Tom Wrights eye-opening comments on the gospel and what it might mean for us are combined, passage by passage, with his new translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholars understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the immediacy of Matthews gospel in a way few writers have.
Tom Wright is the Bishop of Durham and is a regular broadcaster on radio and television. He is the author of over forty books, including the For Everyone guides to the New Testament, the highly acclaimed series, Christian Origins and the Question of God, and the best-selling books Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope (all SPCK)
The new series of guides to the books of the New Testamtent by Tom Wright, Canon-theologian at Westminster Abbey, is absolutely first-class. In a sense he is a modern William Barclay, save his exposition is more trust-worthy and his illustrations lack the sentiment.
