Many Christians believe our future in heaven is all that really matters. But that's not what the Bible teaches. In this six-session small group Bible study (guide sold separately), premier Bible scholar N. T. Wright brings you inside the Scriptures to grasp the full, breathtaking hope Jesus offers the world, and its impact on your life today.

Gain an exciting new vision for your life on earth in light of your future in heaven. Wonderful as is the promise of heaven, a glorious hereafter is just part of what salvation is about.

What about today? Jesus called his followers the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Your life here and now is of tremendous consequence, and what you believe about the future has a direct impact on how you live in the present.

In six transforming, faith-inspiring sessions, premiere biblical scholar N. T. Wright opens your eyes to the amazing full scope of what God's Word has to say about the world to come and the world that is.

Filled with discussion questions, thoughts for reflection, and ideas for personal application, this study guide will help you get the most out of each session as you explore such questions as What is heaven really like? Is our main duty as Christians simply to help non-Christians get there? What hope does the gospel hold for this present life? In what ways does God intend for us to experience that hope personally and spread its healing power to the world around us?

Surprised by Hope provides a clearer vision both of the future and of God's kingdom at hand today. This study provides individual and group activities, additional background material, and between-session personal studies that will enhance your experience of the video sessions.

Sessions include:

  1. Hope for the World
  2. The Hope of the Resurrection
  3. The Hope of Heaven
  4. The Hope of Jesus’ Second Coming
  5. The Hope of Salvation
  6. The Hope of the Church

Designed for use with the Surprised by Hope Participant's Guide (sold separately).

Matt & Julie Canlis
The Godspeed film follows the story of a young American pastor whose desire to change the world grinds to a halt in a slow Scottish parish. With the help of mentors Eugene Peterson and N. T. Wright, pastor Matt Canlis discovers how Jesus walked this earth at three miles an hour. He saved the world at a walking pace – a pace of knowing and being known.

The Godspeed documentary challenges each Christian to live at Godspeed – a way of life that allows them to be face to face to their Lord, their neighbor, and themselves.

The follow-on Videos & Study Guide dare us to live more deeply in our communities, knowing that our growth is not in size or numbers but in quality of life and relationships. Each member of your small group will need a personal copy of the Godspeed Eight-week Video & Study Guide, which includes space for personal reflection, Scripture meditation, prayer, and instructions for facilitators at the back. Each session with Matt Canlis, Eugene Peterson, and N. T. Wright lasts 90 minutes.

In addition to the Godspeed Study Guide, a great resource for every small group is Julie Canlis’s book A Theology of the Ordinary where you can further explore the theology behind Godspeed. (What originally brought Matt to Scotland was his wife Julie’s pursuit of a PhD in Theology). After winning awards for her book, she settled into raising four kids in Methlick and dove into the ordinary “school of the parish.” The joys and challenges of living an ordinary life in the presence of God gave rise to this little book, and is the lived theology behind Godspeed.
