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.

This book has been amazing. I've just finished the Ephesians section, reading one passage and it's corresponding comments each day. I have never been sad to finish a bible study before, but I've started reading it again because I really want to take it all in. It has been a pleasure to pick this book up every day.

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.

Paul for Everyone is the book that my church recommended for reading during Lent. I have found it very useful and the interpretations are easy to follow.

This book is the latest of Tom Wright's New Testament commentaries that I have read and it is up to the standards of the other books in this fascinating series. The Holy Spirit definitely draws closer to me when I am reading these commentaries. In this book the author talked about how Christians should make Jesus the centre of our thoughts about everything and this insight really hit home with me. He really should be with you every step of the way and he did say that he would be with us "always".
