In After You Believe, award-winning author and esteemed spiritual leader Bishop N.T. Wright (Simply Christian, Surprised by Hope) addresses the often neglected question of how Christians ought to live in the here and now. Newsweek calls Bishop Wright “the world’s leading New Testament scholar,” and After You Believe is essential reading for fans of C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, or anyone looking to understand more about Christianity and life’s real purpose today.
