Book Description

20 Jan 2012 Lent for Everyone
The third in the massively successful Lent for Everyone series focuses on the Gospel of Mark, taking the reader through the designated Lectionary readings for every day of Lent and Easter. The New Testament passages are Tom Wright's own lively and accessible translations from The New Testament for Everyone (SPCK, 2011). Each extract is followed by a freshly written reflection and a prayer that will encourage readers to ponder the relevance of Mark's Gospel for their own lives. Lent for Everyone: Mark, Year B is an ideal study companion that will help to make Lent a period of rich discovery and growth for both individuals and groups.

Product Description

Review

'Like Mark's Gospel, Wright's pace gradually builds up, a massive locomotive steaming towards the 'perfect storm' of Holy Week and Easter, demanding a commitment costing not less than everything: 'We cannot be Easter people if we are not first Good Friday people and then Holy Saturday people.' A fitting end; and beginning.' --Church Times

'Tom Wright has a special gift for explaining things that are very deep, and at times, quite complex in a way that makes them understandable . . . What makes this book especially refreshing is the sense of enthusiasm for the Gospel text that is unmistakable.' --Church of Ireland Gazette

'This is a book that can be read with profit at any time of the year.' --Good Book Stall

5.0 out of 5 stars A Goldilocks Of A Theology Book 14 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
Some books of theology manage to fit 'hermeneutics', 'exegesis', 'praxis' and 'soteriology' all into one sentence. Very impressive. Others make suitable texts for 'Children's Church'. But this is the Goldilocks of theological works, pitched at just the right level of brow for the vast majority of the reading public.

As multi-layered as an onion, Professor N T Wright`s new book on Mark draws you in at once with its matter-of-fact, chatty, deceptively simple prose. Each `chapter' covers one day between Ash Wednesday and Easter Saturday. Using the prescribed lectionary for the day, Professor Wright focuses on a few verses and offers us his translation, and his exegesis. If, like me, you prefer a more traditional version of the bible, I suggest you begin by reading the passage in that version before plunging into the Wright text. Like all the best teachers, he makes some of the expected points about each passage, so that you are to some extent lulled into thinking you are keeping up well (if not actually ahead of him), but he then slips in an explanation, a twist or a new perspective, which sends you back to the beginning of the chapter to start again. I do not mean to suggest that the text is difficult, far from it, but there is a good deal more meat on the bones that you might anticipate at first glance.

Consciously or unconsciously, Professor Wright echoes the style of Mark's gospel itself. Alec McCowan memorably did a one-man show in which he simply spoke Mark's gospel, having first learnt it by heart. Here he describes how he became gripped by the text. Although he did `not regard himself as a religious man',

"Certainly, when I was working on St Mark and performing St Mark, there were signs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly readable 21 April 2012
By Jpf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this very much, although I found the modern biblical translations a little irritating. Each section was the ideal length for a daily meditation, and I found the personal anecdotes from the author interesting and illuminating. I read this on my Kindle so was a little surprised to find that it carried on for a further week after Easter, but the readings did reflect why - and it gave some completion to the Easter theme. Highly recommended.

Our Churches Together group share a Lent course each year. This year we used this as our guide. IT is an easy read with a lot of punch and thought provoking. I believe this is the best course we have ever followed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stimulating Study 21 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My wife and I are enjoying reading his daily thoughts on the passages of Mark's Gospel set for Lent Year B - we did Matthew last year - we started the series a year late and so will do this year's readings on Luke next year! We have found Tom Wright's comments are clear and challenging - just what we needed for our approach to Easter. This second hand copy was in pristine condition and arrived very promptly - wonderful value for 1p + p&p (1.28)!
