Publisher's Summary

Why do we expect justice? Why do we crave spirituality? Why are we attracted to beauty? Why are relationships often so painful? And how will the world be made right? These are not simply perennial questions all generations must struggle with, but, according to N. T. Wright, are the very echoes of a voice we dimly perceive but deeply long to hear. In fact, these questions take us to the heart of who God is and what He wants from us.

For 2,000 years, Christianity has claimed to solve these mysteries, and this renowned biblical scholar and Anglican bishop shows that it still can today. Not since C. S. Lewis' classic summary of the faith, Mere Christianity, has such a wise and thorough scholar taken the time to explain to anyone who wants to know what Christianity really is and how it is practiced. Wright makes the case for Christian faith from the ground up, assuming that the reader has no knowledge of (and perhaps even some aversion to) religion in general and Christianity in particular.

Simply Christian walks the listener through the Christian faith step by step and question by question. With simple yet exciting and accessible prose, Wright challenges skeptics by offering explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled dilemmas, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith. For anyone who wants to travel beyond the controversies that can obscure what the Christian faith really stands for, this simple book is the perfect vehicle for that journey.

    "Excellent"

    Tom Wright is always a pleasure to read - well thought-out and based on knowledge of both the Bible and contemporary society. I don't always agree with him but he never offers an ill-considered opinion. By the way, because Wright is a conservative English bishop, I think he would be amused to be called an America-hating liberal!

    "A Revelation"

    The best book covering the entirety of Christianity that I have ever experienced. I have been a believer for 30 years, yet learned incredible amounts from Simply Christian. This is a great book for the new Christian, the seeker, the curious, or the seasoned believer.

    "Excellent book"

    Ignore people that try to paint N.T. Wright as liberal. He is not and this book is the farthest thing from liberal. Simply Christian is a sort of Mere Christianity for our day. Because Wright is Anglican there is a slight bent toward a sacramental way of living and this comes out in his discussion of baptism, the Eucharist and what happens in Christian worship. Being Episcopalian myself, I found this refreshing. The narrator is excellent and I've recommended this book to many.

    "An Amazing Book"

    I have read this book and wanted to be able to listen to it. It is a joy to listen to NT Wright's thoughts on Christianity. Wright brings great Biblical knowledge. Simply Christian is this generation's Mere Christianity.

    Dreamer and Weaver of Dreams - which means I like some fiction especially if it fits my world view: there is evil in the world and good must ALWAYS overcome it.

    "Stunning"

    I don't agree with every single word but... wow this is a masterwork and should be in every person's library. Not because of anything except that it states very clearly what ii is to be Christian without rancor or unevenness. Simple direct and thorough.

    "Phenomenal presentation of the Christian life"

    Dr. Wright presents here a grand high level look at the ingredients necessary going a fruitful Christian life. Wright first flys over the territory with an occasional five into the depths of the meatier aspects. He does an admirable job of defining and then expanding on the key issues one must wrestle with to be a Christian.
