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. Tom Wright's eye-opening comments on the gospel and what it might mean for us are combined, passage by passage, with his 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 immediacy 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 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.
