4.0 out of 5 stars Daily readings to enlighten, 18 July 2004
This review is from: Matthew for Everyone - Part 1 Chapters 1-15: Pt. 1 (New Testament for Everyone) (Paperback)
I wanted to go 'back to basics' with some of the gospels, and chose Tom Wright's versions because although he is clearly a committed Christian, he is not emotional or dogmatic. He is an eminent scholar, and understands Jewish history and the context of the world into which Jesus was born, and both in this book and others I have read by him beforehand, this has truly enlightened my view of the gospels and Jesus himself. My personal experience of reading the Bible has always been one of 'new layers of revelation' - one can read a story or passage at different times and extract new levels of meaning. And so Tom Wright is helping me to do this once again.
I have never been disciplined when it comes to reading my Bible daily - but I am finding it easy with this study:
- It includes the daily reading, so you only need to take this book with you when you're out and about
- It includes a write up setting the reading in context and points to make you think
- The write up is long enough to be thought provoking but not so long as to lose one's attention!
I will definitely be buying more books in this series!

Sorry, only just seen your post, so hope you get this! 4 stars because I think that some of the commentaries could do with a little more depth. But that's the nature of this kind of book, I guess - short and punchy.
