Book Description

Feb. 15 2008 Everyone One Series
Writing in an accessable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright helps us to approach the rich and many-sided story of the book of Acts. Wright shows how the book builds on Luke's Gospel, laying out the continuing work and teaching of the now risen and ascended Jesus in the power of the Spirit. His writing captures the vivid way in which Luke's work draws us all into he story, while leaving the ending open and challenging, inviting Christians today to pick up and carry on the story as we in turn live our lives in the service of Jesus.Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars from Westminster John Knox Feb. 21 2008
By S. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Acts of Jesus II May 25 2010
By D. S. Bornus - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 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.
