Product Description

Review

'The For Everyone series of commentaries ought to be on the shelves of every preacher, and indeed everyone who takes their Bible seriously . . . Wright has a knack of wearing his learning lightly, but displaying enough of it to give the reader confidence that he knows what he s talking about . . . He writes from a genuinely pastoral heart, and with a deep conviction that the Bible is God s word for us today, not just an historical puzzle for dusty academics.' --Baptist Times

'The translation is uniformly clear and engaging (and it would be good eventually to see the whole NT translation published after the manner of J. B. Phillips) . . . It is hard to imagine any Christian reader or preacher who would not benefit from these volumes.' --Expository Times

'Wright writes wonderfully, accessibly and as smooth as fine chocolate.' --Ship of Fools website

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. DOUGLAS VINE VOICE on 22 Jun 2013
Format: Paperback
Here's the brilliant Tom Wright on the timeless wisdom of some of the richest New Testament passages. His five pacey sections offer short, rich expositions. It may be a small title but it packs a big punch! Wright explains a few texts in an expository style with helpful anecdotes, strong word pictures and meaningful applications. They are full of deeper devotional value. He restates the Bible not merely as a rule book but as a way of deepening an already secure relationship with Jesus.

This quote in particular is really helpful:- "Christianity is not simply a set of beliefs and a rule-book for life, such as anyone could master in a weekend. It is as many-sided as the world itself, full of beauty and mystery and power, and as terrifying and wonderful as God himself. There is always much, much more to learn, to relish, to delight in"

My lingering struggle was that this felt like a summer sampler from the thirty-plus titles that NT Wright has already faithfully offered. It isn't a full treatment, for that wouldn't be possible but it remains a rich primer on the wisdom to be found in the New Testament, and the beauty of the good news instituted in Jesus.

A decent start... 7 Sep 2013
By Jack Gillespie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As this is more of a collection of "wisdom" passages from his other "...for Everyone" series, I liked it. I was hoping it was new material. I'm hoping the publisher isn't about to set a trend here with Wright's work, i.e., a new book with different topics all taken from the various books of this series. If so, I probably won't be buying them. I would rather just get the series themselves and see the passages in context that little bits here and there taken out of context.

With that stated, if you haven't ever read any of Tom's "...for Everyone' books before, and you only wanted to get one book, I might be the one to start with.
WISDOM IN JESUS 19 Jan 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a collection of brief expositions of many passages that point us toward a life of wisdom, from those who heed Jesus' teachings in the sermon on the mount to those who are eagerly awaiting the new heaven and new earth. It is typical N.t. Wright - at a popular level, with many illustrative stories, many of which are autobiographical.
