Discovering John


SPCK 2003

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Gospel of John has been the subject of intense scrutiny for centuries. It has profoundly shaped Christian doctrine and inspired artists, musicians, theologians and ordinary Christians. Despite the Gospel's ability to communicate the good news to the simple believer while concurrently plumbing the depths of Christian faith for the sophisticated, it has been sharply criticized as “world-denying,” “andocentric” and “anti-Jewish.” What should we make of a Gospel that provokes such diverse reactions? Does John still have meaning for the Church and contemporary society? Does it need to be reinterpreted for today's world? Is it anti-Semitic? In this masterly study, Ruth Edwards seeks to help those interested in this provocative Gospel decide for themselves the answers to these and other questions.
