Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church. The award-winning author and premier New Testament scholar tackles the idea of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong and the difference it makes. For years Christians have been asking, "If you died tonight, do you know where you would go?" It turns out Christians have been giving the wrong answer. It is not heaven.
Gain an exciting new vision for your life on earth in light of your future in heaven. Wonderful as is the promise of heaven, a glorious hereafter is just part of what salvation is about. What about today? Our lives here and now are of tremendous consequence, and what we believe about the future has a direct impact on how we live in the present. In six transforming, faith-inspiring sessions, premier biblical scholar N. T. Wright reveals the amazing full scope of what God's Word has to say about the world to come and the world that is. What is heaven really like? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get there? What hope does the gospel hold for this present life, and in what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us? Ideal for Bible studies, Sunday school classes, and groups large or small, Surprised by Hope will give participants a clearer vision both of the future and of God's kingdom at hand today.
