This book, along with others in the '...for Everyone' series by Tom Wright, has enhanced my understanding of the Gospels more than anything else I've heard or read in over 30 years as a Christian. There are so many sayings, parables, and stories, especially in Matthew, that have always puzzled me or troubled me, and Tom Wright does an excellent job of explaining them in the context of the world that Jesus and the early Christians lived in. It's not just a dry, academic book, but is understandable and relevant. The book is written in short sections that I have time to read as a daily devotional or as I get a few spare moments here and there. It has challenged me to re-think who Jesus really was and what that means to my life, as well as freeing me from some of the false understandings I've had based on Matthew and the other Gospels.Was this review helpful?
