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.
