The Gospel means good news, but what makes it news? If the message has been around for 2,000 years, what could possibly be newsworthy about it? And what makes it good? Surely not the stories we hear of damnation, violence, and an angry God. Tom Wright believes many Christians have lost sight of what the ‘good news’ of the gospel really is. In Simply Good News, he shows how a first-century audience would have received the gospel message, what the ‘good news’ means for us today and how it can transform our lives.

Press Reviews

‘Tom Wright is, as always, brilliant at distilling immense scholarship into vivid, clear and accessible form.’

- Rowan Williams

N.T. Wright is the most prolific biblical scholar in a generation. Some say he is the most important apologist since C. S. Lewis.

- Christianity Today

Through his sermonic delivery, which is accessible, stimulating and relevant, Wright deconstructs the false barrier that has been erected between academic and practical theology. As a biblical scholar, he brings us into the world of second temple Judaism and helps us to set the Good News in its Hellenistic context. As a pastor, he gently guides us into prayer, through his meditation on the Lord’s Prayer in the final chapter, giving us lots of suggestions about how we can re-engage with the Gospel as news.
