Overview

John for Everyone, Part 1: Chapters 1-10 by N.T. Wright

Making use of his scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright manages to unravel the great complexity of the extraordinary Gospel of John. He describes it as "one of the great books in the literature of the world; and part of its greatness is the way it reveals its secrets not just to a high-flown leaning but to those who come to it with humility and hope." Wright's stimulating comments are combined with his own fresh and inviting translation of the Bible text.

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.

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. The book of John has long puzzled me, and Tom Wright does an excellent job of explaining it 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 John and the other Gospels.
