Matthew for Everyone, Part 1: Chapters 1-15

N. T. Wright, Tom Wright. Westminster John Knox Press, $14.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-664-22786-9

Readers who have been frustrated by the lack of accessible biblical commentaries for laypersons will welcome the addition of Tom Wright's For Everyone series. Wright-the British New Testament scholar who also publishes as ""N.T."" Wright-writes well and with an easy style. The short commentaries tackle New Testament books without being weighed down by internecine debates, heavy-handed arguments about translations or a jumble of Greek vocabulary. In March, Westminster John Knox will release the first eight books (some of which are in two volumes), on each of the four gospels and some of Paul's letters. Future volumes will take up Acts, other letters and that ever-controversial bugbear, Revelation.
