Book Review: Simply Christian by N.T Wright

I reviewed Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense by N.T. Wright last year. This book wins the “To The Moon” Best Book Award for 2006!

A kindred spirit, November 10, 2006


This is the first book on Christian apologetics that I have read in a long time that feels like it is written by a true thinker and hasn’t made me feel slightly nauseated. At first I thought he was going over the same ground as C.S. Lewis does in the book “Mere Christianity”, since it starts the same way about how humans have an in-built longing for justice and beauty (and where did that come from??) – but he moves on from there to Jesus himself and the kingdom that Jesus kept on talking about … I strongly recommend this book for any thinking person who is thinking about God.
After finishing this book – I would recommend rereading the book of Matthew – maybe with William Barclay’s easy to read commentary, which also sends shivers down the spine in its insights into Jesus.
