really liked it
Read in July, 2012

I was nervous about this read. I am not one to get excited about apologetics, and this has been lauded as this generations "Mere Christianity" of which I am not a fan. But I was pleasantly surprised. Rather than offering justification or argument for the rational acceptability of Christianity, Wright more offers an explanation of what Christians believe and why. Less of a "here is why everyone should accept x" and more of "Christians believe x, this is the internal reasoning of it." A very good book for seekers and believers alike. It was very refreshing to read a simple reminder of the core of what I believe. I will say that there was very little discussion of the Trinity. It seemed incidental to Wright's presentation. However, being a biblical scholar by profession, it is understandable, perhaps, that Trinity takes a back seat to the more biblically explicit doctrines. I look forward to reading more of his popular works.
