From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries--what is our purpose? As Christians, what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral? It's easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now. Wright dispels the common misconception that Christian living is nothing more than a checklist of dos and don'ts. Nor is it a prescription to "follow your heart" wherever it may lead. Instead, After You Believe reveals the Bible's call for a revolution--a transformation of character that takes us beyond our earthly pursuit of money, sex, and power into a virtuous state of living that allows us to reflect God and live more worshipful, fulfilling lives. We are all spiritual seekers, intuitively knowing there is more to life than we suspect. This is a book for anyone who is hoping there is something more while we're here on Earth. There is. We are being called to join the revolution, and Wright insightfully encourages readers to find new purpose and clarity by taking us on an eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promise to radically alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives.… (mere)

Excellent. One of the best books I have ever read, period. ( )

Highly recommended! I think this is one of NT Wright's more easily read books. I really liked how gave examples both secular and Christian of how virtue plays into the development of character. He really gets into the nuts and bolts of things. I also like the fact that he rooted his discussions in Scripture and Aristotle. In addition, he discusses briefly how his views relate to some other commonly held views. Towards the end he also mentions some examples such as Rowan Williams, St. Francis of Assisi, among others. It should be noted however that while this book does stand on its own, I would recommend that you also consider reading some of NT Wrights other works to see where is coming from. ( )

Good things happen when you mash different subjects together (just search for "mashup" on YouTube and you'll see what I mean). In Wright's latest book for the public audience, he's mashed up three topics:

1. New Testament ethics
2. Christian virtue
3. Non-Christian ethics

Here's the book in a nutshell: We are called to habitually practice the virtues of the Kingdom of God here in the present, so when difficult situations arise we will act according to our second nature (Christian habits) rather than our old nature. Wright develops this theme in quite a bit of detail.

My only criticism of the book is its length. While I love his 800 page works of theology, this could have been trimmed down for the popular audience.

Wright has an uncanny ability to pierce through the quagmire of mushy modern theology and deliver substance that will help the believer live life to the fullest. This is worthwhile reading for anyone who has ever wondered what to do after becoming a believer. ( )

I found this book both challenging and encouraging. It deals with developing character as Christians, explaining why this is important (living in anticipation of the people we will be), what the context for this character is (community is far more important than many may suppose), and what we should be doing practically (no short cuts, but constant practice).

Not everything in the book is new or revolutionary, but it should provide a framework and language for growing as a Christian, bearing spiritual fruit (Galations 5:22-23) and living in faith, hope and love (1 Corinthians 13:13).

Tom Wright continues his knack of identifying areas of practical Christian living where many people are confused by, or unaware of, what the Bible has to say. Every Christian should read it, and help their local church community to grow in character to be effective in living out the Kingdom where they are. ( )

As with most of Tom Wright's stuff this is well worth the read but despite being published under Wright's accessible "Tom" brand, rather than the more academic style of "NT", the book does get rather heavy and a bit bogged down in places. Readers who are looking for a punchy follow up to "Surprised by Hope" may be disappointed, as this lacks the "wow" factor that that book had. Persevere, though, as there is much here to think about and Wright's observation that mission and discipleship go hand in hand is spot on. This is Wright as theologian/philosopher rather than as Biblical scholar, and "Virtue Reborn" occupies an already crowded market sector. Writers such as Dallas Willard do a better job in this space, but Wright's solid Biblical footing lends a helpful perspective. One minor flaw is the occasional lack of at least a nod in the direction of the non-Anglican readership. ( )
