Tom Wright's guide to Luke, which includes a wealth of information and background detail, provides real insights for our understanding of the story of Jesus and its implications for the reader. His clear style is accessible for new readers of the Bible, as well as to those who are further on. His exciting new translation of the biblical text brings to life, passage by passage, the immediacy and drama of Luke's Gospel.
About the Series:
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.

Pappy5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent source of information through the eyes of LukeMarch 12, 2018PappyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As in other books in this series, N T Wright provides an excellent narrative. This time he comments on information Luke gathered from those who witnessed the words and actions of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as He fulfilled numerous prophesies concerning the Messiah. Within the pages of this book, Luke paints a detailed picture of Christ's journey to the cross as the lamb sacrificed for our sins. A most informative read!
