EBOOK Simply Good News


Dark Tapestry (Colin and Leora Mysteries) gI try not toive out a lot of 5 stars simply bc i don t think there are many books that deserve that i don t think there are many books that deserve that of ratingso when I do I honestly think it is an important and ood book To me Wright summarizes succinctly many themes and ideas found in several other of his works both popular and scholarly If one wants to understand Wright and where he comes from and where he is oingat least on a eneral levelOne MUST read this book This is one of Wright s popular level books Lite Wright But it packs a wallop Covering much the same round as Scot McKnight s King Jesus Gospel Wright pushes his readers to enlarge their picture of what the ood news really is He sets Jesus in the context of Israel s hope he sets the plan of salvation in the context of the renewal of all creation he roots heaven in the experience of resurrection and the way the kingdom breaks into the present he looks forward to Christ s return and the fullness of new creationWright is prolific and for someone so prolific it amazes me that his books are so consistently ood My favorite chapter is the final one where he looks at the Lord s prayer as a way of praying the ood news He brings us in the back door with the final line Don t bring us into trial but rescue us from evil Walking backwards through the prayer as most of us often prayer he talks about these as a prayer for help a prayer for forgiveness a prayer for bread a prayer for God s will and kingdom to come a prayer honoring and lorifying God a prayer to our host the Father As we learn to pray this forwards we embody and what it means to be the The GI Bride good news people This may possibly be my favourite book by NT Wright so far It is closest in my eyes to Surprised by Hope As in that book Wright is dealing with a topic that while basic to Christianity is often misinterpreted and misunderstood In this book while dealing with the Good News or Gospel Wright is excellent He ratherently points out the false ospels of the world as well as the incomplete ospels that can be embraced by well

MEANING CHRISTIANS MYSELF INCLUDED UNUSUAL FOR 
Christians myself included Unusual for this particular book was fairly easy to read so I can actually recommend it to a much wider audience than normal I had hoped that this would be a 5 star book but alas it was not Similar to Surprised by Hope Wright never seems to complete what he has started Thus he has helped with the intellectual articulation of what the Gospel really is he provides little or no help in how this Gospel can best be communicated in the world we live in Similarly while outlining where typical Christian views of the second coming are faulty he completely neglects any articulation of what the second coming actually stands for or any view of the end times On the other hand his final chapter on praying the Gospel was a wonderful end to the book and should be helpful to the spiritual rowth of any Christian who wants this Wright couches the ospel in the larger view of God s redemptive plan for salvation He argues that the Ratscalibur gospel is news about an event the resurrection and that it finds most significance in light of Israel s longing for a Messiah Very helpful to think of salvation in terms of God sreater story rather than just personal justification He does address personal response to the Gospel But Could Have but could have detailed in how someone is to respond If you ve never read anything by NT Wright this would be a The Million Dollar Goal (The Million Dollar Series, great place to start This is aospel book in the mold of What is the Gospel The King Jesus Gospel The World Tilting Gospel and others While I have some reservations about this book I do believe this is the best of the few that I ve read because Wright has some out of the ordinary kinds of things to say All the writers agree that the The Selected Poems gospel isood news but the uestion is what that meansWhere Gilbert confuses the A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing with the NFL's Most Ruthless Agent gospel with salvation as McKnight says it is a de storifiedospel Wright builds the story in ways that none of the others do But McKnight falls short in delivering a satisfactory storification of the My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA gospel Dan Phillips in The World Tilting Gospel provides the story but it doesn t real. The bishop Bible scholar modern heir to C S Lewis and revered author of Simply Christian and Simply Jesus offers a fresh look at the Gospel explaining why Jesus’ message is “good news” and why it is timely and transforming today than we knowThe Gospel meansood news But if the message has Simply Good NewsLleviate some of the worst evils and look after THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING AS WRIGHT SAYS THIS SIMPLY who are suffering As Wright says This simply the New Testament S Emphasis Instead Testament s emphasis Instead reminds us that The risen Jesus already claims all authority in heaven and on earth p 114Wright argues that we can and must learn from the early church that real and lasting change is costly the basic victory has been won on the cross p 117 As Jesus states of the church the The Book of Leviathan gates of hell shall not prevail against it Matt 1618 It is the church that is on the offense with hell on the defensive Wright understands this and wants to help the church rememberWright concludes with a chapter on the Lord s Prayer showing how following Jesus words help us properly orient ourselves to our world The prayer begins May your kingdom come may your will be done on earth as in heaven God is re making earth and he has told us to pray and labor for this now not just for a final victorious act at the end of historyIt is here at the end that Wright offers his final definition of theospelThe Nine Ghosts good news is that the living God is indeed establishing his kingdom on earth as in heaven through the finished work of Jesus and is inviting people of all sorts to share not only in the benefits of this kingdom but also in the work through which it will come to its ultimate completion p 164The result of this fullerospel vision will be God centered prayers for God s kingdom that replace our self centered prayers for help for rescue for forgiveness and for bread For our prayers will begin with God s kingdom and allowing God himself to reshape what that means p 161 45 This book should be reuired reading for Christians just not the only reuired reading There s so much in here poking holes through the dualistic cultural Christianity that I was raised in and providing a biblical and an the dualistic cultural Christianity that I was raised in and providing a biblical and an future I haven t read too many Wright books but from what I can tell he bangs on the same drum very often which is not a bad thing and this is the most simple explanation of why he does that God has begun the new creation in ChristThe reason I didn t Las Maravillosas Obras de Dios: Historias B�blicas Para La Familia give it 5 stars was because of the personal emphasis of repentance and faith He definitely says that s part of the story in the book but does not spend much time on it whatsoever The picture he paints is a reallyood one but I have several non Christians in my life that would not see it as شرح جامع مثنوى معنوى good news until they knew that their sins were forgiven and they det to enjoy it all It is not that I didn t like this book in many ways I really did But it is my second lay level book that I have read for NT Wright and I am just not appreciating the level of writing he does intended for mass audiences I would rather read his technical stuff I agreed with much of what he had to write in this book It took me etting through 80% of the book to realize that his ultimate thesis in the book is actually making a case for a version of postmillennialism Although he never actually uses this word but I am unsure if he doesn t because of the book s audience not being able to handle big theological words or because he doesn t uite subscribe himself to all the category might meanI did not care for the fact that the book was extremely light on Scripture and actual historical information again lay level book vs technical book and no footnotes or endnotes It is not so much that I disagreed with his premises but because he did not offer any real support for them they really were just assertionsAnyway agreed with much of the book Didn t care for the presentation Perspective changingI really liked Wright s emphasis on the lesser thought about lesser presented aspects of the Gospel Very enlightening read will check out some of the author s other books sometime This is an easy version of my favorite NT Wright ideas on what the kingdom is and what it means to follow Jesus and how that changes everything on earth I didn t need to read it since I ve read thicker versions of it before but a friend passed it on so I went through it and I can pass it on to others who don t want the scholarly or stiffly written versions. Good News he takes us back in time to reveal how the people of the first century the ospel’s original audience would have received Jesus’ message He offer a clear and thoughtful analysis of what the “good news” really is and applies it to our lives today revealing its power to transform. ,

