Back Cover Copy
This expanded second edition has been revised throughout to take account of current scholarship and introduce software tools that have become available since the original edition was published. "This new edition of Gary Burge's introduction to the Gospel of Johnis no mere reprint but a detailed updating of a standard textbook for beginning students that will provide them with information and tools for their study, all placed in the context of preparation for a preaching ministry. It has the important merits of simplicity and conciseness, and in its new form will continue to be a first resource for students. I cordially commend it." -- I. Howard Marshall , University of Aberdeen "Gary Burge has shared his lifelong close association with the Gospel of John in a way that puts all those who turn to this subtle Gospel in his debt. With balance and reliability he leads a reader through matters external and internal to the text that influence interpretation. Bibliographies, well-chosen footnotes, and a precious guide to electronic resources make this book a unique contribution to all who teach, study, preach, and pray with the Fourth Gospel in hand." -- Francis J. Moloney, SDB , Australian Catholic University, Melbourne "This manual exposes students to a breathtaking array of issues, studies, strategies, scholars, and tools. It draws on the author's insights from more than four decades of high-level involvement in Johannine scholarship [and] equips readers to grapple with the evidence and to make up their own minds about crucial questions." -- Robert W. Yarbrough , Covenant Theological Seminary "Gary Burge draws his reader into the detective work of Johannine scholarship, equipping apprentice investigators with the background and methods by which they can arrive at their own logical insights. Teachers of the Gospel of John will find this a practical resource for pedagogic strategies; students will discover a course text that will excite them to become sleuths." -- Jo-Ann A. Brant , Goshen College "An excellent text for the classroom and personal study alike! In his newly revised introduction, Gary Burge offers a highly accessible understanding of the essential issues needed for meaningful interpretations of the Gospel of John. As a highly trustworthy guide to this amazing Gospel, Burge empowers biblical interpretation at its best!" -- Paul N. Anderson , George Fox University
