The Last Word: Beyond the Bible Wars to a New Understanding of the Authority of Scripture

by N.T. Wright

As usual, Wright makes good sense, with admonitions for both conservative and liberal Christians. Because of its brevity and wide-ranging scope, it's suitable to get Bible-study groups thinking, while admittedly leaving those who want more meat... wanting more meat. For that, Wright suggests several of his own books and a good short list of other resources.
