N. T. Wright, the former Bishop of Durham for the Church of England, is a devoted pastor, a renowned biblical scholar, and a prolific author. I recently finished reading his 2008 book “Surprised By Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church”. I have read several of N. T. Wright’s books and watched several of his video clips over the past few years. They have been a great blessing to me and this book  is no exception.

In “Surprised By Hope” N. T. Wright offers a perspective on the Bible and the resurrection that has tremendous implications for the work of the church. I recommend it highly, and you can order it here (as an Amazon.com Associate Life Church receives a portion of the purchase price):

Bishop Wright has also recorded a set of 6 videos that deal with the book’s subject matter. I encourage you to check them out:
