'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.

Review quote

While new translations of the Bible are constantly appearing, with the vast majority only offering slight variations, Goldingay's translation here offers a fresh alternative, providing a rare glimpse into the language, culture, and worldview of ancient Israel. . . Everyone will love this. * David T. Lamb, Professor of Old Testament, Biblical Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania * John Goldingay's translation is a magisterial work of theology, pastoral insight, and linguistic scholarship. . . It has immediately become one of the standard translations that I always consult when trying to understand any Old Testament text myself. * Gordon McConville, Professor of Old Testament Theology, University of Gloucestershire * We hear the familiar flow of passages we know well, but with unexpected and arresting words that make us sometimes pause and think again. This is a book to browse in, alongside your customary Bible version, for fresh insights, challenge and enjoyment. * Christopher J. H. Wright, International Ministries Director, Langham Partnership * This is a remarkable achievement. . . Tom Wright has a very attractive feel for English; and the mere fact of producing a fresh translation that is both scholarly and written in non-repellent language makes this work a major triumph.' * Expository Times * Fresh, insightful and accessible. . . this translation directs the reader to new lines of thought and reflection, especially helpful with some of the best known and perhaps over-familiar passages. . . An excellent resource. * The Reader * I love the easy flow of the narrative, and the way it is broken down into bite-sized chunks. . . This truly is a book for Everyone. * The Good Book Stall *
