We continue to add new books to the Media Center as they become available and are ready for checking out. Our newest title is SIMPLY JESUS. Bible scholar, Anglican bishop, and bestselling author N. T. Wright summarizes a lifetime of study of Jesus and the New Testament in order to present for a general audience who Jesus was and is. In Simply Jesus, we are invited to hear the story of the carpenter’s son from Nazareth as if we were hearing it for the first time. The Jesus we might discover if we really looked,” explains Wright,”is larger, more disturbing, more urgent than we had ever imagined. We have successfully managed to hide behind other questions and to avoid the huge, world shaking challenge of Jesus’s central claim and achievement. It is we, the churches who have reduced the Kingdom of God to private piety; the victory of the cross for the conscience. Piety, conscience, and ultimate happiness are important, but not nearly as important as Jesus himself.” As the church faces the many challenges of the 21st century, Wright has presented a vision of Jesus that more than meets them.
