In this detailed, elegantly written commentary on The Gospel of John J. Ramsey Michaels gives primary attention to the "Gospel of Belief" in its present form rather than to the sources or traditions that many believe lay behind it. Michaels examines the Gospel's literary character and construction, as well as its theological significance and message for the Christian community in its own time, through the ages, and for today.
While the NICNT series is globally renowned for its attention to scholarship, and expositional excellence, Michaels' The Gospel of John is unique in that it marks the culmination of 50 years of classroom teaching on the NT, and seventeen years of writing and research for this particular volume. It is excellence and commitment at an even higher level, and yielding an even greater result. All students of the Bible will benefit from this accessible, yet detailed and scholarly, commentary, and is a "must" have for every pastor, scholar, and student.
