The Gospel of John is a unique record of Jesus' deeds and sayings, supplying detailed narratives that differ from those found in the three Synoptic gospels. Professor Andreas Kostenberger ably guides readers through the main themes and theological emphases of this enigmatic gospel. 288 pages, from Baker.
Surveys the content and theology of the Fourth Gospel. Includes photos, maps, line drawings, and and instructor's manual.
"Arguably the Gospel of John is the most widely read gospel and at the same time the gospel which is the most difficult to understand. Students who look for a comprehensive introduction into the Fourth Gospel need to look no further. A. Kstenberger has written the best college level introduction available. The book is packed with the most recent scholarship yet is not pedantic in its presentation of secondary sources. It regulary discusses differing views on numerous topics yet never loses its focus. It consistently introduces the reader into scholarly debates not for their own sake but for enhancing the understanding of the text of the Gospel. It demonstrates an admirable balance between historical, literary, and theological matters. And it seeks to help the reader to engage with the Gospel and with the Incarnate Word whom it portrays, on a personal level. I highly recommend the book."-- Eckhard, Schnabel, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois"The book combines expert scholarship with skillful and attractive methods of communication. It is exactly what students of the Fourth Gospel need both to provide them with the scholarly information and to guide and stimulate their own exploration of the Gospel and the many issues it raises. A splendid contribution to this new series."-- Richard Bauckham, St. Andrews University
