A great new translation, 19 Feb. 2012
Tom Wright's own translation of the New Testament is fresh and timely. It reads very well and allows the reader to hear the words of Jesus and his first followers in a more contemporary way. Wright's considerable scholarship, knowledge of biblical languages and many years of study of the New Testament also give the assurance of an authoritative rendering of the original text. It is an ideal gift for someone who has not yet read the New Testament.
