Show synopsis The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own or alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. Thoughtful questions, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information all guide you into a deeper understanding of the Christian story and the Christian life. In his letters, John expresses delight at believers who are 'walking in the truth': those who behave with an integrity that reflects the gospel. For him, such people show their love for God by obeying him. Obedience involves not just understanding correct doctrine and proper outward behaviour, but also loving fellow believers. This love for God and humanity, John writes, shows that the truth of the gospel has really been grasped not only as an abstract idea, but as the very life of God himself at work in his people. These nine studies help us to become believers who 'walk in the truth' - people from whom the very life of God radiates for all to see.
