Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book is N.T. Wright at his finest.” — Rob Bell, author of Velvet Elvis

His conclusions are both simple and world-shaking — Library Journal

This book will be widely read because it stirs together Scripture, tradition, art and world affairs with pleasing metaphors and public courage. — The Dallas Morning News

“Wright’s unwavering faith in the resurrection is quite evident as he defends the Easter narratives on historical and theological grounds.” — America Magazine

“N.T. Wright can write. . . when it comes to questions of Christ’s resurrection and what that means, no one is more persuasive. Wright’s new book, Surprised by Hope, builds on C.S. Lewis’ succinct defense of the faith and takes it to a new level.” — World Magazine

“In calling Christians to an epistemology of love and a re-emphasis of the Easter season, Wright knocked it out of the park.” — Beliefnet (A "Top Religious Book of the Year")

A crystal-clear, powerful course-correction for all of us--Christian or otherwise. If you want to know what Easter is about, get yourself a copy of Surprised by Hope and hunker down for the read of a lifetime....literally. — Phyllis Tickle, Beliefnet.com
