Full Product Description

‘New Testament Wisdom for Everyone’ is a challenging book presenting Tom Wright’s meditations on key passages in the New Testament.

The message that Jesus preached and lived has inspired and convicted countless lives over 2000 years. Wright’s convincing and connecting voice has helped many engage with these words for themselves and act upon them, aligning themselves within Jesus’ message and the Early Church attitude. In ‘Wisdom for Everyone’, readers will be invited to muse with Wright as he weaves from message to message, connecting this ancient wisdom with the modern mind.

With testing questions for personal reflection or group discussion, anyone who reads this book and takes it seriously will discover that following Jesus is both costly and rewarding.

Publisher's Description

A distillation of Tom Wright's meditations on the wisdom of Jesus and the apostles, drawn from his popular New Testament for Everyone series. A helpful devotional resource, both for those who already own the 'For Everyones' and for those who may not yet have read them. Includes questions for personal reflection or group discussion.

"To follow Jesus we have to learn to think inside out, in looking-glass fashion: what the world counts as great is foolishness, and what the world counts as folly is the true wisdom. Cling on to your life and you'll lose it; give everything you've got to following Jesus, including life itself, and you'll win it. In every generation there are, it seems, a few people who are prepared to take Jesus seriously, at his word. What would it be like if you were one of them?"
