‘The Bible for Everyone’ is the result of a passionate conviction that scripture should be something that everyone can read, understand and enjoy. John Goldingay and Tom Wright, two world-renowned biblical scholars and communicators, have drawn together, revised and supplemented the translations that appear in their popular ‘For Everyone’ commentaries to create a rounded, readable and reliable version of the Bible. ‘The Bible for Everyone’ is a rich, vibrant and insightful translation based upon John Goldingay and Tom Wright’s lifetime study and love of the scriptures.

For anyone who has ever struggled with reading and understanding the Bible, this accessible new Bible translation is an excellent resource. Broken up into easy-to-read, bite-sized chunks, informative maps and a substantial glossary of key words, here is a new rendering of ancient wisdom that can be read like a novel, studied in sections or used as an aid to daily devotion. ‘The Bible for Everyone’ features completely new introductions to each book of the Bible, freshly written by Goldingay and Wright as part of the ‘For Everyone’ series.
