A Contemporary Translation. Most readers of the New Testament have grown overly familiar with the biblical text, losing sight of the wonder and breadth of its innovative ideas and world-changing teachings about the life and role of Jesus of Nazareth. Wright now offers an all-new English translation that allows us to encounter afresh these historic works. The original Greek text is vibrant, alive, and active, and Wright's translation retains that spirit by providing a new English text for the twenty-first-century reader. At the same time, based on his work as a pioneering interpreter of the Bible, Wright ("the world"™s leading New Testament scholar" acc. to Newsweek) also corrects other translations so as to provide more accurate representations of the original writers' intent. New translation includes: - Consistent use of gender-neutral language - A more "popular-level" language matching character of original Greek - The vibrancy and urgency of the original works.
