From the Back Cover
Gain an exciting new vision for your life on earth in light of your future in heaven.Wonderful as is the promise of heaven, a glorious hereafter is just part of what salvation is about. What about today? Jesus called his followers the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Your life here and now is of tremendous consequence, and what you believe about the future has a direct impact on how you live in the present.In six transforming, faith-inspiring sessions, premier biblical scholar N. T. Wright opens your eyes to the amazing full scope of what God's Word has to say about the world to come and the world that is. Filled with discussion questions, thoughts for reflection, and ideas for personal application, this study guide will help you get the most out of each session as you explore such questions as? What is heaven really like?? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get there?? What hope does the gospel hold for this present life?? In what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us?Surprised by Hope will give you a clearer vision both of the future and of God's kingdom at hand today.1. Hope2. Resurrection3. Heaven4. Second Coming5. Salvation6. ChurchDesigned for use with the Surprised by Hope DVD.

I wasn't glad to find out that it follows along with a dvd that amazon doesn't sell with the purchase, but it does explain why it is so cheap. There's an ISBN on the back of the book for the cd but I don't understand if that can actually be of any help with the cd.
N.T. Wright is an excellent scholar though so I don't entirely mind having anythin of his work in my possesion, i bought the participants guide because i saw it was $10 online and got excited about it's cheapt price without realizing it was'nt the entire book as well.
But ah well ...
