Description

In Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church, top-selling author and Anglican bishop, N.T. Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong. We do not “go to” heaven; we are resurrected and heaven comes down to earth--a difference that makes all of the difference to how we live on earth. Following N.T. Wright’s resonant exploration of a life of faith in Simply Christian, the award-winning author whom Newsweek calls “the world’s leading New Testament scholar” takes on one of life’s most controversial topics, a matter of life, death, spirituality, and survival for everyone living in the world today.

  • Well-Thought Book on Heaven

    By Jcrabb
    This book does a good job of providing a Biblical understanding of the life after death, especially for western readers who have lost perspective on some of these points. The best part of the book is the application of heaven theology to our current lives. It is the first time that I have read this particular take, but it is well thought out, encouraging, and challenging.
