Yesterday (Dec. 1) was the birthday of theologian N.T. Wright.
To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to his most significant books.
David Fitch recently remarked:
Every once in a while I meet a pastor who’s never read a single page of NT Wright. Look on my face? Stunned. Incredulous. How’d this happen?

This list is for the pastors that Fitch mentions, and for anyone else who hasn’t read N.T. Wright, or who wants to read more of Wright’s work…
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
Surprised By Hope may likely be Wright’s book that is most transformative book for the life and thought of local churches. Wright locates our hope not solely in a distant hereafter, but in the life of the church as Christ’s body in the here and now.
