Product Description

In reaction to the dry historical-critical approach of so much of modern scholarship, Edwards examines the imaginative dimension of the Fourth Gospel and how it affects art and literature, bringing out the views of major and minor commentators throughout the ages. A provocative new angle.

Editorial Reviews

"Mark Edwards' John commentary breaks new ground in the field of the reception history of biblical texts. Displaying a remarkable knowledge of its different readings, he brings into dialogue the most diverse and unexpected commentators on the text: bishops, scholars, devotional writers, poets, artists, hymn-writers, and provides the whole with a wonderfully lucid and learned survey of the history of Johannine interpretion."
John Riches, Professor of Divinity with Biblical Criticism, University of Glasgow <!--end-->

"An attractive inventory of exegetical opinion on one of the most important books of the NT. A true mine of information, published in a series that makes the life of researchers easier."
International Review of Biblical Studies

“The commentary provides a wonderful smorgasbord of readings and interpretations, drawn from all centuries. Thus the reader is put in touch with a representative sample of readings, interpretations and imaginative appropriations of the Gospel.” Australian Religious Studies Review

"In Edwards' hands ‘reception history’ becomes a feast of allusions and references around each Johannine text. The mixture is rich and provocative, making you want to read more and more."
Robert Kysar, Bandy Professor Emeritus of Preaching and New Testament, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

"Edwards has provided New Testament scholars with a valuable resource for understanding and appreciating the history of interpretation of the Fourth Gospel. The commentary makes a persusaive case for taking seriously the richness and the value of premodern exegetical insight, artistic interpretation, and reception history for understanding the biblical text, and I look forward to other commentaries appearing in the series."
William M. Wright, Emory Universitiy
