Overview

Renowned scholar N. T. Wright brings us the latest volumes in his acclaimed For Everyone series of New Testament commentaries: Acts, parts one and two. Part one covers chapters one through twelve. Each of these brief guides offers a short passage of text, in Wright's own accessible translation, followed by a highly readable and thought-provoking discussion. Background information about the text, helpful explanations about its meanings, and thoughts as to how it can be relevant to our lives today are woven together seamlessly in Wrights gracious and inviting style. A glossary is provided at the back of the books to provide further explanation of less-common words and phrases. These books are useful for Christian education classes for both youth and adults, as preaching aids, in confirmation classes, and as daily devotions.

Praise for the Print Edition

A rare event: a commentary that is learned without being stuffy, accessible without being reductionist. Tom Wright joins us in our homes and workplaces, our sanctuaries and classrooms, in genial, prayerful conversation over this text that forms our lives, the New Testament Scriptures.

The Christian Century

There is now an immense hunger in our society for the Bible. Many folk want access to it, without the usual shrill authoritarian trappings. These studies by Wright are exactly to the point . . . well grounded in scholarship, accessible, and intensely contemporary. The series is a most welcome one!

—Walter Brueggemann, Professor Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”
