I'm kinda like Oprah.

After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters
I'm starting a book club. Sorta. I will be reading After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters by NT Wright starting this week. Over the next eight weeks I will blog on Fridays about my thoughts as I read through the book. Feel free to join along if you would like.

I am a rather unapologetic disciple of Wright. I was drawn to this title because he will be unpacking Christian virtue/character as part of worship and mission. I've always struggled with being good (or moral) simply because the Bible tells me to. I was always the kid who wanted to know why I was expected to behave in a certain way. Once I knew why, I tended to be very compliant. If you'd like to spend the next few months thinking about why you should be good - or what even means to be good...then join me in this process. I'll discuss chapter one this coming Friday.
