Simply Good News: Why the Gospel is News and Why It Is Goodby N. T. Wright (230 Wri)
The Gospel means good news. What makes it significant today? The author, a Bible scholar, shows how Christians today have lost sight of what the good news of the gospel is by revealing how the gospel’s original audience would have received Jesus’ message. Wright applies the good news to our lives today with it power to transform us.
