Award-winning author and premier theologian N. T. Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong—a difference that makes all the difference to the lives we live here on Earth. Following his resonant exploration of a life of faith in Simply Christian, the award-winning author whom Newsweek calls “the world’s leading New Testament scholar” takes on one of life’s most controversial topics, a matter of life, death, spirituality, and survival for everyone living in the world today.
