This was a good book for the class I was taking, and I would definitely recommend it to other profs who don't use it to use it for their classes that talk about the book of Acts!

HASH(0xa958b864) out of 5 stars The Acts of Jesus II May 25 2010
By D. S. Bornus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For those unfamiliar with Wright's "______ for Everyone" series, they are a series of commentaries on the New Testament books by Bishop Wright based on his extensive historical scholarship. He provides his own translation (based on his study of the source languages) which is a very engaging paraphrase. The text is divided up into chronological topic-based segments, followed by a 2-3 page sermonette/commentary based on that section.

This volume covers chapters 1-12 of the Book of Acts. Wright says that this book is Luke's "Acts of Jesus II" - to correspond to the "Acts of Jesus I" (the Gospel of Luke). Acts is "a play in which we are invited to become actors ourselves." (p. 3)

Of Wright's commentaries, this edition is unique in that many sections are illustrated with maps to show the areas mentioned and the direction of travel. This helps to give the reader an overview of the formation of the church, starting in Jerusalem at Pentecost, as the believers sell their possessions and practice communal living, and expand to Caesarea and Ethiopia. There is a magnificent exposition of Paul's Damascus Road experience in Acts 9, as well as "Dorcas Christians" who humbly serve others in the name of Christ.

Wright's translation of Acts gives a fresh rendering which reads like a novel. You will want to have Volume 2 on hand when you finish this one.

HASH(0xa958bc6c) out of 5 stars Excellent Bible Study Material Jan. 31 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our Bible study at church selected this. I knew Wright was a bible scholar, as well as an Anglican Bishop, just a little to the right of center theologically (as I consider Marcus Borg a bit to the left of center). What I didn't realize is the humor with which he writes at times, making this book of the Bible so applicable to the church and to Christians today. The Bible study class has enjoyed it so much that we unanimously decided to continue with Part 2. Though it seems to be divided into chunks that are easily read and perused in a day, our study only manages to get through about 3 of them per week, as they provide so much food for thought and conversation. We don't always agree with Wright, and sometimes check his translation with one of the standard translations of the Bible (they always coincide, of course) - but we never run out of conversation about this book!

HASH(0xa958ba74) out of 5 stars from Westminster John Knox Feb. 21 2008
By S. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Insightful and thought-provoking comments on Acts 1-12 parallel the author's own readable translation of the Bible text. Background information about the scriptures, helpful explanations about its meanings, and discussion of how it can be relevant to lives today are woven together seamlessly in the author's inviting style. This book includes a glossary.

HASH(0xa958e090) out of 5 stars Wright does it again Feb. 13 2014
By Marcia P Aldridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
NT Wright, one of the theological giants of our time, has produced yet again a concise view of the Apostles' world in a historical context. At the same time, each point has a contemporary example of how the theology has played out in Wright's experiences. This is the fifth series we have used in Sunday School.

HASH(0xa958e0b4) out of 5 stars Excellent companion to N.T. Wright's Acts Study Guide June 20 2013
By Kirsten Gregorio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We are using the Study Guide in a small group Bible Study. Acts for Everyone is just that, an extremely readable and yet theologically profound look at uwhat happens after Jesus' ascension and how the Holy Spirit equips the apostles--and us--to bring the promise of the gospel to EVERYONE. This book, and it's companion, Acts for Everyone, Part 2, can be read on its own (the text of Acts is at the beginning of each chapter) or as a companion to the Study Guide.
