Product Description

Frederick Dale Bruner's Gospel of John is a highly stimulating resource for preachers, teachers, and students of the Fourth Gospel.

The author of the much-loved two-volume commentary on Matthew (Eerdmans: 2007), Frederick Dale Bruner now offers The Gospel of John: A Commentary--making available even more of his lifetime of study and teaching.

Rather than relying primarily on recent scholarship, Bruner honors and draws from the church's major historical commentators of John including Augustine, Chrysostom, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Henry, Bultmann, Barrett, and more. Thus, his is a work of theological interpretation as well as exegesis.

This "historical interpretation" also sheds light on Bruner's "contemporary interpretation," which includes a clear translation of the text, references to major recent scholarship, and Bruner's personal application of the Gospel to present-day experience. Rich in biblical insights, ecumenical in tone, broadly historical, deeply theological, and lovingly written, Bruner's Gospel of John promises to be an invaluable reference for pastors and teachers.

    Bruner's commentary on the Gospel of Matthew was amazing, and he follows that up with another solid commentary on the Gospel of John. Bruner's commentary on John is a great resource for pastors.

    I am 19 weeks into preaching the Gospel of John. A plethora of commentaries are scattered across my desk but I keep on picking up Bruner's magnificent work. Bruner's wonderful translations, the accessibility of a long history great theologians' work on John, the presence of the Gospel, and the clarity of Bruner's focus on our Savior--- these are the key ingredients of an amazing preaching and (surprise!) devotional commentary. My congregation loves the journey we've been on in John and I respond: "Read Bruner's commentary." A resource like this comes along once in a few generations. Most precious of all, however, is the presence of Bruner's own heart shaped by the words of Christ. Peppered in the text are honest observations of a faith that has wrestled with grief, doubt, and self-salvation projects. And the work of the Holy Spirit is clear: Bruner loves Jesus because Jesus has loved him first. Though I've never met Dr. Bruner, I can tell that he's been saved by the Gospel and has been captivated by the love of God and thus his commentary on John orients us correctly: aware of history, awed by Jesus' words and works, unimpressed by tangents and rabbit holes, Bruner makes clear the revelation of Jesus to a heart sick with sin. In short, Bruner's commentary points to Jesus rather than his own work. I wish all commentaries were written like this one.

    I've been waiting for this Bruner commentary on John for well over a decade. Thirsting for the oasis yet to appear. And now, reading the prologue to John feels just like being at a West Coast Pastors Conference with Dale Bruner. First he compliments everyone, then we stand for the recitation of the gospel - his translation from the greek, deeply internalized, and recited from memory, not read - with some contemporary words, then the interpretation - broad ranging, pulling all the commentators in, ultra respectful. Anxious to lift up Christ pastorally - but seriously academic - a craftsman's toolbox, Bruner wants us to believe in Christ in the same way John does in his gospel.

    How many times have you purchased a commentary only to find out that either it was too technical and not very helpful for the sermon or that it lacked depth of exegesis and width of historical or contemporary scholarship? Not so with Dr. Bruner's commentaries which are great gifts to the Church and to her teachers and preachers.
