Simply Christian is essential reading for anyone who wants to consider the real fundamentals of Christianity or is intrigued by its claims about the place of justice, beauty and love in our daily lives. Written in a lively and accessible style, though rooted in solid scholarship, this book describes the exciting relevance of the Bible and the Christian story for the contemporary world. 'I am very much impressed by the Bishop's book. He makes it absolutely fresh. He presents the case for Christianity as something new for the first time. It is enormously important especially in the UK where the Christian religion has virtually disappeared. It is absolutely wonderful, absolutely radical and very powerful' Professor Antony Flew, author of The Presumption of Atheism

From the Back Cover:

Why is justice fair? Why are so many people pursuing spirituality? Why do we crave relationship? And why is beauty so beautiful? N. T. Wright argues that each of these questions takes us into the mystery of who God is and what he wants from us. For two thousand years Christianity has claimed to answer these mysteries, and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still does today. Like C. S. Lewis did in his classic Mere Christianity, Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader is starting from ground zero with no predisposition to and perhaps even some negativity toward religion in general and Christianity in particular. His goal is to describe Christianity in as simple and accessible, yet hopefully attractive and exciting, a way as possible, both to say to outsides ˘You might want to look at this further,÷ and to say to insiders ˘You may not have quite understood this bit clearly yet.÷
