'It's a big book, full of big stories with big characters. They have big ideas (not least about themselves) and make big mistakes. It's about God, and greed, and grace; about life, lust, laughter and loneliness. It's about birth, beginnings and betrayal; about siblings, squabbles and sex; about power and prayer and prison and passion ...And that's only Genesis.' Tom Wright unpacks the contents of the Bible and explains the meaning of its inspiration, impact and authority. A book for all who are curious about how God's voice can be heard today. Intended for people looking for answers to life's biggest questions, this little book of guidance will appeal to anyone, whether believer or non-believer, looking for a quick and easy way into the topic.
Tom Wright is Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of over seventy books, including the 'For Everyone' guides to the New Testament and, most recently, Creation, Power and Truth, Finding God in the Psalms, The Meal Jesus Gave Us, Surprised by Scripture and Paul and the Faithfulness of God (all SPCK).
