Wright and Michael Bird, hope to take you on a tour of the New Testament Story, from Galilee to Golgotha, from Jerusalem to Rome. They will look at who Jesus is, the real meaning of his death and resurrection, the expansion of the church in the Greco-Roman world, examine the debates and setbacks that they had along the way, and show how Christians can live out the story of New Testament in their own lives today.

Now as never before, studying God's Word can become a fresh, inviting, enriching experience for every reader.
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.
