As a reader of the "For Everyone" series by Rev. Dr. Wright, I was greatly anticipating this compilation of the translations from that series. I am not in the least disappointed.

While I have not completed reading the entire New Testament translation, I am very pleased with the flow and ease of understanding of what I have read so far: Matthew, Mark, Acts, Romans, 1 & 2 Timothy, and James.

I admit a prejudice for NOT using "Christ" as the surname of Jesus of Nazareth, so I definitely like the use of Messiah instead. Also, the many references to Jesus as King, perhaps more easily understood in Great Britain, is a refreshing reminder of Who is in charge and the level of His authority.

Having not that long ago opened my parcel, digested (metaphorically) its contents I can now offer my review of the translation (to be referred to as NTFE). Of course this is not a long considered review based on continued usage; I do however feel it captures the strengths and some of the weaknesses of Tom Wright's translation.

Presentation.
Unusually chunky, hardback in a very 'trad' package (this is SPCK after all), the dust jacket in the 'everyone' commentary style. The book has one ribbon page marker.
No footnotes whether textual, or translation alternatives anywhere. Although there are two extra endings in Mark with a reference to the foreword. The text look is pretty basic but perhaps not Spartan. Ordinary paper which of course makes it 'chunky'. A 6 page foreword is helpful but some more comments would have been so helpful at key points. In the foreword he explains the difficulty of translating dikaiosyne in Romans (traditionally 'righteousness') which of course is a hinge point of the 'new perspective' on Paul of which Tom Wright is one of the champions and chief populariser at least in the Evangelical world ( I would recommend his 'Justification if you wish to find out more). His comments are an example of brevity and succinctness. He states that he views his work as a translation and not a paraphrase and adequately explains why 'literal' is not necessarily better or more accurate.
Passages regarded as poetry are indented e.g. Php 2v6-11
The volume includes 39 maps and diagrams in plain black line on white, simple, effective, useful but plain, almost all of them are in Acts.
The book of Jude (called Judah) occupies two sides. Titus occupies two and a half sides.

Tom Wright has done a good job here presenting a translation with informal, accessible language, but holding fast to the original text. Great for casual reading and useful for a comparison when engaging with deeper study. At this price it should be a part of every Bible student's library.

Tom Wright's own translation of the New Testament is fresh and timely. It reads very well and allows the reader to hear the words of Jesus and his first followers in a more contemporary way. Wright's considerable scholarship, knowledge of biblical languages and many years of study of the New Testament also give the assurance of an authoritative rendering of the original text. It is an ideal gift for someone who has not yet read the New Testament.

I find this Translation by Bishop Tom Wright very clear and very helpful. Its scholarship is first class, but it is very readable for "everyone"

It doesn't have much poetry about it's rendering of the familiar gospels and letters of the New Testament; if you want that stick to the King James version, the New English Bible or the NIV. It does, however, achieve Tom Wright's aim of making the texts real and contemporary, and therefore ore immediate and accessible. It serves as a very useful addition for Christians and the curious.

Just read some pages, but I see immediately that this is a book that's a perfect supplement to the Bible. Easy to follow and read.
Just like "Simply Jesus"
Great books both of them
Will be more from this Author

My frustration lies not with the translation, but with its publishing as a Kindle edition. It seems that no real thought has been put into how one might navigate from book-to-book, and verse-to-verse. This remains an enormous weakness on nearly all Kindle Bibles, in my opinion, with the exception of the ESV Study Bible. However, this version is the worst of any that I have seen in that navigation by chapter is not possible.

What the ESV does well is the use of the Direct Verse Jump (DVJ) feature. Why is this not standard on all Kindle Bibles??!!
