I have and will continue to purchase this authors books.
Along the way, the author disambiguates the Gospel's English translation to help us understand what's really happening. So much of our scriptural reading is filtered through the prism of our twenty-first century experience and we overlook or misunderstand metaphors that don't even remotely apply to modern life. We've also internalized so much myth that we cannot distinguish it from reality and this myth often alters scriptural understanding. For example, I was quite surprised to find that Jesus wasn't really born in a stable or barn. Rather, he was born in a private home with a manger in it as animals were commonly kept in the home. This popular image of Christ's birth is very much a myth.
I'd highly recommend Wright's book for anyone wishing for a spiritual reflection guide on the Gospels or who wish a better understanding of what the stories really mean.
Its a good read and you will be a better person for having read it.
