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.
