Product Description

Despite its often simple language, the Gospel of John is complex and theologically provocative. Koester's accessible overview explores age-old questions concerning the apostle's understanding of God, the activity of the Spirit, and what it means to believe. He also discusses John's theological language, including the expressions "born again" and "the way." This work will be read with great benefit by by both laypeople and those who have been formally theologically trained.

Publisher Description

This accessible, engaging work explores the major theological dimensions of John’s Gospel, including God, the world and its people, Jesus, the crucifixion and resurrection, the Spirit, faith, and discipleship. Craig Koester’s Word of Life is notable for its comprehensive treatment of themes and its close, careful focus on the biblical text, on the narrative itself.

In his introduction Koester provides a succinct overview of the Gospel and shows how disputes about John’s theology throughout history have significantly shaped the church and wider society. In the course of his discussion, such expressions as being “born again” and Jesus as “the way”---which evoke both interest and uneasiness today---become much clearer in the context of the Gospel as a whole.

Koester interacts with the best of current research and makes creative proposals about how to understand the many aspects of John’s theology. His clear and highly readable guide to the theology of John’s Gospel will appeal to a wide range of readers.
