Refreshing & Insightful,
This review is from: The New Testament for Everyone (Hardcover)
As a reader of the "For Everyone" series by Rev. Dr. Wright, I was greatly anticipating this compilation of the translations from that series. I am not in the least disappointed.
While I have not completed reading the entire New Testament translation, I am very pleased with the flow and ease of understanding of what I have read so far: Matthew, Mark, Acts, Romans, 1 & 2 Timothy, and James.
I admit a prejudice for NOT using "Christ" as the surname of Jesus of Nazareth, so I definitely like the use of Messiah instead. Also, the many references to Jesus as King, perhaps more easily understood in Great Britain, is a refreshing reminder of Who is in charge and the level of His authority.