Ly pack the punch that Wright offers Wright has a deeper richer biblical theological understanding of the Old Testament and the New Covenant fulfillment in Christ a deeper richer biblical theological understanding of the Old Testament and the New Covenant fulfillment in Christ is therefore able to take his readers deeper challenging us to think new thoughts and engaging his readers in ways Phillips simply cannot doWright begins with many of the same concerns that McKnight has with the way Christians have articulated the Riding Hard gospel Wright argues that In many churches theood news has subtly changed into Arabian Challenge good advice As Wright himself says there s nothing wrong withood advice But it isn t the same thing as news p 4 For Wright the ospel must be news Something had happened Something would happen And in between something powerful and mysterious was happening in the lives of all those who found themselves caught up in it If we want to recapture the dynamic of the original early Christian ospel we need to recapture this triple vision and to see in particular what this tells us about the meaning of the word God p 34Wright defines this Der Verlorene Koffer: A Graded Reader for Beginning Students good news Theood news is about the living God overcoming all the powers of the world to establish his rule of justice and peace on earth as in heaven Not in heaven later on And that victory is won not by superior power of the same kind but by a different sort of power altogether p43 Or simply The ILLERAMMA Kathalu good news is that the one true God has now taken charge of the world in and through Jesus and his death and resurrection p 56Now I expect that this is where Gilbert and others like himet hung up for this is simply not a sufficiently systematic presentation of the American Literature Student Text gospel which must say something about sin and the need for salvation from God s wrath against it Gilbert What is the Gospel p 17 But this is precisely where Gilbertoes awry confusing the Cheyenne: A Sweet Historical Romance gospel with soteriology But Wright is clear that theospel is much bigger than that including the restoration and transformation of all creation p 71 and is much bigger than that including the restoration and transformation of all creation p 71 and is like a coronation than a sacrifice p 72Wright is also clear that it does also include the soteriology including Jesus died for me it must include that but it is not only that Now to many this may seem to be nit picky or contentious but the rest of the book demonstrates that if we don t properly define the The Battle of Maldon and Other Old English Poems gospel the power of theospel is diminished This is where Gilbert s What is the Gospel falls flat His chapter The Power of the Gospel is seven pages long and has little to say beyond believe the ospel and speak the ospel Again the problem here is not what is said but rather what isn t said Gilbert s Black Wings of Cthulhu gospel isn t powerful enough for him to confidently say things like the living God is indeed establishing his kingdom on earth as in heaven through the finished work of Jesus and is inviting people of all sorts to share not only in the benefits of this kingdom but also in the work through which it will come to its ultimate completion Wright p 164 Wright has much to say of course Fortunately this is one of Wright s shorter books where his editors have an incentive to reduce rather than increase Wright s page count Wright riffs on the distinction between the final vision of the Christianospel as Girl on the Verge going to heaven when you die versus the rescue and renewal of the whole creation p 90 Again the truncated pietisticospel doesn t have such a holistic vision This answers the compelling human need for meaning in this life for vocation If God s kingdom has begun this ives new meaning to what we do on earth in the here and now It is at this point that Wright takes a chapter to expound upon the future He knows that if we do not properly understand what the Bible says about The Future That We Will future that we will live biblically in the present Chapter 6 Wrong Future Wrong Present is about understanding what so many believe to be predictions of final punishment in the New Testament instead a majority of the sayings do not mean what people have assumed they mean p 109Wright is opposing those in the church that shrug their shoulders and say there s nothign we can do to make the world a better place until Jesus returns That All we can do is Een around for 2000 years what makes it significant today What’s so “good” about stories involving damnation violence and a God who sacrifices his only sonNoted Bible scholar NT Wright shows us how Christians today have lost sight of what the “good news” of the ospel really is In Simply.
