Making use of his vast knowledge of the New Testament and it cultural background as well as his remarkable ability to write simply and clearly, N.T. Wright captures the verse and sparkle of these letters. Paul composed these letters while in prison facing possible death, but their passion and energy are undimmed. They reveal Paul's longing to see young churches grow in faith and understanding rooted in Jesus himself, and to see this faith worked out in practice. Wright's stimulating comments are combined with his own fresh and inviting translation of the text.
About the Series: N.T. Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all books of the New Testament and to include in them his own Bible translation. The result is a superb series for those desiring deep engagement with the Bible and its enduring message for Christian life today. Slightly Imperfect.
