Product Description

As the inaugural volume in the Pillar New Testament Commentary series, D.A. Carson's The Gospel According to John set the tone for what would become of this now widely respected series. Carson's primary focus is on the flow of the text rather than an overly burdensome concentration on technical issues. However, where necessary those elements are brought in and thoroughly reviewed and the issues adjudicated with precision and great competency.

In doing so, Carson provides a basic map of contemporary Johannine scholarship, but also focuses on the theological contributions of the Gospel, especially it's evangelistic themes. A well-rounded and sober introduction dealing with issues such as authorship, authenticity, and other matters makes this an ideal volume on John's gospel.

Publisher's Description

In this solid evangelical commentary on John's Gospel, a respected Scripture expositor makes clear the flow of the text, engages a small but representative part of the massive secondary literature on John, shows how the Fourth Gospel contributes to biblical and systematic theology, and offers a consistent exposition of John as an evangelistic Gospel. The comprehensive introduction treats such matters as the authenticity, authorship, purpose, and structure of the Gospel.

    taking a BSF course on John and this book has been very helpful with additional information on the Book of John. Had actually ordered book when before I had signed up for the study so the timing was great. Keep up the good work

    In preaching through the book of John, I've used many commentaries and have found Carson's to be the best work out there. I suggest one consult Morris (NICNT and Reflections on the Gospel of John), Ridderbos, and occasionally Beasley Murray (WBC) for other helpful works. Kostenberger's BEC work echo's most of the above and should really only be used if you are looking for a summary (though his footnotes can occasionally be helpful).

    Carson's commentary on the Gospel of John (Pillar New Testament) is excellent, and arguably one of the better commentary. Thoroughly evangelical, biblically solid and clear, understandable sentences. He processes the Greek fluently and translates effectively. One of the "staples" in the commentaries on John - well worth owning!

    This is an excellent commentary on the important book of John written by a respected expositor that I have personally heard him preaching in three sermons recently in a winter conference.

    I am a layman, unschooled in Greek and Hebrew, who nevertheless enjoys reading commentaries on a fairly regular basis as part of my person growth in the Word. This commentary is the best I have ever read, with so much meat to savor it is a delight to read. I add my review to the others to let you know that although the author is obviously a scholar, he also knows how to write clearly, in plain language that anyone can understand. This book is special in my humble opinion.
