"There is much in this book to appeal to more traditional scholars of the fourth gospel."--Expository Times "Much insight is packed into these pages."--Cross Currents "Ashton clearly is one of the more readable of modern biblical scholars. His analogies from literature (classical and modern), music, history, philosophy, as well as his own ability to turn a clever phrase, enable Ashton to merge refreshing style with careful analysis. The result is a book that...is literate, insightful, and critical."--The Journal of Religion

Is historical criticism of the New Testament dead? In this telling collection of eight new studies on John's Gospel, John Ashton argues that this is very far from the case. Challenging the assumptions of methodologies which ignore the historical context in which the Gospel was composed, the author offers a spirited defence of historical criticism and provides practical demonstration of the many new insights which it has still to yield. The first two chapters treat in greater depth two key themes (the Prologue of John and the Jews) which appeared in the author's Understanding the Fourth Gospel (Clarendon Paperbacks, 1993). A third chapter is intended to supplement and correct this larger work. The rest of the book explores further facets of the Gospel, and at the same time exposes some of the serious theoretical weaknesses in much recent writing on the Gospel.
