Focusing on the Holy Week texts from Matthew and John, these nine sermons from New Testament theologian Wright offer a compelling look at the events of Jesus' last week on Earth---from Palm Sunday's surge in popular acclaim to Easter's ultimate triumph over death---and their repercussions for all human history. 96 pages, softcover from Westminster John Knox.
This collection of nine meditations from renowned biblical scholar and Anglican Bishop Tom Wright carries Holy Week from its solemn beginnings to the dramatic conclusion on Good Friday and Easter. "I hope that these addresses," Wright says in his preface, ". . . will contribute both to the enriched understanding, and also to the empowered living out, of the vital and inexhaustible events at the heart of Christian faith." The writings for Palm Sunday through Maundy Thursday morning, as well as the Easter Vigil, focus on texts from the Gospel of Matthew; Maundy Thursday evening, Good Friday, and Easter morning focus on texts from the Gospel of John.
N. T. Wright is the Bishop of Durham in the Church of England. He is a prolific author and noted New Testament scholar, and was named by Christianity Today in 1999 as one of the world's top five theologians. He has written over thirty books, both at the scholarly level and for a popular audience.
