Summary
The renowned scholar, Anglican bishop, and bestselling author widely considered to be the heir to C.S. Lewis contemplates the central event at the heart of the Christian faith -- Jesus' crucifixion -- arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in transforming our understanding of its meaning. In The Day the Revolution Began, N.T. Wright once again challenges commonly held Christian beliefs as he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope. Demonstrating the rigorous intellect and breathtaking knowledge that have long defined his work, Wright argues that Jesus' death on the cross was not only to absolve us of our sins; it was actually the beginning of a revolution commissioning the Christian faithful to a new vocation -- a royal priesthood responsible for restoring and reconciling all of God's creation. Wright argues that Jesus' crucifixion must be understood within the much larger story of God's purposes to bring heaven and earth together. The Day the Revolution Began offers a grand picture of Jesus' sacrifice and its full significance for the Christian faith, inspiring believers with a renewed sense of mission, purpose, and hope, and reminding them of the crucial role the Christian faith must play in protecting and shaping the future of the world
Summary
Argues that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in reconsidering the meaning of Jesus's crucifixion and claims that his death on the cross was actually a calling for the faithful to restore and reconcile all of Gods creation
