Editorial Reviews

This is an excellent and timely collection, which sets out the state of play in Johannine studies and offers new insight into particular theological and historical issues. It offers much of value to scholars in the field, while also accessible to students wishing to deepen their engagement with the Fourth Gospel.
Journal for the Study of the New Testament

. . . this book is a feast of Johannine scholarship for pastors, scholars, and college students, as it raises all the critical concerns in Johannine studies and presents an excellent overview of last century’s major trends. A must read.
Religious Studies Review

Together, these essays and responses constitute a veritable synthesis of the shape of Johannine scholarship today. . . . This collection is a gem in every way.
Catholic Library World

This volume is invaluable for anyone interested in the Johannine literature. Scholars and nonscholars alike will find in it a responsible treatment of past scholarship and hopeful signs for future developments, which were themselves hallmarks of Brown’s own scholarship.
Alan C. Mitchell, Georgetown University, Washington

Taken as a whole, this volume is an effective tribute to one of the seminal NT scholars of the twentieth century.
Catholic Biblical Quarterly

This collection succeeds in portraying the wide range of Brown’s scholarly and pastoral work and in pointing out some directions that further reflection on the topics of that work, particularly the work on the Johannine literature, can take.
Catholic Biblical Quarterly

This book is a rare treat not only for scholars, but also for advanced students of the Fourth Gospel. It is a fitting tribute to a scholar and teacher of unsurpassed stature who now enjoys the full life in abundance for which we hope.
New Theology Review

The contributors to this volume have been engaged deeply in the scholarship of John’s gospel and epistles and most enjoyed a warm friendship with Brown in life. The few who knew him only in his writings record the influence these had on their study and teaching.
