In The Day the Revolution Began Tom Wright invites you to consider the full meaning of the event at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus’ crucifixion. As he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope, Wright once again challenges commonly held beliefs, this time arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in reshaping our understanding of the Cross. With his characteristic rigour and incisiveness, he goes back to the New Testament to show that Jesus’ death not only releases us from the guilt and power of sin, but is nothing less than the beginning of a world-wide revolution that continues to this day – a revolution that creates and energizes a movement responsible for restoring and reconciling the whole of God’s creation. The Day the Revolution Began will take you to a new level in your appreciation of the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice: opening up its powerful and amazing implications, inspiring you with a renewed sense of purpose and hope, and reminding you of the crucial role you can play in the world-transforming movement that Jesus started.

The death of Jesus is the foundation of our faith, but what do we mean when we confess that Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture? N.T. Wright's book The Day the Revolution Began offers compelling answers to that question. His book is nothing less than a game changer. Just as Wright's book Surprised By Hope changed our view of the end, so this book is changing our view of the cross. This reader's guide offers a clear summary of Wright's interpretation of the cross in the context of both history and the big story told by the Bible. Using this reader's guide prayerfully will open up vistas of the love of God as you see the revolutionary cross with new eyes. Such a renewed vision will stir your thinking, prompt new conversations about the cross, cause your love for Christ to grow, and equip the Church to carry forth her gospel-shaped mission. What people are saying about N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross: In this reader's guide Derek Vreeland leads us through one of Wright's most important works. Providing the necessary background, locating the central themes, and giving the theological history, he unfolds Wright's majestic treatment of the cross of Christ in a way readers can follow quickly. In so doing, this careful student of N.T. Wright has made it possible for the rest of us students to dive more deeply into what God has accomplished in Christ's death on a cross. I highly recommend N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross. -DAVID FITCH, B.R. Lindner Chair of Evangelical Theology, Northern Seminary, author of Faithful Presence Like a skilled explorer and careful guide, Derek Vreeland once again helps people climb Mount N.T. Wright. Within the pages of N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross, Derek helps us see that the cross is so much more than we realize at first glance. This reader's guide is a great treasure chest that will bring to light the unsearchable riches of Christ. -DERWIN GRAY, Lead Pastor, Transformation Church, author of The High Definition Leader Derek Vreeland is among the most attentive readers of N.T. Wright that I know. More importantly, he stands at the intersection of academic theology and pastoral ministry. To be conversant in the language of the academy and the vernacular of the pew is a skill that is critically important if the work of theology is going to feed the flock of Jesus. With N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross, Derek Vreeland has made important developments in atonement theology accessible to the lay reader. As such, it is a timely and most welcome book! -BRIAN ZAHND, Lead Pastor, Word of Life Church, author of Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God There are few theologians who are able to set crucial Christian doctrines within the grand sweep of the Bible's story like N.T. Wright. Yet it is easy to get lost or confused within a big and complex story. Even where there is a trail, it helps to have a guide. Derek Vreeland is the perfect guide into Wright's expansive work on the cross of Christ. A pastor and a scholar, Vreeland has not simply summarized Wright; he has translated him into our own context, making these vital truths come alive for us as pastors and as followers of Jesus the crucified and risen Lord. -GLENN PACKIAM, Associate Senior Pastor, New Life Church, author of Discover the Mystery of Faith Derek Vreeland brilliantly articulates and unpacks the theological genius of N.T. Wright. Vreeland offers a concise roadmap to The Day the Revolution Began in a way that is accessible for emerging theologians, pastors, and your everyday lay leader. -TARA BETH LEACH, Senior Pastor, PazNaz, author of Emboldened: A Vision for Empowering Women in Ministry

At four in the morning on April 19, 1975, a line of British soldiers stared across the village green of Lexington, Massachusetts, at a crowd of seventy-seven Amercican militiamen. A shot rang out, and the Redcoats replied with a devastating volley. But the day that started so well for the king's troops would end in catastrophe: seventy-three British soldiers dead, two hundred wounded, and the survivors chased back into Boston by the angry colonists. Drawing on diaries, letters, official documents, and memoirs, William H. Hallahan vividly captures the drama of those tense twenty-four hours and shows how they decided the fate of two nations.

The first book in Don Brown's Actual Times series brings the start of the American Revolution to life. A 26-year-old King George II found himself in financial turmoil after crushing the French, Austrians, and Spanish in battle. Luckily money was no object since he could easily get it back by raising taxes on his American colonies...but what King George didn't realize was the colonies were beginning to have a mind of their own and had started to set their sights on freedom. The cast of characters includes those we know--the famous silversmith, turned messenger, Paul Revere--and many we haven't heard of like "Flinty Whittemore," a 78-year-old who fought off the British with a musket, two pistols, a sword, was bayoneted 14 times and still lived another 18 years to brag about it. Detailed, yet accessible, Don Brown's award-winning nonfiction style brilliantly comes to life in Let It Begin Here, this fascinating account of the start of the Revolutionary War.

Luther's theology of the cross has impacted major theologians and centuries of theology, including the present, and yet it is weakened by its reactionary theological determinism, reductionism, and understandable failure to properly integrate fluid, melioristic, and pro-creation kingdom eschatology. N. T. Wright's revolutionary cross, articulated in The Day the Revolution Began: Reconsidering the Meaning of Jesus's Crucifixion, is a brilliant and clarion new creation eschatological call to action that suffers from a somewhat cryptic, imprecise, and unrefined eschatology. Heino O. Kadai has presented an authoritative and concise rendering of Luther's key insights. Rustin Brian has carefully assessed whether Luther's theology of the cross deserves blame for the Deus absconditus of modernity in his Barthian influenced Covering Up Luther. Robert Cady Saler has masterfully articulated a relevant and pastoral Theologia Crucis framed by Moltmann's Theology of Hope that is most applicable to the contemporary church and sociopolitical engagement. A Theology of Cross and Kingdom sympathetically and creatively critiques and synthesizes dominant themes in such classical and contemporary theologies of the cross within a unified cross and kingdom eschatology. Matthews deftly overcomes many of the less than helpful disjunctive approaches to the theology of the cross while proffering a way forward for this most influential and core theological treasure of the church.

‘Superbly written, utterly Bible based. . . Do not hesitate!’ Archbishop Justin Welby What are we supposed to think about the coronavirus crisis? Some people think they know: ‘This is a sign of the End,’ they say. ‘It’s all predicted in the book of Revelation.’ Others disagree but are equally clear: ‘This is a call to repent. God is judging the world and through this disease he’s telling us to change.’ Some join in the chorus of blame and condemnation: ‘It’s the fault of the Chinese, the government, the World Health Organization...' Tom Wright examines these reactions to the virus and finds them wanting. Instead, he invites you to consider a different way of seeing and responding – a way that draws on the teachings and examples of scripture, and above all on the way of living, thinking and praying revealed to us by Jesus.

Justice, Love, Spirituality, Beauty, Freedom, Truth and Power. These are ideals that we all strive for, yet so often we find ourselves falling short. Why is that? In this deeply insightful meditation, Tom Wright looks to the Gospel of John for answers. With his characteristic wisdom, he shows how John can help us to see not only why we strive for these ideals, or ‘signposts’, but also why we so often experience them as broken. He also shows how Christianity provides us with the vision and resources for engaging with the questions posed by each signpost, pointing to a clear and compelling explanation of the world, and of our role and responsibility within it.
