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 illuminating bible teaching. Simply explained and helpfully applied it really is for everyone.
Written in bite size chunks too, it can readily be used for daily reading.
Makes the message of Hebrews crystal clear.
An enjoyable read

Our Church home fellowship group recently started to study Hebrews and used Tom Wright's commentary. We are a small, lay led group and take it in turns to lead the study based on a commentary. This commentary is brilliant, very readable, easy to understand and follow and ideal if you have a study group like ours, or you might want to use this commentary for your own personal study. Our Vicar commented that she hated Hebrews, well, she might like to try this study guide and change her mind. At least there are a group of us in our church who now know that Hebrews was not, on the best evidence, written by St Paul, unlike the person who read a passage from Hebrews in our church the other Sunday. A great book for personal or group use.

I found this book really good. Hebrews is broken down into bite sized chunks and then commented on. It is full of very helpful and insightful comments, down to earth and yet thought provoking. It is a fantastic book at bringing the reader to discover a letter that just makes a lot of how wonderful Jesus is! It helps to get a good grip on how the Old Testament is brought to fulfilment through the life and death of Jesus and what that means for us now.

I have nearly completed Tom Wrights "For Everyone" series of books and "Hebrews for Everyone" is as good as the rest of them. It is written in the author's customary intelligent and anecdotal manner with every passage clearly explained by someone who clearly has a deep knowledge of his subject matter. I feel closer to Jesus when I read Tom Wrights books and this is a great comfort given that I have to spend my life being tormented by demons who tell me that I am damned and who want to bring me as low as they can. Maybe other Christians have the same affliction ? One thing that I find it hard to accept in New Testament teaching is that those in authority somehow are appointed by God and that Christians should defer to them unquestioningly . Most of the authority figures whom I come across are non religious and in the government of my country , Northern Ireland , there are unrepentant terrorists holding senior executive positions. These terrorists in suits are irredeemably atheist and I fail to see how God is using them for his divine purposes. I think it would be more accurate , but clearly more controversial, to say that those in authority are in some way under the influence of the Devil and are pursuing his plan for control of the world which will lead to the rise of the Antichrist and the beginning of the End Times. However I'm not sure that Tom Wright would agree with this view.

Tom Wright has produced an excellent and scholarly series of books that guide the reader of the New Testament into deeper pathways of understanding. He has an easy, readable style often laced with personal stories to illustrate the exegesis of the passage. I recommend this whole series of the New Testament for Everyone unreservedly.

Of all the ‘For Everyone’ series of books, this one naturally provokes the most jokes, typically involving cups of tea. However, such frivolity is not the subject this book.

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of the ‘For Everyone’ series, they are commentaries on the bible. Tom Wright has written all of the New Testament commentaries whilst John Goldingay is making good progress with the Old Testament. In addition to providing commentary, Wright also gives his own translation of the book of Hebrews. The intention is to make it as accessible as possible. So while he discusses issues of great depth, he doesn’t go into all the depth that he could.

The format is such that you get a section of the text (say, 6-15 verses) followed by Wright’s take on it. Sometimes that interpretation begins with a radically left turn. We get little windows into Wright’s world, whether it be his family or professional life. But these are the mark of a preacher who wishes to relate to his audience an exposition of scripture that is firmly rooted in the life and world that people can relate to. Of course, this may be limited to 21st century British christians, but that happens to be a demographic into which I fit.

The overarching theme that Wright brings forth throughout the book is the idea of “better”. This is something that is prevalent throughout the book, and is by no means a unique insight that Wright brings. What he does bring is a gentle insight into the Jewish background against which Hebrews was written. For it was to a primarily Jewish-Christian audience. This was a somewhat more thorough approach than that adopted by my church, which began a series on Hebrews shortly after I finished this book.
