Employing the methodology of social-scientific biblical criticism, the author investigates the pneumatology of John and 1 John. With particular attention paid to the spirit passages in John, the pneumatology of 1 John is studied with a view to the development between the two writings and to what this suggests about the socio-cultural context of the Johannine community. This study explores patron-client relations, and specifically the variation known as brokerage, and its explanatory power in elucidating the relationship between God, Jesus, the Spirit-Paraclete, and believers.

The author asserts that the Spirit in John is characterized as a broker and that this understanding figures prominently in the theology of the fourth Gospel as well as in the debate reflected in 1 John.

    This is an excellent work of presenting and legitimately sustaining a helpful heuristic model for reading and analyzing the Johannine writings. Although the author specifically addresses Johannine pneumatology, as I read through the monograph I found myself reflecting on many other intertextual and conceptual connections, both of biblical and non-biblical sources. The title didn't really "speak" to me and I nearly passed over the opportunity to avail myself to this month's free access provided by Logos/Faithlife. So grateful that I didn't! The author is thorough; subsequently, the reading is frequently repetitive. But I considered that for me, this was likely a helpful aid to my comprehension and retention. I'm very thankful I was prompted to further check it out and read it through.
