The best book I have read during this series on "Five Minutes After" has been N. T. Wright's book "Surprised by Hope". I think that Wright is possibly going to be the most influential British Theologian of our generation. His scholarship is impeccable, his thinking is clear and he is thoroughly Biblical. This book is written on a popular level and I would commend it highly!
Listen to this quote from the jacket cover if you want to get provoked to read: "For years, Christians have been asking, "If you died tonight, do you know where you would go?" It turns out tha many believers have been giving the wrong answer. It is not heaven"
Yowza. Make you want to read? Wright will hook you into the deep hope we have in the resurrection, and demonstrate how our future is deeply intertwined with our lives today. It is a thoughtful book!
