Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tom Wright's eye-opening comments on the Gospel of Matthew and what it might mean for us are combined, passage-by-passage, with his fresh translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the urgency and excitement of Matthew's Gospel in a way few writers have.

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.

Synopsis:

An entirely new and approachable translation of the New Testament and study guides by a world-renowned scholar, Tom Wright. The series provide invaluable background detail and a wealth of information to help the reader understand each passage in a richer way. The implication of the text for the life of the modern reader is also explored. The translation of the Bible text is underpinned by deep scholarship, but has an immediacy and freshness that makes it easy to read, and set it apart from other modern-language translations. The guides assume no detailed knowledge of the New Testament, and are therefore suitable for beginners as well as more experienced students of the Bible. Each volume stands alone, though the series will build into an unrivaled guide to the entire New Testament, book by book.
