Tom Wright has accomplished a feat in this series. These commentaries are being used by beginning followers of Jesus as well as some of the most seasoned sophisticated pastors I know. All the time, I tell Bible readers 'Begin here!' --Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies North Park University

'This enterprise is probably the most exciting thing to have happened in Christian education in Britain for many years.' --Expository Times

'Wright writes wonderfully, accessibly and as smooth as fine chocolate.' --Ship of Fools website

Another volume which keeps up the standard set in previous publications. The remarkable insights into these letters keep up that freshness of approach which makes them so informative and so readable.

Although I have been aware of this series for some time, I had not ever looked more closely at any of these commentaries and was very pleased to have the opportunity to do so through the NetGalley scheme. I'm pleased with what I've seen. Whilst they are not high-level commentaries nor would I suggest them for use by preachers, I can see them working really well within my church as a resource for further study of the Bible by small groups or individuals wanting to go deeper.

The content is intelligent and helpful, as well as being well-presented. I also like that the commentary includes the Biblical text for each section: this makes it clear what is being discussed at any point. The glossary of terms is another reason why I like this commentary series for those whom I lead - it does not assume that the reader's knowledge is particularly well-developed. This is a very accessible commentary series.

I received free galley copies of Tom Wright's Early Christian Letters for Everyone and Revelation for Everyone from NetGalley in return for an unbiased review.

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.

This is another excellent book in the author's "For Everyone" series of New Testament commentaries, which I have been working my way through fairly systematically over the past few weeks. This book examines the epistles of James,Peter,John and Jude in the author's pertinent,intelligent and anecdotal manner. As with his other books, Tom Wright brought to me fresh insights into these texts and has helped me to understand them better. I had struggled with reconciling James' talk about faith without deeds being dead with the general Pauline message ,best exemplified in Romans and John's gospel, which both talk of justification by faith alone. However Wright's writings managed to allow me intellectually to understand better where James was coming from. I consider myself to be a Christian, but I am perhaps ,like many others I'm sure , an armchair Christian, going to church occasionally but not really involved in any kind of social life for one reason or another. However as I read this book I could definitely feel the Holy Spirit joining me in its quiet,peaceful way. I have immersed myself in Tom Wrights books as I seek to let Jesus more fully into my life and to crucify my sinful nature. They are definitely helping with this process and I am enjoying reading them greatly.

I own several books by Tom Wright and found each one to be excellent.
This volume, one of a series, is equally excellent - it tackles very difficult subjects in a clear and easily understandable way without ever losing out on Tom Wright's top class academic standards.
I would strongly recommend this volume to anyone wishing to further their knowledge on some of the most wonderful letters in scripture.

Tom Wright always produces great material. He makes the bible accessible without 'dumbing it down'. This volume is yet another 'winner' with me.

Very user friendly this is no ordinary commentary, but a written "talk" on broad themes with some pertinent illustrations. Best used alongside another more standard commentary such as Alec Motyer's book, the Message of James. I liked it and used it in the bible studies I've been leading.
