    “Jesus - the Jesus we might discover if we really looked,” explains Wright, “is larger, more disturbing, more urgent than we had ever imagined. We have successfully managed to hide behind other questions and to avoid the huge, world-shaking challenge of Jesus’s central claim and achievement. It is we, the churches, who have been the real reductionists. We have reduced the kingdom of God to private piety; the victory of the cross to comfort for the conscience; Easter itself to a happy, escapist ending after a sad, dark tale. Piety, conscience, and ultimate happiness are important...."

    Terry says: "A must read for today's church"
    "Wonderful Overview!"

    Story
    What did you love best about Simply Jesus?

    I have read many of NT Wrights books but I think that this one is the best that I have ever read. It was easy to follow and helped me gain a good framework for understanding Jesus.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Simply Jesus?

    Learning about the other types of Messiah movements helped me understand Jesus' own moverment. I love it!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It deeply gratified me and made me think.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to long time Christians and to seekers alike.
