Forth Gospel is far from being "just" spiritualized gospel, departing from historicity of the Jesus' life reports provided by synoptic Gospels. Its rich layers of theological understanding of Jesus and His mission are certainly not a result of departure and compromise with historical validity of it. In explaining why is that the case, Raymond Brown was and still is one of the best. I highly recommend it.
Unlike other commentaries on the Gospel of John, this one analyzes and presents the scholarly debates in a form that the interested layperson can appreciate. Whether discussing John's version of miracle stories found in the other Gospels, explaining the meaning of obscure Greek words, or pointing out the relevance of Jesus' words and deeds, Father Brown speaks to scholars and laypeople alike.
The Intro is very detailed, presenting ideas from many sides and competently explaining his views, theologically and epistemologically.
The exposition is separated into Notes--focusing on Greek, Hebrew words, Patristic thoughts & interpretations & current (at least current at the time of the book 1966) theologians. Then come "Comments: General". Finally "Comments: Detailed" - There he puts everything from the Intro, Notes, General Comments together.
There is a lot to learn and use. But I found Carson's Pillar Commentary "more quotable" and more useable for my work. I think the age of the book had some affect. Brown spent a lot of time in the Intro and even Comments addressing Bultmann and that theology (historical Jesus). In my limited experience Bultmann and his theology is not so prevalent and influential now as in 1966.
Still if your looking for an exposition on John, the little I used it I would still recommend it. It is academically top notch. I would recommend Carson a little more though.
Price was amazing!
Book was in excellent condition.
