With Easter fast approaching, we thought it was about time we had a fresh look at the central symbol of our faith, the cross. So we hit the road, along with musician David Benjamin Blower, and headed off to Tom Wright’s house in Scotland. We asked Tom how through the cross Jesus’s revolution began, and why after 2000 year does it often look like the revolution is struggling to transform the world.
I highly recommend Tom’s book The Day the Revolution Began. But seriously, there’s so many of his books that are must reads. If you want something at a more popular level, then I’d recommend his New Testament commentary series. It’s a very easy read, but packed full of characteristic insight and challenge.
