"Anyone who dares to write yet another commentary on the Gospel of John must give reasons for doing so," writes Don Carson in his preface to this book. With this acclaimed volume in the Pillar New Testament Commentary series, Carson seeks above all to explain the text of John's Gospel to those who minister the Word of God to others, either by preaching or by leading Bible studies. However, the commentary is also designed for used by informed laypersons for purposes of personal edification. Throughout his commentary Carson attempts the following: to make clear the flow of the text, focusing on the movement of thought rather than on word studies and Greek syntax; to engage a small but representative part of the massive secondary literature on John, providing a kind of map of contemporary studies on this Gospel; to draw a few lines toward establishing how John's Gospel contributes to biblical and systematic theology; and, finally, to offer a consistent exposition of John as an evangelistic Gospel. Preceded by a comprehensive introduction treating such matters as the authenticity, authorship, purpose and structure of the Gospel, this commentary on John exhibits the solid evangelical Scripture exposition for which Carson is well known and respected.

While there are numerous studies of God in the Old Testament, the concept of God has largely been ignored as a subject of inquiry in contemporary New Testament theology. As this superb work by Marianne Meye Thompson shows, however, an understanding of the identity of God is central to the New Testament, particularly to the Gospel of John. Thompson here offers the first comprehensive study of the concept of God in John's Gospel. She shows that one must first grasp the importance of God to John before one can properly appreciate the Gospel's Christology and overarching message. By arguing that John is rightly understood to be a "theocentric" work, Thompson challenges the prevailing theory that John is primarily concerned with Christology. While Thompson uses traditional historical and exegetical approaches to the New Testament and ancient sources, her study is mainly theological in scope. She asks how John portrays God and how, after reading the Gospel, we ought to speak of the identity of God. Unlike many recent studies of John, this one does not try to reconstruct the history behind the text but, rather, tries to fully illumine the theological content of John's message. A seminal study with lasting implications for New Testament theology, The God of the Gospel of John will become a standard text for students of the New Testament.
