In Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church, top-selling author and Anglican bishop, N.T. Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong. We do not "go to" heaven; we are resurrected and heaven comes down to earth--a difference that makes all of the difference to how we live on earth. Following N.T. Wright's resonant exploration of a life of faith in Simply Christian, the award-winning author whom Newsweek calls "the world's leading New Testament scholar" takes on one of life's most controversial topics, a matter of life, death, spirituality, and survival for everyone living in the world today.

This is one of those books that continually makes you ruminate over each paragraph. I read it on a 3 hour plane ride and only completed 17 pages. You are constantly forced to reevaluate your time on this Earth and your part in bringing Christ's glory to it.

A very thorough run down of the resurection and what it means for belivers. As technical as a writer as Mr. Wright is, this was the best book I've read in a very long time. I bought it after my 4th time renewing it :)
