Writing in an anecdotal and approachable style, Tom Wright helps us to see the great sweep of the letter to the Romans. This volume in the hugely popular For Everyone series is ideal for daily Bible study, a preaching aid or for those readers who are looking to deepen their understanding of this classic NT book. It is now reissued with a new cover, to match the new look for this bestselling series.
Tom Wright has a rare gift for communicating his understanding and enthusiasm to non-specialists. He is one of the few people alive today capable of undertaking a project such as the For Everyone guides. When complete, this series will include a new translation of the entire New Testament by Tom Wright. Section by section, the translation is accompanied by his eye-opening comments on each passage.
ABOUT THE SERIES: …for EVERYONE. A major new series of guides to the books of the New Testament. Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to furnish them with his own fresh translation of the entire text.
Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful interpretation and explanation, and thoughts as to how it can be relevant to our lives today. No knowledge of technical jargon is required. The series is suitable for personal or group use. The format makes it appropriate also for daily study.
