God in Public
What has Christianity to do with power? Why must the church remind those in authority of their responsibilities? What can Christians do to act as the voice of the voiceless? How can speaking of God in public help to create new structures of international justice and peace?
These are the central questions running through Tom Wright's latest book in which he demonstrates the many ways in which faithful exegesis of Scripture can throw fresh light—God's light—on the great philosophical and ethical problems of our day.
"Tom Wright's message is authentic and urgent. Whether you come from a secular or believing background, God in Public has important things to say to you."
"God in Public is essential reading for those who want to navigate our changing landscape by drawing on, rather than ignoring, the map and compass that the Bible offers us."
"In God in Public Tom Wright draws on his years of experience as a member of the House of Lords and as one of our most exciting biblical scholars to produce a compelling book that speaks to everyone who wants to engage, biblically and intelligently, with some of the most pressing issues of our day."
