Review quote

This book marks an important development in the interpretation of the Fourth Gospel, for it appears to be the first full-scale commentary on John in English to adopt a sustained literary approach ... The result is a brilliant and perceptive account of John's material, full of rich insights for the enquiring reader, and must be warmly welcomed. * Journal of Theological Studies *show more
