Reading John concentrates on the literary and theological distinctives of the Fourth Gospel and the Johannine Epistles. New Testament scholar Charles Talbert's unique commentary considers the entire scope of these works attributed to John, their literary settings and particularities, and their continuing theological importance to the Christian story. Thoughtful and engaging, Reading John is an essential book for students and ministers studying the New Testament and the Johannine writings.
An original, very close reading of the final form of the Gospel and Letters of John for their religious content, in light of ancient Greco-Roman, Jewish, and Christian writings, and of present-day pastoral concerns.
