Publisher's Summary

In this thoughtful follow-up to Simply Christian, today’s leading Bible scholar, Anglican bishop, and acclaimed author uses the Gospel of John to reveal how Christianity presents a compelling and relevant explanation for our world. 

N. T. Wright argues that every world view must explain seven “signposts”, indicators inherent to humanity: justice, spirituality, relationships, beauty, freedom, truth, and power. If we do not live up to these ideals, our societies and individual lives become unbalanced, creating anger and frustration - negative emotions that divide us from ourselves and from God, he contends. 

Using the Gospel of John as his source, Wright shows how Christianity defines each signpost and illuminates why we so often see them as being "broken" and unattainable. Drawing on the wisdom of the Gospels, Wright explains why these signposts are fractured and damaged and how Christianity provides the vision, guidance, and hope for making them whole once again, ultimately healing ourselves and our world.

THE BEST PRESENTATION OF THE GOSPEL IN YEARS!!

Following hot on the heels of History & Eschatology this is a very necessary expression of the themes it concludes with. Covering 7 of the big issues not merely of our time, but of all time N T Wright allows us to glimpse wonder of life when the signposts are not broken- but also exhorts us to live well even in the presence of broken signposts. I heartily recommend this book, especially since with this one it is so accessible to a wide audience. A genuine blessing- already setting it up for a second hearing!
