This is such a useful series! Tom Wright has been described as the world's leading New Testament expert. Some of what he writes (using the name NT Wright) is technical stuff for academics and theology students but this series is quite different - its specifically written for everyone. And it delivers in a number of different ways:

Tom Wright is really clear and easy to follow - no technical theological language which can be off-putting for the lay reader. He is a good writer!

It does though reflect and draw on his expertise. As Wright puts it in his introduction: "Of course, it matters that some people give time and care to the historical evidence, the meaning of the original words (the early Christians wrote in Greek) and the exact and particular force of what different writers were saying about God, Jesus, the world and themselves. This series is based quite closely on that sort of work. But the point of it all is that the message can get out to everyone, especially to people who wouldn't normally read a book with footnotes and Greek words in it. That's the sort of person for whom these books are written."

I found the books full of insights and stories which help to help you find things you might otherwise have missed in the text, or which present things a slightly different way. So its a very helpful series for the lay Christian who wants to hear the word of God speaking afresh.

The layout, structure and presentation are excellent too. The books are paperback sized but printed on good paper with a decent font. Each section is about four pages long and generally there are 2, 3 or 4 sections for each New Testament chapter. So if, like me, you like to read some of the Bible everyday for between 10 and 30 minutes - this is very useful companion.

I learned so much from this commentary and started to understand the apostle Paul for the first time. The setting of Corinth has surprising similarities with the world within which we live - vague ideas of "spiritual" matters and being a Christian in an "anything goes" atmosphere and looking at what can and can't be compromised in a multi-cultural society.

Tom Wright's writing is very clear and is full of contemporary examples and explanations. He destroys the argument that Paul is a woman-hater just by looking at the context in which Paul operated. His detailed examination of 1 Corinthians demonstrates how closely scripture has to be studied to be understood - the reader benefits from his years of scholarship.

I recommend this book for those who want to explore what it means to live as a Christian - the consequences of their decision to follow Christ.

I bought this book to use in preparation for a talk on 1 Corinthians 1:18. I found the whole book a very useful introduction and exposition of 1 Corinthians. Tom Wright is able to extract a great deal more from the text than you would see at first (or even second or third or one hundredth) glance. He does this without seeming to add to or take away from the message that Paul intended. Sometimes he crams so many ideas into one sentence that I had to read it a few times to make sure I had "got it", but that's a minor niggle. Thoroughly recommended.

At last I have a book which opens up the person of St.Paul to me. Bishop Tom has written a clear and well produced set of Bible studies in the ....for Everyone series but I have to say that this book on St.Paul has to be the best - if I could give it 6 stars or more would.
Clear, interesting - full, up to date. Just super.

Paul writes to a guide a church through its current problems as it's concerned pastor. This early church needs direction, rebuke and correction, and Wright draws on his considerable Biblical understanding to show us Paul's sources and thinking with its application for today.
