Striking the Wright match

After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters
N. T. Wright
HarperOne, New York, 2010 307 pages

One of the most remarkable aspects of After You Believe is that it was written by a high-ranking official in the Church of England, who in no way makes those who don’t belong to his denomination feel excluded from his insights into what it means to be a Christian.

It’s also interesting that someone so English should have drawn his key illustration from an event so American as the crash-landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in New York, on January 15, 2009. The author, N. T. “Tom” Wright, details the exploits of Capt. Chesley Sullenberger and how they have come to be regarded by many people as a modern-day “miracle.”
