The New Testament for the Twenty-First Century.
If you think you might have grown overly familiar with the biblical text and lost sight of the wonder and breadth of its innovative ideas and world-changing teachings about Jesus of Nazareth, this New Testament is for you. N. T. Wright invigorates these sacred texts with this 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.
