—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!
Writing in an anecdotal and approachable style, N.T. Wright helps us to see the great sweep of the letter to the Romans. This long-awaited two-volume addition to the hugely popular For Everyone series will be ideal for daily Bible study, a preaching aid, or for those readers who are looking to deepen their understanding of this classic New Testament book.
Wright shows us the liveliness of cosmopolitan Corinth in this commentary, and reveals the wisdom and challenge of Paul’s writing, bringing out the pastoral sensitivity and deep insight that make this letter one of Paul’s crowning achievements.
Writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, N.T. Wright helps us to understand from the beginning of the letter, that something unexplained, yet terrible had happened. We feel the pain of Paul from the very opening lines, as he confronts dreadful issues of sorrow and hurt, emerging with a clearer picture of what it meant to say that Jesus himself suffered for us and rose in triumph. The letter itself moves through tragedy and from there leads into the sunlight.
N.T. Wright’s eye-opening comments on these letters 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 tension and excitement of the time as the letters seek to assert Paul’s authority and his teaching against other influences.
Paul wrote the letters while in prison facing possible death, but their passion and energy are undimmed. They reveal Paul’s longing to see young churches grow in faith and understanding, rooted in Jesus himself, and to see this faith worked out in practice—in one case, through the rehabilitation of a runaway slave. Wright’s stimulating comments are combined with his own translation of the Bible text.
Writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, N.T. Wright helps us to see the pastoral nature of these three letters. They are not just instruction books for junior disciples, but a guide to a way of life, and in many ways appropriate to all Christians.
Two strands in particular run through the letters. First, Paul is anxious that those who profess the faith should allow the gospel to transform the whole of their lives, right down to the deepest parts of their personality. Second, he is anxious that every teacher of the faith should know how to build up the community in mutual support, rather than tear it apart through the wrong sort of teaching and behavior.
Writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, N.T. Wright helps us to find our way round the letter to the Hebrews, one of the most bracing and challenging writings in the New Testament. He acknowledges that people often find it difficult, because some of the ideas it contains are strange to us. Yet, like meeting a new friend, he helps us to find it full of interest and delight, with a powerful message that comes home to today’s and tomorrow’s church as much as it did to yesterday’s. This volume covers the entire book of Hebrews.
Writing in an accessible style, N.T. Wright opens up the wisdom of the letters of James, Peter, John, and Judah (Jude). A vital resource for every church and every Christian, these letters are full of clear, practical advice. Written for those new to the faith, they warn of the dangers and difficulties a young church community would face both within and without, while reveling in the delight of budding faith, hope, and life. Today, these letters are just as relevant as they were 2,000 years ago. They continue to help Christians live with genuine faith in a complex modern age.
Blending scholarly thinking with a conversational style, N.T. Wright helps us to negotiate the final book of the Bible, regarded by many as the most difficult to understand. He encourages us to see how the Revelation of John offers one of the clearest, sharpest visions of God’s ultimate purpose for the whole of creation: the overthrow of evil and the victory of God. In a world that often seems filled with violence, hatred, and suspicion, John’s glorious images of the end of days are a clarion call to all Christians to be tireless, faithful witnesses of God’s love.
