Paul wrote the letters while in prison facing possible death, but their passion and energy are undimmed.

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.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

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.

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.

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.
