"Wright has accomplished a feat in this series. All the time, I tell Bible readers, 'Begin here!'" --Scot McKnight, North Park University --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This is the fourth book within Tom's 'for Everyone' series. My wife and I try to read one commentary on a bible passage a day and this takes about 15 minutes. We like to stay with one book from the Bible at a time from start to finish and the 'Everyone' series enables us to do this. Tom is a well reputed scholar and a joy to read though the chunks we read are enough to take in at one reading. We have purchased from high-street retailers before but this 'used' copy was just as good as them. Very good value.

This certainly lives up to the title of 'for everyone'. This is a very accessible and easy to understand treatment of Acts 13-28. Anyone who has read Acts 1-12 Pt 1 by this author will not be disappointed. Tom Wright writes in a way that brings his subject to life with relevant illustrations and a comprehensive background to the material. First century AD Rome and its Empire comes alive as we follow the journey of the apostle Paul on his missionary journeys around the eastenr Mediterranean. We gain a deeper understanding of the man Paul himself. His life and teaching is put in the context of the times and society inn which he lived. Altogther a worthy follow-up to Acts For Everyone Pt 1 and well worth reading by both theologians and lay persons alike.

Tom Wright's commentaries were recommended by our Rural Dean. I use these commentaries in my sermon research and they are very helpful. The biblical text has been translated from the original Greek into modern day English, understandable by most people. The commentary on each text uses modern examples of incidents, places, people that any of us might come across or experience, to help understanding. The book can be used in personal Bible study and quiet time and/or for group activity and/or help in preparing talks and sermons. I highly recommend Tom Wrights 'Everyone' commentaries.

Having used Acts for Everyone Part 1 very effectively in Group Discussion I am sure from first looking at it that Part 2 will be equally useful.

I am working my way through the new testament and what better way than to be led by an expert. If you wish to read and fully understand the new testament then this is the way to do it
