The good news of Jesus, Messiah, Son of God. Thus begins the gospel according to Mark, and the notion of gospel, proclamation, announcement has been at the core of Christian confession for as long as there have been Christians. Yet that central news has given way in this historical moment or that, whether to an attempt at a timeless philosophy or to a regime of self-help and good advice. In his 2015 book Simply Good News, N.T. Wright calls Christians once again to tell the old, old story as news, to insist anew that our word to the world be that God has done something and is doing something and will do something again.
