The New Testament for the Twenty-First Century
Many 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. In The Kingdom New Testament, N. T. Wright, author and one of the worlds leading New Testament scholars, offers an all-new English translation that invigorates these sacred texts and allows contemporary readers to encounter these historic works afresh. The original Greek text is vibrant, alive, and active, and Wrights translation retains that spirit by providing a new English text for the twenty-first-century reader. At the same time, based on his work as a pioneering interpreter of the Bible, Wright also corrects other translations so as to provide more accurate representations of the original writers intent.
The Kingdom New Testament features consistent use of gender-neutral language and a more "popular-level" language matching character of the original Greek, while maintaining the vibrancy and urgency of the original work. It 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.

N. T. Wright is the Chair of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

“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.”
