust of history and culture and finds that the good news of Jesus is more exciting, dynamic, and inspirational than what we have settled for. . . . Excellent scholarship expressed clearly and simply . . . a short gem.” -- Above the Haze

“Wright’s got another masterful book under his belt with Simply Good News.” -- Clarion Journal

“Clarifies what exactly the good news is, and why such an undertaking even matters . . . well-articulated.” -- Seedbed

Simply Good News is a potent reminder that the gospel is an announcement of a past event, and this ensures the future and transforms the present. In a world of competing allegiances and rivals for cultural dominance, Wright steps in to say, ‘Jesus is Lord.’” -- Gospel Coalition

“Takes aim at pious church-going Christians who cling to a naive but persistent belief--that Jesus’ teaching is all about getting your caboose into Heaven. . . . Wright is a giant among conservative Christian thinkers, often compared to C.S. Lewis in stature and influence.” -- The News & Observer

Simply Good News sets out to reorient and refocus the Christian faith by examining its central tenet: the gospel… His exegesis of Jesus’ words is thoughtful and accessible, offering concrete Biblical wisdom as to how we can live as good news people.” -- Patheos

“Wright’s direct style, reminiscent of C. S. Lewis’ writings, invites readers in but allows for internal argument.” -- Booklist (starred review)

About the Author

N. T. Wright, one of the world’s leading Bible scholars, is the chair of New Testament and Early Christianity at the School of Divinity at the University of St. Andrews, an Anglican bishop, and bestselling author. Featured on ABC News, The Colbert Report, Dateline, and Fresh Air, Wright is the award-winning author of Simply Good News, Simply Jesus, Simply Christian, Surprised by Hope, How God Became King, Scripture and the Authority of God, Surprised by Scripture, and The Case for the Psalms, as well as the recent translation of the New Testament The Kingdom New Testament and the much heralded series Christian Origins and the Question of God.
