The Bible for Everyone

The Bible for Everyone

Author: Tom Wright, John Goldingay Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/07/2018

Why another translation of the Bible? As Tom Wright observes: `Translating [the bible] is something that each generation ought to be doing. Just as Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, we can never simply live on yesterday's bread, on the interpretations and translations of previous generations.' The Bible for Everyone is the result of a passionate conviction that scripture should be something that everyone can read, understand and enjoy. Two world-renowned Bible scholars and communicators have therefore undertaken a tremendous task: to draw together, revise and supplement the translations that appear in their popular `For Everyone' commentaries, making a rounded, readable and reliable version of the Bible that will prove helpful to people of all religious backgrounds at every stage of their lives. Broken up into easy-to-read, bite-sized chunks, and including helpful introductions to each biblical book plus informative maps and a substantial glossary of key words, here is a compelling new rendering of ancient wisdom that can be read like a novel, studied in sections or used as an aid to daily devotion.

Paul A Biography

Paul A Biography

Author: Tom Wright Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/02/2018

This compelling reconstruction of the life and thought of St Paul paints a vivid picture of the Roman world in which he preached his revolutionary message and explains the significance of his lasting impact on both the Church and the world. Regarded by many as the founder of Christianity, Paul of Tarsus is one of the most controversial and powerful figures in history. His writings have had an incalculable influence on Western culture and beyond, and his words continue to guide the lives of over two billion Christians across the world today. In this superbly detailed biography Tom Wright traces Paul's career from zealous persecutor of the fledgling Church, through his journeys as the world's greatest missionary theologian, to his likely death as a Christian martyr at the hands of Nero in the mid 60s CE. Drawing judiciously on the latest research into the Jewish, Greek and Roman worlds, and enriched by a wealth of critical insight into Paul's own writings, this is the most rounded portrait of the apostle ever painted - his development, motivations, spiritual struggles and intellectual achievements, and his lasting impact over two millennia.

The Day the Revolution Began Rethinking The Meaning of Jesus' Crucifixion

The Day the Revolution Began Rethinking The Meaning of Jesus' Crucifixion

Author: Tom Wright Format: Paperback Release Date: 21/09/2017

In The Day the Revolution Began Tom Wright invites you to consider the full meaning of the event at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus' crucifixion. As he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope, Wright once again challenges commonly held beliefs, this time arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in reshaping our understanding of the Cross. With his characteristic rigour and incisiveness, he goes back to the New Testament to show that Jesus' death not only releases us from the guilt and power of sin, but is nothing less than the beginning of a world-wide revolution that continues to this day - a revolution that creates and energizes a movement responsible for restoring and reconciling the whole of God's creation. The Day the Revolution Began will take you to a new level in your appreciation of the meaning of Jesus' sacrifice: opening up its powerful and amazing implications, inspiring you with a renewed sense of purpose and hope, and reminding you of the crucial role you can play in the world-transforming movement that Jesus started.

Spiritual and Religious The Gospel in an Age of Paganism

Spiritual and Religious The Gospel in an Age of Paganism

Author: Tom Wright Format: Paperback Release Date: 18/05/2017

'I'm spiritual, but not religious.' It's a phrase that's often used to explain why, although they don't go to church, people still feel that life must have some kind of transcendent meaning, But what does this 'spirituality' consist of? In Spiritual and Religious Tom Wright argues that, whether people realize it or not, they are often simply reverting to forms of ancient paganism that are very similar to those that confronted the earliest Christians. With his characteristic verve and incisiveness, Wright traces the parallels between the worldviews of the first and twenty-first centuries, and shows how a better understanding of God as Trinity can breathe fresh life into our understanding and preaching of the gospel today. He concludes this prophetic book with a call to contemporary Christians to make a clear choice: 'Are we to compromise with paganism, to assimilate, to water down the distinctives of Christian faith in order to make it more palatable? Are we to retreat into dualism, into a private 'spiritual' religion which will assure us of an other-worldly salvation but which will leave the powers of the present world unchallenged...?Or are we to worship the God who is Father, Son and Spirit, and to find in that worship a renewed courage, a renewed sense of direction, and a renewed hope for the future?

