Product Description Review “With this work N.T. Wright topples the simplistic personalized view of the cross and the bloodthirsty God that once wrecked my own faith. Instead we find the cross illuminated by a God that invites us to bring goodness into this world instead of trying to escape it.” (Mike McHargue author of Finding God in the Waves and host of The Liturgists Podcast and Ask Science Mike ) “The question ‘Why did Jesus have to die?’ has haunted the human race for two thousand years. Wright locates the crucifixion in the sweep of Israel’s story (and ours) with power depth and freshness of thought.” (John Ortberg is senior pastor of Menlo Church and author of All The Places To Go ) “Many have wondered where N.T. Wright stood in the atonement debate. He applies his story of Israel and the church to the cross setting it into a historical and narrative matrix that sheds light on the heart of the gospel that comes from the heart of God’s love.” (Scot McKnight author of The King Jesus Gospel ) “From the day Christ was crucified his followers have sought to understand the meaning of the cross. Wright has written one of the most important books on this subject ever written. Something deeper more revolutionary happened on the cross. This book will help you discover the meaning of the cross.” (Adam Hamilton author of Making Sense of the Bible ) “Relevant Recommends: Wright invites us to explore the crucifixion within the broader story of what God is doing in creation” (Relevant) “N. T. Wright’s The Challenge of Jesus revolutionized my theology. As I read The Day the Revolution Began I kept thinking that it will similarly revolutionize the understanding of a new generation of readers. It is lucid engaging thorough compelling and profoundly important.” (Brian D. McLaren author of We Make the Road By Walking ) “Wright delves into the Crucifixion and surprising himself he says finds it the mainspring of the faith and the church. Wright’s exegesis should inform and encourage everyone concerned with Christianity’s continuing vitality.” ( Booklist ) “In one of Wright’s most thoroughgoing nonacademic books he delves into the Crucifixion and surprising himself he says finds it the mainspring of the faith and the church. Jesus’ gruesome execution began the kingdom of God which believers realize by taking up the Cross and doing as Jesus did.” (Booklist (Starred Review)) “In his new book Wright explains that Jesus’ death does more than just get us into heaven.” (Christianity Today) From the Back Cover When Jesus of Nazareth died the horrible death of crucifixion at the hands of the Roman army nobody thought him a hero. His movement was over. Nothing had changed. This was the sort of thing that Rome did best. Caesar was on his throne. Death as usual had the last word. Except that in this case it didn’t. As Jesus’s followers looked back on that day they came up with the shocking scandalous nonsensical claim that his death had launched a revolution. That by 6:00 p.m. on that dark Friday the world was a different place. They believed that with this event the one true God had suddenly and dramatically put into operation his plan for the rescue of the world. They saw it as the day the revolution began.” Leading Bible scholar Anglican bishop and bestselling author N. T. Wright argues that the church has lost touch with the revolutionary nature of the cross. Most Christians have been taught a reduced message that the death of Jesus was all about “God saving me from my ‘sin’ so that I could ‘go to heaven.’” According to Wright this version misconstrues why Jesus had to die the nature of our sins and what our mission is in the world today. In his paradigm-shifting book Surprised by Hope Wright showed that the Bible’s message is not that heaven is where we go in the future; rather the Bible sees the primary movement as heaven coming down to earth redeeming the world beginning now. In this companion book Wright shows how Christianity’s central story tells how this revolution began on a Friday afternoon two thousand years ago and continues now through the church’s work today. Wright seeks to wake up the church to its own story to invite us to join in Jesus’s work of redeeming the world—to join his revolution. See all Product Description
