A Lent lectionary resource using Tom Wright's For Everyone Bible translation, this is the third in a three-volume series to cover the three years of the Revised Common Lectionary. For each day of Lent, there is a reading chosen from the Gospel designated for the year, plus a reflection by Tom Wright. The book has grown out of a project to encourage Lent reading in the diocese of Durham, and Matthew Year A (the second volume) was a major feature of The Big Read 2011.
Tom Wright resigned last year as Bishop of Durham to take up a new appointment as Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews. He is a regular broadcaster on radio and television. Tom Wright is the author of over forty books, including the other For Everyone guides to the New Testament, the best-selling Simply Christian, Surprised by Hope and Virtue Reborn; and the magisterial series entitled Christian Origins and the Question of God.
