From the man Newsweek called "the world's leading New Testament Scholar" comes a fresh translation of the New Testament. This is The Message (3 million sold) for a new generation.^
The Translation is extracted from New Testament for Everyone Series.
Why another translation of the New Testament? As Tom Wright points out in his Preface: 'Translating the New Testament is something that each generation ought to be doing. Just as Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, we can never simply live on yesterday's bread, on the interpretations and translations of previous generations.'
^^Professor Wright's concern is that Scripture should be something that everyone can read, understand and enjoy. Without Scripture, how can we know the mind and heart of our loving God? So this renowned biblical scholar has undertaken a tremendous task: to produce a modern and accessible version of the New Testament. He has drawn together the translations of Scripture from his For Everyone guides to make a seamless whole. Broken up into easy-to-read, bite-sized chunks and illustrated throughout with clear, helpful maps, this is a new rendering of ancient wisdom that can be read like a novel, studied in sections or used as an aid to daily devotion.^^
The text of the New Testament, drawn from the New Testament for Everyone series, fully integrated to smooth joins between sections and provide a level of internal consistency, for example in how individual Greek terms are rendered. It also represents Tom Wright's view of the New Testament, something that has helped to shape his theology.
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.
