Each of the “for Everyone” series that I have read so far have been a well-written combination of theological and historical background along with modern application, with a few disarming stories thrown in. I enjoy NT (Tom) Wright’s writing style and his perspective. His books aren’t so heavy that they feel like studying. I use them as part of my nightly routine and find them enlightening and helpful.
I recommend this series for anyone looking for scripture, context and application all in one well-written package. I read this one far too slowly!!
