Introducing an exciting, accessible New Testament commentary series FOR EVERYONE!Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal use, or daily devotions.
Writing in an accessible and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to approach the rich and many-sided story of the book of Acts. Wright shows how the book builds on Luke s gospel, laying out the continuing work and teaching of the now risen and ascended Jesus in the power of the Spirit. His writing captures the vivid way in which Luke s work draws us all into the story, while leaving the ending open and challenging, inviting Christians today to pick up and carry on the story as we in turn live our lives in the service of Jesus.
N.T.(Tom) Wright (D.Phil., Oxford) has recently retired as Bishop of Durham, and is one of the most influential theologians in the world today. During his long and dynamic ministry career, Wright has successfully blended the roles of pastor, preacher, academic, and popular author. His prolific written output reaches a wide range of readers: his books The New Testament and the People of God; Jesus and the Victory of God; and The Resurrection of the Son of God are monumental works of New Testament scholarship, while his For Everyone commentary series brings the Bible alive for a popular audience. Wright is currently Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.
