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 combines scholarship with an ability to communicate warmly with non-specialist readers. He is the author of many books, including THE LORD AND HIS PRAYER, WHO WAS JESUS?, THE CHALLENGE OF JESUS, and TWELVE MONTHS OF SUNDAYS:REFLECTIONS ON BIBLE READINGS. He is Canon Theologian at Westminster Abbey and SPCK Research Fellow.
A major new series of guides to the books of the New Testament.
Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to povide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to furnish them with his own 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 technical jargon is required.
The series is suitable for personal or group use.
The format makes it appropriate for daily study.
