4.0 out of 5 stars Romans for everyone 16 Mar. 2008
Tom Wright, also known as N.T.Wright, is the Church of England Bishop of Durham and a leading Bible scholar. He is going through the whole New Testament, providing his own translation of the Greek text, explaining the books for the average reader one by one. His style is easy going without ever being simplistic. He has a knack for being able to explain theological concepts in everyday language. He makes frequent use of illustrations - little stories - make telling points

His study of Romans is in two parts. This book for chapters 1 - 8 and Part 2 for chapters 9 - 16. The second book has now been published.

Wright does not write like someone who has a book of systematic theology in front of them and is now trying to attach various parts of the `Salvation' section to various parts of the text of Romans. He does not write like someone who is more interested in giving us a blow by blow account of Reformation arguments than telling us what the plain meaning of the text is. He does not write as someone whose purpose is to repeat the same basic point about justification by faith over and over again to the exclusion of other themes. The absence of these well worn paths is a relief.

Instead he introduces us to the unfolding argument of the apostle Paul, a Jew who has come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah and therefore King of the whole world. He takes us step by step through Paul's reasoning as Paul explains the salvation that Jesus the King has won by constant reference to the history of Israel. We are now in a new stage of salvation history: one in which all the nations of the world are invited in to be part of God's one family. But of course, this new stage of salvation history flows directly from the preceding stage - God's previous dealing's with Israel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpieced 23 Feb. 2010
By J. C.
Only one word describes this work and the accompanying part 2. Masterpieces. They tie in beautifully with the commentary in Gods Plan Paul's vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent popular commentary 27 Nov. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Packaging/delivery good as usual. Also as usual, Tom Wright writes clearly and engagingly. He only states his opinion on the meaning of the text so some commentators would disagree with him. This is to be expected in a popular commentary. If you want a full range of view you buy a much larger and more expensive commentary. This one is also great for daily readings.

Tom Wright has produced an excellent and scholarly series of books that guide the reader of the New Testament into deeper pathways of understanding. He has an easy, readable style often laced with personal stories to illustrate the exegesis of the passage. I recommend this whole series of the New Testament for Everyone unreservedly.

I have never read any of the bible in depth before, and was concerned that this book might be too complicated for me. However, I found it easy enough for me to follow without being so basic as to be of little value. I couldn't wait to reach the end of this book before ordering Romans Part 2, which I am now making my way through with equal enthusiasm, and have now gone on to order 1 Corinthians. I was also able to discuss the contents of Romans confidently with a visiting speaker at our church, who happens to be a bible translator. The book of Romans has been responsible for bringing many famous individuals (including St Augustine) to a new and deeper understanding of the Christian faith, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to more fully examine this magnificent letter for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great study guide 4 Sept. 2011
A concise guide to the first part of Romans - Wright is clear in his exposition and uses language all can understand and follow. Little or no jargon and what there is is explained. Well worth the purchase.
