How God Became King: The Forgotten Stories of the Gospels by N. T. Wright

Over the years, N. T. Wright says he has become increasingly aware that the church has “forgotten what the four gospels are about.” As Christians have focused on Jesus’ birth, death, resurrection, and ascension, they have often failed to address what Wright sees as a central question: “Why did Jesus live? What, in other words, about the bit between the stable and the cross?” In this clearly articulated and theologically significant book, Wright spells out the implications for Christians’ lives that “the whole point of the gospels is to tell the story of how God became king, on earth as in heaven.” (HarperOne)
