'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
