Practical Apologetic

Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense
by N. T. Wright
HarperSanFrancisco, 2006
(256 pages, $22.95, hardcover)

reviewed by Louis Markos

Just as C. S. Lewis began Mere Christianity by arguing that our intuitive sense of the moral law points toward a supernatural Director of that law, so N. T. Wright, Anglican bishop of Durham, begins Simply Christian by arguing that our inbred yearnings for justice, spirituality, relationship, and beauty point beyond our world to a Creator.
