A series of guides to the books of the New Testament suitable for personal or group use. Each short passage has its own translation of the Bible and is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information making it appropriate for daily study also. Making use of his true scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright manages to unravel the great complexity of John's extraordinary gospel. 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 high-flown learning, but of those who come to it with humility and hope'. Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to furnish them with his own fresh translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanation and suggestion, and thoughts as to how it can be relevant to our lives today. No knowledge of techincal jargon is required. The series is suitable for personal or group use and the format makes it appropriate also for daily study.
