Renowned scholar N. T. Wright brings us the latest volumes in his acclaimed For Everyone series of New Testament commentaries Acts, parts 1 and 2. Each of these brief guides offers a short passage of text, Wright's own accessible translation, followed by a highly readable and thought-provoking discussion. Background information about the text, explanations about its meanings, and thoughts as to how it is relevant to our lives today are woven together seamlessly in Wright's gracious and inviting style. A glossary is provided at the back of the books to provide further explanation of less common words and phrases. These books are useful for Christian education classed for both youth and adults, as preaching aids in confirmation classes, and as daily devotions.
Writing in an accessable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to approach the rich and many-sided story of the book of Acts. Wright shows how the book builds on Luke's Gospel, laying out the continuing work and teaching of the now risen and ascended Jesus in the power of the Spirit. His writing captures the vivid way in which Luke's work draws us all into he story, while leaving the ending open and challenging, inviting Christians today to pick up and carry on the story as we in turn live our lives in the service of Jesus.
Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.
