Writing particularly for the searching layperson who wants to explore what the good news is all about, Open Door on John is an easy-to-use and imaginative introduction to study on the gospel of John. Mysterious, enchanting, glorious: John's Gospel is perhaps the most popular… and perhaps the least understood. The author invites the reader to “come and see”; to push open the door to life in all its fullness, and catch a glimpse of heaven beyond.
Included is the full text of John's gospel, broken down into short chapters, together with succinct commentaries on each chapter. The book contains questions for reflection, and notes on how to use it alone or in group study. There are a number of short “interviews” from characters in the gospel – John the Baptist, Nathaniel, Andrew, Nicodemus and the woman from Samaria whom Jesus met at the well. Open Door on John is an ideal book for those who want an invigorating and entertaining Bible study guide.