Author: Tom Wright Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/10/2016

'How can the death of one man two thousand years ago have any relevance for me today? Why did Jesus have to die? The greater the claim, the sharper the question...Why should this one be different? What possible sense can we make of the idea of someone dying for someone else, let alone dying 'for their sins'? How on earth can the violent death of an apparently innocent man be understood as a victory over 'the rulers and authorities'? And - perhaps the greatest and most challenging question of all - in what sense can this terrible event we seen, as the earliest Christians insisted it ought to be, as the ultimate revelation of divine love?'In The Day the Revolution Began Tom Wright invites you to consider the full meaning of the event at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus' crucifixion.As he did in his acclaimed Surprised by Hope, Wright once again challenges commonly held beliefs, this time arguing that the Protestant Reformation did not go far enough in reshaping our understanding of the Cross.With his characteristic rigour and incisiveness, he goes back to the New Testament to show that Jesus' death not only releases us from the guilt and power of sin, but is nothing less than the beginning of a world-wide revolution that continues to this day - a revolution that creates and energizes a movement responsible for restoring and reconciling the whole of God's creation.

For many Jewish Christians of the first century, living in the light of the gospel was challenging.

Creation, Power and Truth The Gospel in a World of Cultural Confusion

Author: Tom Wright Format: Paperback Release Date: 18/07/2013

Tom Wright raises searching questions about three key aspects of our culture: neo-gnosticism, neo-imperialism, and postmodernity.

New Testament Wisdom for Everyone

New Testament Wisdom for Everyone

Author: Tom Wright Format: Paperback Release Date: 18/04/2013

A distillation of Tom Wright's meditations on the wisdom of Jesus and the apostles, drawn from his popular New Testament for Everyone series. A helpful devotional resource, both for those who already own the 'For Everyones' and for those who may not yet have read them. Includes questions for personal reflection or group discussion. To follow Jesus we have to learn to think inside out, in looking-glass fashion: what the world counts as great is foolishness, and what the world counts as folly is the true wisdom. Cling on to your life and you'll lose it; give everything you've got to following Jesus, including life itself, and you'll win it. In every generation there are, it seems, a few people who are prepared to take Jesus seriously, at his word. What would it be like if you were one of them?

The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own or alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. Thoughtful questions, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information all guide you into a deeper understanding of the Christian story and the Christian life.

For him, such people show their love for God by obeying him. Obedience involves not just understanding correct doctrine and proper outward behaviour, but also loving fellow believers. This love for God and humanity, John writes, shows that the truth of the gospel has really been grasped not only as an abstract idea, but as the very life of God himself at work in his people. These nine studies help us to become believers who 'walk in the truth' - people from whom the very life of God radiates for all to see.

The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own or alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. Every generation in the church worries, rightly, about people who just glide along, who appear to enjoy what they hear, and yet who don't seem to make any real difference. James faced a similar situation during the very first days of the church. So it's not surprising that translating belief into action - making sure that faith is the real thing - is near the heart of his message. That kind of faith, he explains, is the faith that matters, the faith that justifies, the faith that saves. We need that kind of faith today. These nine studies on James's passionate letter help us to live out a faith that makes a difference.

Simply Jesus Who He Was, What He Did, Why it Matters

Author: Tom Wright Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/11/2011

Who was - and is - Jesus of Nazareth? This is a simple question that every Christian must ask. A multitude of different voices and centuries of church tradition have made it difficult for us to see Jesus the way his own contemporaries saw him, and to understand him in the way that he wanted to be understood. This book places Jesus firmly within his own context, and shows how startlingly relevant he is to our own day as well. In this book, renowned New Testament scholar Tom Wright sets out to answer three simple but vital questions about Jesus: who was he, what did he do and why does it matter? The Jesus we might discover if we really looked is larger, more radical and more urgent than we ever imagined. And when we recognize Jesus, our next challenge is to follow him in his project of bringing God's wise, healing rule to bear on his world.

Author: Tom Wright Format: Paperback Release Date: 21/11/1997

'You can't love an abstraction. You can't even love the idea of love. You can only truly love a person. The deepest, richest meaning of love must be personal love.

This book of Bible readings and reflections, for every day from Ash Wednesday to the first Sunday of Easter, explores how we reveal Jesus even at the lowest and weakest points of our lives. Drawing on New Testament passages, with a particular focus on Paul's letters to the church in Corinth, Tom Wright shows that through God's Holy Spirit, the suffering but also the glory of Christ can be incarnate in our lives, enabling us to be the people of God for the world.
