Overview

Tom Wright's eye-opening comments on these letters are combined, passage-by-passage, with his fresh and inviting new translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the tension and excitement of the time as the letters seek to assert Paul's authority and his teaching against other influences.

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 study, or daily devotions.

Editorial Reviews

In this new series [Wright] excels as a communicator, making this series the most exciting study guide since William Barclay's Daily Study Bible.
CBA Marketplace
Pastors, evangelists, and Sunday school teachers will love this ... [Wright] gives an exciting, original translation of the Greek text and some insightful questions for personal reflection or group discussion. He includes a helpful glossary of terms at the end and highlights these so readers can better understand technical terms. Although it's written for adult readers unfamiliar with the Bible, younger readers will benefit from his clear explanations and timely applications of the text.
Expository Times

Baptist Times
For those seeking to deepen their understanding of the Bible or preachers looking for ways to apply the passage on a Sunday morning, this looks like a very good series to acquire.
Christianity and Renewal
There is a fair chance that, for many ordinary Christians, these pocket-size volumes will turn out to be the publishing event of the year.
The Christian Herald
If you wish to meet afresh the Jesus who broke into people's lives while on earth, I heartily recommend these guides to you.

What People are saying about this

"Tom Wright is a great gift to the universal Church! He is an extraordinary scholar with the uncommon ability to translate painstakingly and practically and yet to write with startling wisdom, rousing wit, and gracious accessibility. His commentaries in the "...for Everyone" series will stimulate ardent Bible study, greater zeal for Christian living, and deeper commitment in congregational life. With the addition of maps and glossaries of crucial words highlighted in the text, these books are superb for both individual and communal study. I pray the wide use of them will help to counteract our culture's despicable biblical illiteracy." (popular speaker and author of Reaching Out without Dumbing Down and Unfettered Hope)

"A rare event: a commentary that is learned without being stuffy, accessible without being reductionist. Tom Wright joins us in our homes and workplaces, our sanctuaries and classrooms, in genial, prayerful conversation over this text that forms our lives, the New Testament scriptures." (Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, and author of The Message)
