These are obviously very minor criticisms.

I highly recommend this book for seminary students, Bible teachers, pastors, and scholars.

Kostenberger does a similarly good job as does Carson in his commentary on John.

Format: Hardcover
Andreas Kostenberger has provided us with a genuine treat in his new commentary on the Gospel of John. This commentary is in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, which is developing into one of the most useful series of commentaries for those who love God's word.

Like all of the commentaries in this series, Kostenberger's volumn is written from an evangelical standpoint that embraces the Gospel of John as being the authoritative word of God. This work consistently interacts with the Greek text and the majority of major contemporary commentaries on John.

Highlights of this volumn include:

1. It is extremely well written. Even in a series known for its readabilty, Kostenberger stands out as a model of clarity. Rather than simply checking selections, I have read this commentary from cover to cover - and it is a great joy to read.

2. Kostenberger makes outstanding use of footnotes. This feature makes it particularly easy to find both the support for his interpretations as well as dissenting voices. I suspect this feature alone will make Kostenberger's commentary the first one to be pulled off of the shelf.

3. Unlike many commentaries that answer all the questions except the one you are actually asking; this volumn shows exceptional judgment in selecting and addressing questions. Preachers will find this commentary a particulary rich and helpful resource in sermon preparation.

Are there reservations in recommending this commentary? Yes. First, while anyone could benefit from Kostenberger's excellent work - it will be best used by those who have at least one year of Koine Greek.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kostenberger is one of the premier Evangelical scholars today on the gospel of John. I would say if you purchase only one exegetical commentary on John, this "may" be the best one to get because it summarizes the best of what has previously been accomplished in conservative commentaries on John. Having said that, this is also its weakness. I am surprised that Kostenberger's extensive work on John's gospel has not generated much in the way of fresh (or better yet refreshingly different) perspectives on the gospel. By this, I don't mean novel interpretations. By way of comparison, both Morris and Carson have very different perspectives and emphases on John's gospel that are equally very helpful. If you have those 2 commentaries, Kostenberger adds very little that is new and would not be worth the extra purchase. Also, I was hoping for a little more depth on certain passages that he seemed to gloss over or rush through.

Furthermore, there is a slightly disturbing aspect to Kostenberger that I should point out. I have found that he parrot's Carson's comments almost to the point of repeating him verbatim at times. I realize plagiarism is a serious charge and it seems like an editor should have picked up on this. In either case, I have used these commentaries side by side for nearly 4 years now (preaching through the gospel) and I have found this to be consistently the case, passage after passage. In some ways, that is a compliment to Carson, because his commentary is still the most insightful of all Evangelical commentaries on John.

Having said all that, Kostenberger is still a very good overall commentary. It is clear, to the point, faithful to the text and conservative in its interpretations. In addition to Morris and Carson (the best), I would also recommend Keener's 2 volume set. He offers good insight into historical background issues that the others do not and it is not as ponderous as some have claimed it to be.
