The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world’s leading New Testament scholars. Thoughtful question, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information all guide you into a deeper understanding of the Christian story and the Christian life.
Ephesians – When you have a story at the back of your mind, have you noticed how it sometimes keeps coming up, even if you’re talking about something else? Throughout his exhortation, prayers and instructions for living in the letter to the Ephesians, Paul can’t contain his joy and amazement at God’s plan to save us in Jesus the Messiah. These eleven studies from Tom Wright help us to see the significance of our role in God’s grand narrative, and encourage us to live fully as people who are lavishly loved by God.
This “For Everyone” Series by Tom Wright is accompanied by his “For Everyone” Commentaries. The questions and content for each session is taken exactly from his commentary. There is a lot of exposition provided, as well as their corresponding implications. However, many of these concepts have to be taken “as is”. Tom Wright is a well-known biblical scholar and hence I do not doubt his exegesis and hermeneutics. However, as this series is meant to be accessible to a general audience, a lot of philosophical details are omitted.
