In the tradition of his award-winning Surprised by Hope, Bishop N.T. Wright once again topples the accepted wisdom about what we think the Bible teaches. In Here and Now, he takes on the neglected question of How shall we live? Wright argues that people are so preoccupied about who gets into heaven that they forget not only that much of the New Testament is about the here and now, but also that even the passages about heaven are there to help us know how we act 'here and now.' Once again Wright takes the reader on a thrilling and eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promises radically to alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives.

From the Back Cover:

From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries—what is our purpose? As Christians, what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral? It's easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now.

Wright dispels the common misconception that Christian living is nothing more than a checklist of dos and don'ts. Nor is it a prescription to "follow your heart" wherever it may lead. Instead, After You Believe reveals the Bible's call for a revolution—a transformation of character that takes us beyond our earthly pursuit of money, sex, and power into a virtuous state of living that allows us to reflect God and live more worshipful, fulfilling lives.

We are all spiritual seekers, intuitively knowing there is more to life than we suspect. This is a book for anyone who is hoping there is something more while we're here on Earth. There is. We are being called to join the revolution, and Wright insightfully encourages readers to find new purpose and clarity by taking us on an eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promise to radically alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives.
