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 thefield of the reception history of biblical texts. Displaying aremarkable knowledge of its different readings, he brings intodialogue 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 andlearned 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 themost important books of the NT. A true mine of information,published in a series that makes the life of researcherseasier."
International Review of Biblical Studies

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

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

"Edwards has provided New Testament scholars with a valuableresource for understanding and appreciating the history ofinterpretation of the Fourth Gospel. The commentary makes apersusaive case for taking seriously the richness and the value ofpremodern exegetical insight, artistic interpretation, andreception history for understanding the biblical text, and I lookforward to other commentaries appearing in the series."
William M. Wright, Emory Universitiy
