This translation is a treasure. It is an invaluable addition needed to any Pastor or serious student of the New Testament.

I'm not a scholar so i can't comment on the accuracy of the translation but it reads incredibly well. Maybe the newness hasn't worn off yet but this is by far my favorite translation to pick up and read for pleasure. Other versions frequently claim readability and literary beauty but this one pulls it off masterfully.

While staying true to the original texts, N.T. Wright brings a fresh perspective to the familiar stories and letters of the New Testament. This translation helped me to get past the familiar language of the King James Version that I grew up with to see the gospels and epistles with fresh eyes.

Having read many translations and versions of the New Testament, I did not find anything unique or especially helpful in Wrights's New Testament. I would be helpful to anyone who does not have a New Testament or one in contemporary language.
