Reviews

"In his latest book, After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters, Wright challenges the church--and broader society in general--to return to virtue and the development of character."--Sojourners
"After You Believe by N. T. Wright offers yet another clarion call for believers and their communities to see that their actions in everyday life are evidence of the faith within."--Spirituality and Practice
"Often we get stuck between two extremes: an antinomian ('against law') spontaneity, and a rule-focused legalism. Instead, argues Wright... we need to develop virtuous character. ...Just about everything in After You Believe [is] a fresh way of exploring many familiar truths."--Christianity Today
"Making disciples is about the long-term development of Christian character. There is no quick fix discipleship. It is the development of Christlike behavior as second nature. This book spells out the New Testament basis and its application to Western culture."--Christianity Magazine
"As in all Wright books... you need to build your virtue muscle, sit down, exercise your free will and make a decision to read the whole thing... twice."--Worship Leader Magazine
"Those who tend toward legalistic views will find little comfort. It is a book worth considering."--Renewed in Spirit
"One of the world's best published Scripture scholars and an Anglican bishop, N. T. Wright's latest book blends biblical competence and pastoral experience. This is a book for a general audience with evangelical leanings about how a Christian goes about developing virtue, character or habits of thinking, feeling and acting."--America--The National Catholic Weekly
"One reason so many people read Tom Wright today is because he can write prose that is flat-out captivating. . . . Vintage Wright."--Christianity Today.com
"A follow-up to Wright's Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope, this solid volume will appeal to Christians who appreciate biblical interpretation that hews to tradition but incorporates an emphasis on contemporary social justice as an element of Christian virtue."--Publishers Weekly
"Bishop Wright, with his usual wisdom and erudition, shows how an account of the virtues is not only compatible but required by the New Testament understanding of what it means to be a Christian. This important book hopefully will be read by theologian and non-theologian alike."--Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School
"For those who feel the church has lost its way, Wright offers a roadmap to help guide its followers home."--U.S. Catholic
"[N.T. Wright is a] master at straight-forward, street-level writing about what makes our religious lives truly matter in the world. ...Wright's...powerful new book... is a clarion call to mature Christians to take seriously some of Jesus' messages we've long ignored."--Read the Spirit
"An excellent book . . . Wright's fine theological reflections here shed much light."--Englewood Review of Books
"Beautifully written, rich with insights and lined with thought-provoking material .. . . Sometimes compared to a modern-day C.S. Lewis, N. T. Wright is an author not to be missed.... Highly recommended."--Faithful Reader
"[A] very rich book.... Readers of After You Believe will admire Wright's close reading of Scripture, his clear prose, and his evident love for his Christian faith."--Commonweal
"A book that carefully examines Christian character, Christian virtues and the Christian life . . . needs serious attention."--The Louisville Courier-Journal
"In his new book, Wright, ...one of the most prolific and influential theologians of the 20th Century, ...posits that the development of virtue -- by the church and in broader society -- could help lead the Western world out of the sea of despondency in which it currently finds itself languishing."--Religion News Service
