New book: Christians at the Cross

Christians at the Cross: Finding Hope in the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus, a new title by N. T. Wright, to be published January 7, 2008.

To order from, click on the title above or click here.

The above book appears to have the same content as the UK release on the right, The Cross and the Colliery. Here is a description of the content. "Based on sermons originally delivered by Bishop Tom Wright during Easter 2007, this is a book for Lent that uses the story of a coal-mining town in northern England as a modern parable for loss and rebirth. The background history of the town - the closure of its mine, the subsequent strike and then the regeneration of the area - is given in the introduction, allowing readers to fully appreciate the context of the book, and make the most of its study questions."

Do you know if this is the same book released in the UK titled "The Cross and the Colliery"? (
This looks like it will be a great read. I ordered the UK softcover edition of Surprised by Hope which was released December 21. I am currently enjoying Romans for Everyone and Simply Christian. I look forward to reading the sequel.

It looks like the two books are the same, just under different titles. The page length is the same, but the ISBN is different, probably since it is under a different title.
