You'll find in this book no comprehensive discussion of the Johannine community, of the development and authorship of the Gospel, or even of Johannine theology in general. You'll find very little about Brown's contributions to understanding Johannine eschatology or to the identification of the "beloved disciple." What you will get is a concise verse-by-verse commentary of the Gospel and epistles, which in itself provides a taste of Brown's thinking.
Scripture from the Revised New Testament is printed on the top of each page, with Brown's commentary on the bottom half. Because it's a summary only, providing nothing new or provocative, I have a hard time granting it more than three stars, yet it is a must-read.
To date we are learning the first part of John. When resuming Spring, 2013, we will study the 2nd part. UDLLI (University of Dayton: Lifelong Learning Institute) Must be 50 yrs. old to attend. Cost - reasonable!
Amazon sent this in a brief time frame too! I can always count on Amazon!!
