Praise for the First Edition "This book is an admirable contribution to the Encountering series. Although he is a sure-footed specialist on John, Kstenberger nevertheless manages to write with the clarity and condensed simplicity expected of a college-level textbook. Students who study John's gospel with this guide in hand will emerge with a grasp of its content that will provide an anchor not only for the rest of their biblical studies but for the rest of their lives." -- D. A. Carson , Trinity Evangelical Divinity School "The book combines expert scholarship with skillful and attractive methods of communication. It is exactly what students of the Fourth Gospel need both to provide them with the scholarly information and to guide and stimulate their own exploration of the Gospel and the many issues it raises. A splendid contribution." -- Richard Bauckham , University of St. Andrews "Students who look for a comprehensive introduction into the Fourth Gospel need to look no further: Kstenberger has written the best college-level introduction available. The book is packed with information yet easy to read. It competently interacts with the most recent scholarship yet is not pedantic in its presentation of secondary sources. It regularly discusses differing views on numerous topics yet never loses its focus. I highly recommend the book." -- Eckhard Schnabel , Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary "This text is a helpful addition to the field of Biblical, especially Johannine, studies at the college level. I have not yet seen anything comparable to it as a teaching tool." -- Gary Derickson , Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society "Offers an excellent interpretation of John's Gospel, introduces its users to much of the scholarly debate surrounding it, and provides many valuable practical insights that challenge the reader's response to the message the Gospel proclaims. . . . I am anticipating that the next time I teach the Gospel of John . . . I will use Kstenberger's fine book as a required text for leading students into a deeper understanding and appreciation of the fourth Gospel." -- David Beck , Faith and Mission
