Read these chapters with great care. Not only will they offer you a comprehensive map of Johannine interpretation across the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. You also will delight in reading one of North America’s foremost Johannine exegetes as he grapples with that Gospel’s most critical issues, fortified by a lifetime of patient and disciplined study, a refreshing generosity of critical spirit, and the heart of a churchman.~C.
