An excellent Lenten devotional that provides a thoughtful and reflective, theologically profound journey through the Gospel of Mark (with reflections from other Gospels and Psalms on the weekends). The theology explained by NT Wright is easy to understand while deep and explanatory at the same time. I would highly recommend this for a Lenten resource anytime Year B comes around in the Lectionary!

Another excellent volume in the Wright for Everyone series. I appreciated this one for the way it helped Amy and I go through Lent in the proper mindset. Wright works through the Gospel of Mark (since it is year B in the church calendar this year, at least according to the Revised Common Lectionary, which is gaining more usage recently), and he does not repeat the same devotional material as from his NT Wright Mark for Everyone volume, so that kept it fresh. Wright always has a good word and ...more

As the advert says 'it does what it says on the tin'. Whether you are an ignoramus and a novice like me or a theologian there is something here for you. A really good way to be guided through Lent. Interesting, thought provoking and informative. Hurry on Year C.

I haven't finished this as yet, but I wanted to share it before Lent is over. I have been using Lent for Everyone for my Lenten meditation. I'm setting my alarm earlier and getting up to have quiet worship. This book is truly wonderful. Each day begins with a Bible reading which is included in the book. No need to have a pile of books for your meditation. The reading is followed by a great homily to lend meaning to the passage. The day's reading ends with a prayer for the day. I find this really ...more

N.T. Wright brings his usual eloquence to bear on the familiar Gospel narrative, enriching our understanding with a tender intelligence, accessible across denominations and sects with his emphasis on the fundamentals of Christian thought and practice through the ages.

Developed to be read as a daily devotional from Ash Wednesday up through Holy Week, Wright's words are relevant regardless of the season. The call to set aside time for thoughtful meditation on the Gospel message - and the Passion

I've now read Luke, Matthew and Mark - and I think Mark might be my favorite. Wright packs so much into these daily devotions - humor, insight, education, - it's hard sometimes to let the book unfold one day at a time over the course of weeks. But I find that is the best way to read day at a time. I cannot recommend this series highly enough for anyone looking for a Lectionary-based Lenten devotion.

One week in, these meditations are superb. Just the right length: meaty, but short enough to keep my six year old's attention. This coupled with Horne's "The Victory According to Mark", and you're set for Year B lent devotions.

Tom Wright doing what Tom Wright does: making Scripture accessible through a combination of his own translation and his own commentary. An accessible Lent devotional that does what it says on the tin.
