Considered one of the best introductions to Johannine study, Kysar's revised work brings the academic discussions up to date and now includes sections on women and postmodern approaches to the Gospel. His classic text offers accessible entry into critical issues of John's Gospel and a solid foundation for scholarly study, theological interpretation, and preaching. This book is addressed to the beginning student of New Testament literature. It does not pretend to be either technical or scholarly, but aspires to introduce the reader to the thought and symbolism of the Fourth Gospel as those matters are increasingly understood among contemporary New Testament scholars.
Robert Kysar is Bandy Professor Emeritus of Preaching and New Testament at Candler School of Theology, Emory University.
