This collection of nine meditations from renowned biblical scholar and Anglican Bishop Tom (N.T.) Wright carry the week from its solemn beginnings to the dramatic conclusion on Good Friday and Easter. ?I hope that these addresses, ? Wright says in his preface, ?will contribute both to the enriched understanding, and also to the empowered living out, of the vital and inexhaustible events at the heart of Christian faith.? The writings for Palm Sunday through Maundy Thursday morning, as well as the Easter Vigil, all focus on texts from the Gospel of Matthew; Maundy Thursday evening, Good Friday, and Easter morning focus on texts from the Gospel of John. The translations of the text are Wright's own, taken from his volumes Matthew for Everyone and John for Everyone in the ?for Everyone series published by Westminster John Knox Press.
