Description

Esteemed biblical scholar N. T. Wright examines four of Paul’s prison letters: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon – poignant letters revealing the apostle’s unwavering faith and hope despite severe trials.
This book compiles four of Paul’s brief prison letters: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon. These letters offer a poignant portrait of a man facing severe trials yet unwavering in faith and hope. Paul’s wisdom for these young churches, particularly his guidance to Philemon in a complex moral dilemma, is truly impressive. Within thirty years of Jesus’ death and resurrection, Paul articulates a vivid, multifaceted understanding of Jesus’ accomplishment, God’s global design and its impact on ordinary lives.
The biblical text is thoughtfully divided into easily manageable sections, ensuring accessibility for readers of all backgrounds. As you engage with this ancient narrative, you’ll discover its timeless resonance with the spiritual quests of today’s readers, whether they are newcomers or seasoned followers of Jesus.
This expanded edition includes Wright’s updated translation of the biblical text, supplemented by a new introduction and a dynamic study guide tailored for both group study sessions and individual contemplation. The inclusion of helpful summaries and thought-provoking questions makes Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon for Everyone an ideal companion for those seeking to explore the New Testament with fresh enthusiasm and profound insights.

Reviews

"N.T. Wright is a uniquely gifted communicator. His commentaries in the New Testament for Everyone series make clear the complex and make exciting the deep theological truths. Pastors, students, scholars, and laity have benefitted from these little books. I am delighted that they will remain in print and available for future generations!" - Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Christian University

"Wright’s For Everyone series is a gift that feels like lucking into some time on your front porch, sitting at a bar, or walking in the park with an old friend who happens to know all there is to know about the Bible, and who understands plain folks who are curious, and eager, for anecdotes, observations, stories, and fresh insights — and how complex scholarship matters in real life." - James Howell, Senior Pastor, Myers Park United Methodist Church

"For two decades, N. T. Wright’s New Testament for Everyone commentary series has made accessible and spiritually insightful biblical scholarship available to a broad Christian audience and has taken the reader deep into the books of the New Testament. This anniversary edition serves to acknowledge that these commentaries, much like William Barclay’s Daily Study Bible, have stood the test of time. While preachers will have riches to mine, more importantly, so will everyone who seeks a better understanding of the New Testament. The study guide included with these commentaries makes them even more usable for congregational Bible study groups." - Robert D. Cornwall, Minister-at-Large, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
