Product Description

The New Testament for the Twenty-First Century.
Most readers of the New Testament have grown overly familiar with the biblical text, losing sight of the wonder and breadth of its innovative ideas and world-changing teachings about the life and role of Jesus of Nazareth. N. T. Wright invigorates these sacred texts with an all-new English translation that allows contemporary readers to encounter these historic works afresh.
With the insight and expertise of "the world’s leading New Testament scholar" (Newsweek), this approachable, engaging translation features accessible, modern prose that stays true to the character of the ancient Greek text by maintaining the vibrancy and vigor of the original works while also conveying the most accurate rendering possible.
The Kingdom New Testament will help the next generation of Christians acquire a firsthand understanding of what the New Testament had to say in its own world, and what it urgently has to say in ours.
9.25" x 6.50" x 1.25"

Author Bio

N. T. Wright is the former bishop of Durham in the Church of England and one of the world's leading Bible scholars. He is now severing as the Chair of New Testament and Early Christianity at the School of Divinity at the University of St. Andrews; he has been featured on ABC News, Dateline, The Colbert Report, and Fresh Air.

Editorial Reviews

“Wright’s Kingdom New Testament is both faithful and fresh, both lucid and enlightening, both careful and creative. Bringing to bear his wealth of scholarship and a lifetime of study, it will serve us well for many years to come. Enthusiastically recommended.”
“Wright, the world’s most influential New Testament interpreter, gives us in The Kingdom New Testament, a readable and dynamic translation marked by precision, personality, and power. The Kingdom New Testament will be unsurpassed-- this is the one translation I’d want everyone to read.”
“[The] Kingdom New Testament: a comforting voice for struggling newcomers, a fresh voice for translation-tired veterans. I know of no one more qualified to take the message of the New Testament and put it into words that the modern person can fully understand.”
Translations often are either too ‘popular’ or too ‘formal.’ This fresh translation of the New Testament strikes a fine balance between the two as it ably rescues truth from familiarity. I recommend it highly to all who love the New Testament.
“[The Kingdom New Testament] will confirm Professor Wright’s position as the J.K.Rowling of Christian Publishing.”
“I hope everyone gets a copy. . . . Translation is brisk and energetic, gender neutral, and has some real surprises. . . . There is something quite distinct about [Wright’s] translation: he wants the reader to feel the 1st Century, to hear a Jew call Jesus ‘Messiah’’or ‘King.’”
“The Kingdom New Testament sparkles with many gems of spirited English.”
“Reading Wright’s volume feels like sitting in on a Greek Bible class with a great teacher.”
“Wright’s readable text serves as a refreshing, helpful way to re-hear familiar narratives.”

    When I discovered that this New Testament translation was published earlier this summer in the UK as 'the New Testament for Everyone', I ordered it immediately. I have had this "advanced" copy for about a month now have been reading it devotionally. I have also flipped through it to compare against other common translations for sermon preparation and general interest or study. Furthermore, I have shared it with friends and family to peruse at leisure.

    The consensus has been positive. I have thoroughly enjoyed the freshness of the reading in devotions without it being such a great departure as to be a distraction (I find Peterson's Msg to be so). Compared to established renderings such as the NIV, NLT, NASB, NRSV, etc. I would say it is like combining the intent of the Msg while remaining faithful to the Greek as with the NRSV. This should not be surprising since Wright's decision to produce his own translation came from not wanting to use the NIV and NRSV and commenting on differences or what he would have done for his commentary series.

    I have likewise found Wright's translation helpful when comparing various translations for differences. I'm sure some will object in various places as with any translation, but this is precisely why I recommend it. Differences force us to look at the text anew and seek to understand more accurately, deeply, and strongly than before.

    I highly recommend this translation produced over the last decade as part of Tom Wright's recently completed "For Everyone" New Testament Commentary series here combined into one seamless whole.
