Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tom Wright's Luke  Feb 22, 2007
This is a wonderful book to encourage a thoughtful reading of this gospel. Tom Wright has a beautiful style of bringing the stories Luke relates into modern vernacular.A great addition to the study of the Gospels.
 
A Study of Luke  Jul 13, 2006
This study book is being used by a group of women who meet every Monday morning to study the Bible and we are happy with this choice.

The author, Bishop Tom Wright has an easy approach to the Gospel of St. Luke, and his commentary is written in what I would call every-day English. The chapters of Luke are broken down into sensible segments followed by Bishop Wright's commentary which generates good discussion. The glossary in the back is also useful.

We are looking forward to the Acts for Everyone which I believe is not in print yet.

Simply the BEST  Jul 5, 2006
I cannot say enough good things about Wright's ability to write simply, with no big words, yet maintain deep theological and historical insight into the Scripture. His interpretations and ability to follow through with the gospel's on thought are unmatched in scholarship.

Every book in this series has Tom Wright's translations (of a periscope or small section of text, followed by a quick story or anecdote, followed by the Wright interpretation. It is easy to read and enjoyable.

There is much to be said about this particular book, but the best parts were his treatment of some of the hard to understand parables of Jesus such as the prodigal son, the wicked tenants, and the rich man and Lazarus. His thoughts here (and in all the synoptics) on Jesus and the son of man sayings reflecting back on Daniel 7 are insightful. He makes good sense of the "keep watch and be alert" sayings. His treatment of the Emmaus road story is also right on point. He relates the opening of the eyes of Cleopas and his companion as Jesus broke bread and gave thanks with the opening of the eyes of Adam and Eve when they realized they were naked after sharing the forbidden fruit. Wright points out that Jeus has redeemed us from the curse that came through the first shared meal of Genesis and brought sin and death into the world. This commentary is full of unique insights such as this and so I highly recommend for everyone to read.
 
Deep theology appropriately dosed for daily use  Nov 15, 2005
NT Wright is a scholarly academic and a highly relevant one at that. So it is a treat when he puts on his devotional hat and uses his more informal name of Tom Wright to write Luke for Everyone, he brings deep insight to wherever the gospel story takes you that day in a way that you feel you can appropriate it into your life.

You can readily feel the tensions between the agenda of the Jewish leaders to bring about God's kingdom through strict observance and battle and of Jesus who seeks to bring about God's kingdom through repentance even rebelling against Roman rule. You can feel the pressure rising.

Too often a devotional is thin on depth or a bit sappy, but Wright's book has meat that is cut into bite sized pieces. He continues his mission to go beyond the frequent stance of many who feel they know all there is to know about Jesus and have lost the ability to stay alert in their life and miss the many deep and enriching truths that Jesus brings to us.
 
A good daily devotional, but not an exhaustive study  Mar 6, 2003
This book is much easier to digest on the first reading than many of Wright's other works, although a bit less rewarding. The book is structured so that small sections of the gospel text are translated by Wright and followed by his mini exegesis.

I found the book to be thought provoking and not as weighty as one might expect. This is refreshing after reading NTPG and JVG, Luke For Everyone is a layman's version of these two.
