One of the world's premier Bible teachers, N. T. Wright, reminds us that what matters is not so much our faith itself as Who our faith is in. Faith, says Wright, is like a window. The point is not for part of the wall to be made of glass. A window is there because we want to see through it-and let light into the room! Faith allows us to see our situation and our own weakness in light of God, who is powerful, holy and loving. Wright considers how dependence, humility and mystery all have a role to play. God beckons us to lean on him as we seek to be constructive citizens of the world, to speak truth in love without hypocrisy and to risk submitting to one another in love. Life is not without its messiness and difficulties, when hard times come and the unexpected knocks us down. In the second edition of this must-read book for every Christian, Wright opens to us what faith means in times of trial and even in the face of death. Through it all he reminds 'us, it is not great faith we need: it is faith in a great God. Book jacket.
