Notes for the Study and Exposition of 1st John is a book that is just that-reference notes that have been divided into sermon-sized pieces to facilitate preaching, teacing and study through the epistle of 1 John. This book is not designed as a flowing commentary to be read from cover to cover by itself. It should be used with an open Bible and in conjuction with other study aids. It is not a collection of sermons, but it is meant to encourage expository preaching through the epistle. It is not fully an exegetical commentary, but it has important clues for expositors to accurately get at the meaning and appropriately apply 1 John. It is not a teacher's quarterly, but it will help one to teach through the epistle in a class or small group setting.
