64 Reviews
In this solid evangelical commentary on John's Gospel, a respected Scripture expositor makes clear the flow of the text, engages a small but representative part of the massive secondary literature on John, shows how the Fourth Gospel contributes to biblical and systematic theology, and offers a consistent exposition of John as an evangelistic Gospel. The comprehensive introduction treats such matters as the authenticity, authorship, purpose, and structure of the Gospel.

This is the best commentary on the Gospel of John. I also liked Leon Morris and Kostenberger, but I found this commentary so helpful as I preached through John. Read full review
