"When today's leading New Testament theologian has something new to say about anything, readers pay attention."--Kimberly Mauck, The Christian Chronicle
"For those who are new to Wright, Simply Good News will offer a helpful introduction to and summary of . . . the work of an undoubtedly brilliant artist."--Christianity Today
"Simply Good News is a potent reminder that the gospel is an announcement of a past event, and this ensures the future and transforms the present. In a world of competing allegiances and rivals for cultural dominance, Wright steps in to say, 'Jesus is Lord.'"--Gospel Coalition
"Takes aim at pious church-going Christians who cling to a naive but persistent belief--that Jesus' teaching is all about getting your caboose into Heaven. . . . Wright is a giant among conservative Christian thinkers, often compared to C.S. Lewis in stature and influence."--The News & Observer
"Wright wipes off the dust of history and culture and finds that the good news of Jesus is more exciting, dynamic, and inspirational than what we have settled for. . . . Excellent scholarship expressed clearly and simply . . . a short gem."--Above the Haze
"Explains the nature of good news, the essence of what that good news is and is not, and what it means for the way we live now, think about God, and pray . . . readable and insightful, characterized by Wright's familiar mixture of rich scholarship, vivid illustration, and contemporary application."--Christianity Today
"Clarifies what exactly the good news is, and why such an undertaking even matters . . . well-articulated."--Seedbed
"Thoughtful and accessible, offering concrete Biblical wisdom as to how we can live as good news people."--Unfundamentalist Christians
"Wright's books have overpowered both Lewis and Stott because he has expanded those studies and set it all in a firmer historical orientation."--Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed
"Simply Good News sets out to reorient and refocus the Christian faith by examining its central tenet: the gospel... His exegesis of Jesus' words is thoughtful and accessible, offering concrete Biblical wisdom as to how we can live as good news people."--Patheos
"Wright's got another masterful book under his belt with Simply Good News."--Clarion Journal
Praise for N. T. Wright: "Tom Wright is, as always, brilliant at distilling immense scholarship into vivid, clear and accessible form."--Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
"Wright's direct style, reminiscent of C. S. Lewis' writings, invites readers in but allows for internal argument."--Booklist (starred review)
