5 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Peter A. Bauernfeind on June 13, 2009
Format: Paperback
Overall, "Reading John" is a solid commentary, although it is not a verse by verse commentary. Rather, the book deals with themes and concepts and does a fine job cross-referencing them throughout the Gospel and Letters of John.

The author spent several pages at the beginning arguing for his preferred chronology of the four texts. While the brief historic overview was insightful, the author does not make a convincing case as to why his (or any other orderings) really matters in regards to the text and interpretation of the text.

This book was used in a college-level class for pastors and church leaders. It was a good text book but anyone wanting to study alone would also benefit from it.
