This book introduces the reader to the Gospel of John in a unique way. Robert Kysar focuses on the religious thought of the Fourth Gospel, providing a survey of the major theological themes. He argues that the religious thought of the Fourth Gospel is different than other New Testament literature, and presents it in the context of universal religious questions so that is may be viewed as a fundamental human expression of the religious quest. This excellent book, written in a lively style, is distinguished from other introductions to the Fourth Gospel by the way in which it invites the reader to be involved in the reading of the Gospel itself.
John, the Maverick Gospel has long been regarded as one of the most trustworthy introductions to the Fourth Gospel, paying special attention to the literary and theological dimensions of this Gospel without neglecting historical and other scholarly approaches. Robert Kysar, an international expert on John's Gospel, has now fully revised this useful classroom tool to bring the scholarly discussions up to date and to add sections on women in the Gospel of John as well as postmodern approaches to the Gospel. This classic text provides an accessible entry into the important critical issues of John's Gospel, both on its own terms and in comparison to the Synoptic Gospels, offering a sure foundation for scholarly study of the book as well as theological interpretation and preaching.
Kysar is Bandy Professor of Preaching and New Testament Emeritus at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, and an ordained ELCA pastor.
