Kingdom Come? The Gospels and Christian Hope


Christians often overlook the gospels and focus on “going to heaven’ instead of Jesus” insistence on God’s kingdom coming “on earth as in heaven”. Tom Wright offers a richer reading of the gospels, holding together the kingdom and the cross, and showing how both together overthrow evil and launch God’s new creation.

Tom Wright, until recently Bishop of Durham, is a research professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews and is a regular broadcaster on radio and television. He is the author of over 50 books, including the For Everyone guides to the New Testament and the recently-published How God Became King.
