God in Public: How the Bible Speaks Truth to Power - Then and Now [9780281074235]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A thoughtful and provocative book, in the vein of C. S. Lewis's classic The Weight of Glory Tom Wright was recently acclaimed by Newsweek as 'the world's leading New Testament scholar' For all who appreciated his Surprised by Scripture and would like to learn more about how biblical principles can help us to address pressing contemporary concerns. What has Christianity to do with power? Why must the church remind those in authority of their responsibilities? What can Christians do to act as the voice of the voiceless? How can speaking of God in public help to create new structures of international justice and peace? These are the central questions running through Tom Wright's latest book, in which he demonstrates the many ways in which faithful exegesis of scripture can throw fresh light - God's light - on the great philosophical and ethical problems of our day.


AUTHOR: Tom Wright is Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of over seventy books, including the For Everyone guides to the New Testament and the bestselling Simply Christian, Surprised by Hope, Simply Jesus, How God Became King, Creation, Power and Truth, Finding God in the Psalms, The Meal Jesus Gave Us, Surprised by Scripture and Simply Good News (all published by SPCK).
