From the Back Cover

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

John the apostle, the last of the original twelve, writes the final and most spiritual of the four Gospels. His intention is to clearly announce that Jesus is the eternal Son of God who has come in the flesh to redeem the world. This volume unpacks and explains the beautiful and rich signs and symbols that John used so that "you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name."

More About the Author

Most of my publication has been in New Testament studies, including detailed commentaries on First Peter (1988), the Book of Revelation (1997), the letter to the Hebrews (2003) and most recently the Gospel of John (2010, in the New International Commentary series).

"Passing by the Dragon" marks a crossover into the field of American literature, specifically the work of Flannery O'Connor, whose work I have known and admired since around 1975. My sister-in-law tells me that at last I have written something she can actually read! In this book I have tried to provide a reading of O'Connor's fiction that draws in turn on her own reading of the Bible. My book is no substitute for reading O'Connor herself (much less the Bible!), but I hope it will be a useful tool both for lovers of O'Connor and for lovers of the Old and New Testaments. I have taught religious studies at Missouri State University in Springfield, and New Testament at several theological seminaries (Gordon-Conwell and Andover-Newton in Massachusetts, Fuller in Pasadena, California and in Seattle, and Bangor Seminary in Portland, Maine). I have been "retired" since 1994, and my wife and I now live in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Understanding the Bible Commentary Series is designed for use by laypersons and pastors. The commentaries are attractively designed and contained succinct but good commentary on each passage in the gospel being studied. The commentary is able to cut through scholarly jargon getting to the essential message being conveyed by the evangelist. As a Presbyterian pastor I often turn to the Understanding the Bible Commentary series in preparing sermons and lessons. Useful and economic. I highly recommend this fine series.
