How God Became King

The Forgotten Story of the Gospels

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Foundational: The four gospels come directly fromthe ancient church and are among the primary sourcesfor the church's teachings.

Familiar: Since Christian worship services began, areading from the gospels has played a central role.

Studied: For over two hundred years scholars havechallenged and defended the central claims of thegospels: miracles, historical accuracy, the divinity ofJesus, and more.

But Forgotten: Still, leading Bible scholar N. T.Wright reveals shocking news: We have all forgottenwhat the four gospels are about.

"Despite centuries of intense and heavy industryexpended on the study of all sorts of features of thegospels," Wright writes, "we have often managed tomiss the main thing that they, all four of them, aremost eager to tell us. What we need is not just a bitof fine-tuning, an adjustment here and there. We needa fundamental rethink about what the gospels aretrying to tell us."

What Wright offers is an opportunity to confront thesepowerful texts afresh, as if we are encountering themfor the first time. How God Became King reveals thesurprising, unexpected, and shocking news of thegospels: this is the story of a new king, a new kind ofking, a king who has changed everything, and a kingwho invites us to be part of his new world.

How God Became King

Thank you, you have given me a new way of understanding Jesus and His Kingdom here on earth.

An eye-opener!

This book really made me see that I have spent little time seeing Jesus as the reigning King. We hear songs like "The King is Coming" and think that his kingship is in the future when it is already established. I definitely see a neglect in my life of a study of the gospels and will task myself with reading them anew in their entirety. I highly recommend this book that makes you think!

How God Became King

Hard for me to follow, probably need to read again.
