Luke for Everyone (with Mark for Everyone) starts this exciting new series. Tom Wright's translation brings to life the immediacy and drama of Luke's gospel. His comments on each section, which include a wealth of information and background detail, provide real insights for our understanding of the story of Jesus and its implications for the reader. His clear style is accessible to new readers of the Bible, as well as to those who are already further on.
Tom Wright combines his scholarship with an ability to communicate warmly with non-specialist readers. A former teacher of New Testament studies at the universities of Oxford, Cambridge and McGill, he is among the most interesting and respected New Testament scholars currently at work. He is the author of many books, including The Lord and His Prayer, Who Was Jesus?, The Challenge of Jesus and Twelve Months of Sundays: Reflections on Bible readings. Formerly Dean of Lichfield, he is currently Canon Theologian at Westminster Abbey and SPCK Research Fellow.
