Product Description

Review

'Like Mark's Gospel, Wright's pace gradually builds up, a massive locomotive steaming towards the 'perfect storm' of Holy Week and Easter, demanding a commitment costing not less than everything: 'We cannot be Easter people if we are not first Good Friday people and then Holy Saturday people.' A fitting end; and beginning.' --Church Times

'Tom Wright has a special gift for explaining things that are very deep, and at times, quite complex in a way that makes them understandable . . . What makes this book especially refreshing is the sense of enthusiasm for the Gospel text that is unmistakable.' --Church of Ireland Gazette

'This is a book that can be read with profit at any time of the year.' --Good Book Stall

Format: Paperback
Some books of theology manage to fit 'hermeneutics', 'exegesis', 'praxis' and 'soteriology' all into one sentence. Very impressive. Others make suitable texts for 'Children's Church'. But this is the Goldilocks of theological works, pitched at just the right level of brow for the vast majority of the reading public.

As multi-layered as an onion, Professor N T Wright`s new book on Mark draws you in at once with its matter-of-fact, chatty, deceptively simple prose. Each `chapter' covers one day between Ash Wednesday and Easter Saturday. Using the prescribed lectionary for the day, Professor Wright focuses on a few verses and offers us his translation, and his exegesis. If, like me, you prefer a more traditional version of the bible, I suggest you begin by reading the passage in that version before plunging into the Wright text. Like all the best teachers, he makes some of the expected points about each passage, so that you are to some extent lulled into thinking you are keeping up well (if not actually ahead of him), but he then slips in an explanation, a twist or a new perspective, which sends you back to the beginning of the chapter to start again. I do not mean to suggest that the text is difficult, far from it, but there is a good deal more meat on the bones that you might anticipate at first glance.

Consciously or unconsciously, Professor Wright echoes the style of Mark's gospel itself. Alec McCowan memorably did a one-man show in which he simply spoke Mark's gospel, having first learnt it by heart. Here he describes how he became gripped by the text. Although he did `not regard himself as a religious man',

"Certainly, when I was working on St Mark and performing St Mark, there were signs.

This is a Lent lectionary resource using Tom Wright's 'For Everyone' Bible translation. It's the third in a three-volume series to cover the three years of the Revised Common Lectionary. The Gospel designated for Year B was Mark, and so for each day of Lent, here we have a reading from this Gospel for weekdays, interspersed with thematically relevant readings from certain Psalms, Epistles and other Gospels for the weekend readings. These are all followed with a reflection by Tom Wright, in his own inimitable style of lived personal experience, or a vignette or mini parable drawn from contemporary life, used to illustrate and draw out the Gospel message.
The book has grown out of a project to encourage Lent reading in the diocese of Durham, and the Inroduction breathes excitement about the idea and possibilities springing from a large number of people all reading, studying and praying the same texts, 'Big Read' style.

As with other 'For Everyone' books, Tom Wright is excellent in hammering home just how profoundly revolutionary and world changing the Gospel events and message are, in a way that will lift them out of stale Sunday sermon doldrums, or the kind of familiarity that has bred contempt. The 'For Everyone' scripture translation is also fresh and clear without being patronising or robbing the words of their power and grandeur.

This is a Lent book that I can recommend placing at the heart of your Easter journey.

My wife and I are enjoying reading his daily thoughts on the passages of Mark's Gospel set for Lent Year B - we did Matthew last year - we started the series a year late and so will do this year's readings on Luke next year! We have found Tom Wright's comments are clear and challenging - just what we needed for our approach to Easter. This second hand copy was in pristine condition and arrived very promptly - wonderful value for 1p + p&p (£1.28)!

The ideal companion to a thoughtful meditative Lent,Tom Wright's scholarship enables him to produce a new translation and fresh explanations.His deceptively simple style makes each day's reading memorable and the study of Mark's Gospel as a whole makes the Christian story more meaningful. A study aide,a walk with a wise and gently humorous companion,this book is superb.

I enjoyed this very much, although I found the modern biblical translations a little irritating. Each section was the ideal length for a daily meditation, and I found the personal anecdotes from the author interesting and illuminating. I read this on my Kindle so was a little surprised to find that it carried on for a further week after Easter, but the readings did reflect why - and it gave some completion to the Easter theme. Highly recommended.

As with all tom wrights books this an excellent one. very clearly written with just enough for each day of Lent. I like the way he explains what the text would have meant in its day and then invites us to consider how we might respond to the challenges of Jesus now.

The book contains the readings for each day of Lent from Ash Wednesday through to Pentecost. The readings are supplemented by a daily commentary by Tom Wright, explaining the background to the reading and challenging those using the book for whatever purpose to reflect, act, think or pray about any aspect of the reading or explanation that jumps out to them.

I've been using this as part of an online housegroup, in conjuction with the #BigBible Project. It has proven to be excellent material for its purpose and I believe that it will provide food for thought for many in times to come.

Highly Recommended.
