An entry-level commentary on Galatians and 1/2 Thessalonians.

Wright's commentary, as in all the "for everyone" series, remains excellent. He provides a understandable (if not quite British) translation of the text in sections, followed by some illustration and commentary for each section. The commentary demonstrates the major theme of each letter and concisely sets forth Paul's primary meaning in context to those to whom he is writing. Application is made when appropriate.

An excellent resource for understanding Galatians and 1/2 Thessalonians. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Tom Wright's eye-opening comments on these letters are combined, passage-by-passage, with his fresh and inviting new translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the tension and excitement of the time as the letters seek to assert Paul's authority and his teaching against other influences. 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.… (more)
