How God Became King PB


    Foundational: the four gospels come directly from the ancient church and are among the primary sources for the church's teachings. Familiar: since Christian worship services began, a reading from the gospels has played a central role. Studied: for over two hundred years scholars have challenged and defended the central claims of the gospels: miracles, historical accuracy, the divinity ofJesus, and more. But Forgotten: leading Bible scholar N. T.Wright reveals shocking news, that we have all forgotten what the four gospels are about. "Despite centuries of intense and heavy industry expended on the study of all sorts of features of the gospels," Wright writes, "we have often managed to miss the main thing that they, all four of them, are most eager to tell us. What we need is not just a bit of fine-tuning, an adjustment here and there. We need a fundamental rethink about what the gospels are trying to tell us." What Wright offers is an opportunity to confront these powerful texts afresh, as if we are encountering them for the first time. How God Became King reveals the surprising, unexpected, and shocking news of the gospels: this is the story of a new king, a new kind of king, a king who has changed everything, and a king who invites us to be part of his new world.
