The result is some genuine surprises all supported by in a deep biblical study and a wide appreciation of contemporary needs. In Surprised by Scripture, the Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity the University of St. Andrews gives his insightful and well informed view on subjects including womens ordination, science and religion, biblical ecology, the problem of evil and the resurrection of Jesus - and examines them all in the searching light of Scripture. This compact and readable book is intended for all levels of todays church from the pulpit to the pews. With his well known direct style combined with his compassionate and serious biblical interpretation, he puts forward new perspectives and dismantles dangerous old ones that have given rise to divisive and destructive misunderstandings within the Church. As with all his widely read and acclaimed writing, the widespread anticipation of this publication is a measure of Tom Wrights experience and the respect he has earned over many years in all strands of church tradition. Serious scholars, interested lay people, and even critics of the church will find something unexpected and enlightening in this book in which Tom Wright adheres to his own stated purpose: 'To allow the biblical writers to set the agenda rather than forcing on them a scheme of thought that does not do them justice.' Let the Bible speak for itself, and let Tom Wright help you to be genuinely and enduringly surprised by scripture.
