From the Publisher
"A rare event: a commentary that is learned without being stuffy, accessible without being reductionist. Tom Wright joins us in our homes and workplaces, our sanctuaries and classrooms, in genial, prayerful conversation over this text that forms our lives, the New Testament scriptures." Eugene Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, and author of The Message

The inside pages are thick enough paper that you can highlight and write on them without it having much (if any) impact on the opposite side of the page. The cover is attractive and a glossy material.
This book will make a great addition to your scripture studies.
Yes, free scripture studies can be found online- but there is something about sitting down and having a paper book in front of you to cross reference, highlight and make margin notes in. It is also a trusted source and cross references other areas of the bible where needed.
Wright is one of the world's best New Testament scholars. He's a theologian and academic who can also write at the common level. These commentaries are some of the best around and get into the big picture of what the New Testament is really saying -- not the fanciful imagination that's found in other commentaries. Wright goes out of his way to produce a better (though, at times, choppy) translation of the text than what's found in some Bibles (it's even been collected and edited into "The Kingdom New Testament")! He then breaks down the passage with story and explanation revealing how the historical context is key to understanding and applying the text.
It truly is one of the greatest treasures of our generation. I highly recommend you get yourself a set (I get mine on ebook format).
in which the gospel was written. Consequently the truth revealed is fresh and original.
It is very understandable for anybody - with or without a theological background.
