I have been really pleased with N.T. Wright’s brief works on different books of the New Testament called the “For Everyone” series. I am going to make it a habit of putting one of these in the hands of each of the teachers when they are covering a New Testament book. He is concise, throws in just enough background to help you get the point and even makes some really good application. I have been really happy with this series of books by N.T. Wright.
