Summary
Put Jesus, the risen Jesus, in the middle of your life, your thinking, your living, your work, your pains, your griefs, your anxieties, your hopes, and your fears - put this Jesus in the middle, and work them all around him. Learn to worship him; learn to love him; and learn to live with a new life in his new world' So ends this exhilarating sequence of meditations on the biblical Jesus, and what it means to follow him today. In Part One, 'Looking to Jesus' NT Wright outlines the essential message of six major New Testament books, looking in particular at their portrayal of Jesus - 'the pioneer and perfecter of our faith'- and what he accomplished in his sacrificial death. In Part Two, 'A Living Sacrifice' he takes six key New Testament themes - resurrection, re-birth, temptation, hell, heaven, and new life - and explores their significance for the lives of present-day disciples.
