    Inhaltsangabe

    In this groundbreaking book - available in audio for the first time - renowned Bible scholar, Anglican bishop, and best-selling author N. T. Wright argues that Christians have not distorted the Bible's message about heaven and what happens after we die.

    For years, Christians have been asking, "If you died tonight, do you know where you would go?" It turns out that many believers have been giving the wrong answer. It is not heaven.

    Wright outlines the present confusion about a Christian's future hope and shows how it is deeply intertwined with how we live today. Wright asserts that Christianity's most distinctive idea is bodily resurrection, and provides a magisterial defense for a literal resurrection of Jesus. Wright then explores our expectation of "new heavens and a new earth", revealing what happens to the dead until then and what will happen with the "second coming" of Jesus. For many, including many Christians, it will come as a great surprise to learn that heaven comes to earth instead of us going to heaven.

    Wright convincingly argues that what we believe about life after death directly affects what we believe about life before death. For if God intends to renew the whole creation - and if this has already begun in Jesus's resurrection - the church cannot stop at "saving souls" but must anticipate the eventual renewal by working for God's kingdom in the wider world, bringing healing and hope in the present life.

    Perceiving the Bible as a whole

    Bringing old and New Testaments together - pointing out the bigger picture. The world and humanity under "construction" to become a new creation; not abolished as a "failed experiment".

    Eine total neue, ungewöhnliche und befreiende Sicht

    Das Buch Surprised by Hope sollte jeder hören, der nicht ( mehr) glauben kann, dass die Bibel eine gute Nachricht für die Menschen ist. Der Autor legt seine Gedanken gut verständlich und sehr gut begründet dar. Der englische Leser liest sehr gut geschlafen ne deutlich, mit angenehmer Stimme.
