The Gospel of John

Paul Louis Metzger

The Gospel of John

Paul Louis Metzger

$24.99

Paperback
The Resonate series recovers the ancient wisdom of Scripture and helps us understand how it resonates with our complex world.

Future volumes include: The Gospel of Matthew- Matt Woodley; Ecclesiastes- Tim Keel; and The Acts of the Apostles -Dan Kimball

The stories and insights of each book of the Bible are brought into conversation with contemporary voices of hope and lament--the cultural messages we interact with on a daily basis. The Scriptures become a meeting ground where God speaks to the pressing concerns of our day, and we are confronted in turn with a fresh experience of God's truth.

^^In this journey through the Gospel of John, Paul Louis Metzger wrestles with the question of what happens when God, who is love, comes to town and takes up residence among us. For some this new neighbor love is welcome; for others, unusual; for still others, suspect--even dangerous.

^^We learn from John's Gospel what it means to be called friends and lovers of God, what it means to put love to death and what it means for love to rise again in our midst and in our lives.^
