NT Wright is one of my favorite authors, and I absolutely loved this book. In fact, I took 35 pages of notes and highlights from the book! Wright's proposition is simple--the Bible has a tremendous amount to say about the character of Christ's followers, and the formation of character will not occur either through legalism (an emphasis on rules and laws) or antinomianism (a total disregard for rules and laws).

While this book is difficult at many points, I believe it is absolutely essential to understand how important the formation of character is and how to go about the formation of character (which Wright addresses in the final chapter).

I plan to re-read this book and will probably do so several times.
