    MY REVIEW NIV QUICKVIEW OF THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

    I bought a copy to review in hope of purchasing more for evangelism. I really like the concept of visual infographics as an aid to understand the Gospel of John. Here are my PROs and CONs about this booklet.

    PROs:

    The Quickview of the Christian Faith is the biggest surprise. It is colorful and nearly a third of the booklet. It contains "How did we get the Bible," "Why read the Bible," "Who is God," "How does sin separate us from God," "Who is Jesus Christ," "How can we be forgiven and live for God," What is prayer," "Why go to church," "What is God's plan for salvation," and "What is faith." It could be a stand-alone product. It has biblical references but no biblical quotes.

    Some of the infographics are good like "Big ideas in John" and "The seven 'I Am' statements of Jesus." I just wish there were more like these.

    CONs:

    The 7-point type is really hard to read which is surprising because the booklet size is 5" X 7-1/4." The booklet also contains 1 John which could have been omitted if the point size and/or type face could have been bigger.

    Some of the infographics in the Gospel of John either do not help one understand the gospel of John nor the Christian belief. For example, a whole page is dedicated to "Peter: a complicated character." The subtitle is "most readers can relate to Peter because of his numerous successes and failures during his journey with Jesus." It lists Peter's successes and failures. It would have been better if it stated that Jesus can transform your life like Peter despite your failures in the process (or something to that effect).

    There is no infographic for John 3:16 nor for John 20:30-31! This is the biggest surprise for me. It seems to me, if this booklet was produced for evangelism and to give away, this would be a priority. There are no infographics about belief or eternal life (key ideas in the Gospel of John).

    Bottom line, I can't recommend the NIV Quickview Gospel of John.

    Excellent resource to give to new believers, new small group members, new church members. It has both the Gospel of John and 1st Epistle of John. Has helpful articles scattered throughout the text. The end notes/appendices were excellent basic theology for new believers and seekers. Everyone who participated in our My Hope with Billy Graham event received one of these from our church. Could be the best money we ever spent.
