Product Description

This commentary offers a fresh way of conveying the Johannine message to a twenty-first century audience. In addition to providing familiarity with central matters related to the gospel, it helpfully engages the two dominant methods used in current interpretive work, namely, narrative and historical approaches to John. It also offers a synthesis of existing material and introduces readers to a neglected element in Johannine interpretation: the gospels negotiation of the Roman imperial world.

Warren Carter is the Lindsey P. Pherigo Professor of New Testament at Saint Paul School of theology.

Publisher's Description

The Final Volume in a Well-Received Gospel Study

John: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist is an accessible introduction to the Fourth Gospel. This book examines three aspects of John's Gospel: John's telling of the story of Jesus, his interpretation of Jesus for his readers, and his formulation of all of this into the Gospel of Jesus.

Carter surveys the central issues of this Gospel and engages with narrative and historical approaches, the two dominant methods used in interpreting John's Gospel. In addition, he introduces his readers to a consideration of the Gospel's negotiation of the Roman imperial world.

This book is written for college and seminary students, clergy seeking resources for teaching and preaching, and the laity, especially Bible study groups who like to engage a topic in some depth.
