Simply Christian is the essential book for anyone looking for a clear, engaging introduction to the fundamentals of Christianity. In a lively, accessible style that always remained rooted in solid scholarship, Tom Wright presents a fresh, exciting case for the relevance of the Bible and the Christian story for the modern world.

Step by step, Simply Christian outlines what it means to live a Christian life and what believing in Christianity is all about. From the relationship between the Old and New Testaments, to what Christianity has to say about the place of justice, beauty and love in our daily lives, this is a rich expression of what lies at the core of Christian belief.

This is perfect reading for new Christians who are beginning to explore their faith and are seeking encouragement and reassurance that Jesus is worth following. It's also ideal for long-time Christians who are worried that their faith is stagnating or are questioning what they believe, who will have their doubts answered and their beliefs strengthened and renewed by Tom Wright's powerful, reasoned explanation of why Christianity makes sense.

Review quote

' ... an exceptional piece of Christian apologetics, and it is hard to think of a parallel since Lewis.' David Winter, Church Times 'I am very much impressed by the Bishop's book. He makes it absolutely fresh. He presents the case for Christianity as something new for the first time. It is enormously important especially in the UK where the Christian religion has virtually disappeared. It is absolutely wonderful, absolutely radical and very powerful.' Professor Antony Flew, author of The Presumption of Atheism
