Writing in an accessible and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to approach the rich and many-sided story of the book of Acts. Wright shows how the book builds on Luke’s gospel, laying out the continuing work and teaching of the now risen and ascended Jesus in the power of the Spirit. His writing captures the vivid way in which Luke’s work draws us all in, while leaving the ending open and challenging, inviting Christians today to pick up and carry on the good news as we in turn live our lives in the service of Jesus.
… for EVERYONE
A major new series of guides to the books of the New Testament.
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.
The series is suitable for personal or group use. The format makes it appropriate for daily study.
‘This enterprise is probably the most exciting thing to have happened in Christian education in Britain for many years.’
‘Wright writes wonderfully, accessibly and as smooth as fine chocolate.’
